A short read, which doesn't make it any less of a master piece. A story set in 1920's. It's about a mysterious man, Gatsby, Who throws a parties every night that he never attends. His neighbor becomes good friends with and gets to know Gatsby. This book has amazing themes but the best has to be dissatisfaction, which is a driving force of why Gatsby was so successful among other things. I have read this book a few times and each time is has been though provoking to me. You can check out this book at the Colona Public Library. ~Ashley
