Availability: Out Of Stock

The Great Gatsby is narrated through the character Nick Carraway who is a graduate of Yale and a war veteran from World War I. Nick Carraway is returning home in search of a new career. He has rented a house and his neighboring mansion happens to be that of Gatsby’s. Mystery surrounds Gatsby, very often the host of most extravagant parties. What is the intention behind Gatsby’s invitation to Nick to his extravagant party? Why is Gatsby a reluctant host even though he himself throws such parties? Why does he not even have a drink in his parties? What is his interest in Nick’s cousin Daisy and is there a story behind it? These are some of the questions that make this novel an intriguing read. The story is set in the 1920s, a prosperous time in the United States. The story is a tale of love, loss, and deceit. It has elements of the current happenings of the time like the bootlegging that was prevalent in the United States during the Prohibition era when liquor was banned and also the jazz, which was the hit genre of music at the time. The book is considered a classic American novel. The Modern Library has termed it the second best Novel in English of 20th century. The novel has been adapted into a feature film six times since 1926 to the 21st century. It has also had several adaptations in television too. The book was incorporated into an opera in 1999. The book never reached the heights of recognition it deserved during F. Scott Fitzgerald’s lifetime and the New York Times in its obituary to him described Gatsby as evidence of great potential that was never reached.
