The Great Gatsby Reviews

  • Bookdragon Sean

    This is a good book, though it is so ridiculously overrated.

    There are so many great books out there that will never get the attention they deserve. They will be forgotten and their wisdom heard by only a select few who are willing to go looking for it. So it annoys me when books like this are acclaimed by critics and readers alike as the best pieces of fiction in existence (when they are not.) There’s so much more out there!

    Anyway, rant over. The thing I like most about The Great Gatsby is the

    ترتبط هذه الرواية في ذهني بذكريات جميلة ودافئة

    فلقد درستها في عامي الأول في الكلية

    وكنت أقرؤها بلذة خالصة لن يعرفها من يقوم بقرائتها مترجمة

    لا أجد رواية تقوم بتجسيد الحلم الأمريكي كهذه الرواية

    وعليك أن تقارن فكرة الحلم الأمريكي في بدايتها بفكرة الحلم الإنساني ككل

    هذا الشبق العظيم للوصول إلى القمة

    الحصول على كل شيء

    النجاح العظيم

    والحرية المطلقة

    فكرة الحلم الأمريكي ترجع جذورها إلى البدايات

    لحظة توقيع إعلان الاستقلال

    والذي يجعل الرجال جميعهم متساوين في الحقوق

    حيث خلقوا جميعاً من ربّ واحد بحقوق مستحقة

    Se me olvidó actualizar la info de este libro en GR, oops. Luego dejo un review por acá, aunque ya expliqué mi sentir en el Wrap up de Los Juegos de Booktube, en el canal.

    OH, y no estoy segura del rating que le puse al libro, en estos días pensaré si debo subirlo o bajarlo, sigo muy pensativa al respecto.

    After six years of these heated and polarized debates, I'm deleting the reviews that sparked them. Thanks for sharing your frustrations, joys, and insights with me, goodreaders. Happy reading!

    In love and good faith, always,

    COSÌ CONTINUIAMO A REMARE, BARCHE CONTRO LA CORRENTE, SOSPINTI SENZA POSA VERSO IL PASSATO

    Romanzo che mi è parso molto, molto cinematografico (anche se non credo Fitzgerald avesse ancora incominciato a lavorare a Hollywood quando Gatsby fu pubblicato).

    Ma il cinema per gli US (e per noi italiani) è la forma d’arte esportata meglio nel corso del Novecento, quella che si è diffusa di più, è diventata più famosa. Fitzgerald anche in questo seppe cogliere l’aria del tempo (e poi restare eterno come

    “Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. . . . And then one fine morning—

    So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past”

    i love this book. yes, it is a story about vapid and shallow people who live selfish and hedonistic lives and treat other people like playthings, but there is an elegance, a restraint to the prose that manages to discuss, in the same tone, both doomed love and the breakdown of the american dream. and it is masterful. some may say the great american novel.

    and so this:

    Jay Gatsby, is a mysterious young man, who gives extravagant parties on Long Island, New York, outside his palatial mansion , in the warm, lazy, summer nights. That he doesn't know the people he invites, not to mention the numerous gatecrashers, might make it a little strange, but this being the roaring 20's, anything goes, rumors abound about Gatsby, bootlegger ? Who cares, as long as the free liquor flows, the great food served, and the beautiful music, continues playing. Finally attending one ...more
