At the moment, I am reading THE GREAT GATSBY by F. Scott Fitzgerald. After watching the movie, and reading excerpts from THE GREAT GATSBY, I decided it was time to read the book from start to finish. Although I am only about forty pages into it, I have realized that Fitzgerald has a beautiful style of writing. His descriptions are vivid and bring the reader into the story. So far what interests me the most is the attitudes of the people during the roaring twenties; they had such a care free way of living.
