The novel takes place in the 1920s New York and it's a glamorous, ironical and compassionate book. It is the story of Jay Gatsby who came so mysteriously to West Egg, of his sumptuous entertainments, and of his love for Daisy Buchanan – a story that ranges from pure lyrical beauty to sheer brutal realism, and is infused with a sense of the strangeness of human circumstance in a heedless universe.
It is a magical, living book, blended of irony, romance, and mysticism.
It is indeed a very interesting and magical story that describes perfectly the charm and glamour of the 1920s. We see the life of the mysterious Jay Gatsby through the eyes of our narrator Nick. We observe how money can make you look different in the eyes of others and how at the same time when you need them people can abandon you.
It is a sad book but it is also very beautiful. The author writes very beautifully and he creates the perfect atmosphere for the novel.
I wish I had read it sooner because I really liked it and it among my favorite classics.
