I was reading Rachelle Gardner's post about tough reviewers and the things they say, and the comment about The Great Gatesby about killed me. I hate that book.

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
“It grieves me deeply that we Americans should take as our classic a book that is no more than a lengthy description of the doings of fops.”

Amen! I didn't enjoy it either. :D

Aww...I love the Great Gatsby. A lengthy description of hedonism and debauchery. Awesome.

I'm with you, Jess. Loved Gatsby. All his whimsy, debauchery and greed--an off-kilter Gordon Gekko of the Roaring 20s! And Daisy was just so polite of it all, too.

Ah, them's were the days! :)
