F. Scott Fitzgerald: Classic Works (Fall River Classics)

F. Scott Fitzgerald


Reviewed: 2019-11-08

Fitzgerald's writing - his words - have a certain effect on him. Some of his books and stories, if I stop and say sleep while in the middle of reading, I get visions -- dreams -- of the text, with me as one of the characters and usually an updated ("happening today") version. The first time this happened was with the Great Gatsby, the most recent time it was with The Diamond As Big As the Ritz. I started reading it and then after part 2 went to sleep, finished the story the next day to realize the dream I had the night before was an updated version of the story. I consider this an aspect of great writing!
