The Great Gatsby
This is a story that unfolds in the 1920's, prohibition era. Nick is the narrator of the novel. Nick is a late 20 something, who is trying to decide how he wants to earn a living. The Great Gatsby is his elusive, rich neighbor that always seems to have lavish parties filled with random people, that most of whom he doesn't even know. One day he sends a personal invitation to Nick. Nick can't decide what the truth is about Gatsby and is seems to go from liking to disliking either him or the character he portrays. Nick, soon finds out that Gatsby has a somewhat unhealthy obsession with Nick's cousin Daisy.
This was a classic novel that I enjoyed and was entertained throughout with the various characters in Nick's life and the changing and somewhat twisting plot. Most of characters were not lovable but very memorable. It was a bit of a dark comedy and drama. I would recommend reading this and crossing it off your classic list. It is a fairly easy and enjoyable read.
