The Great Gatsby Remains Great

image from Wikipedia

When American author author F. Scott Fitzgerald penned The Great Gatsby published in 1925, little did he know it would rank number one in the eyes of many critics for the remainder of the century and beyond.

Set largely on Long Island’s North Shore in 1922, the novel deals with the prosperity of the Roaring Twenties, Prohibition, bootlegging, shallowness of the wealthy class, greed, and most of all, the concept of the American Dream.

This book is a must read even for twenty-first century bookworms seeking new material. It remains amazingly relevant to every period of economic strife or growth encountered in the last hundred years.
