The Great Gatsby

Weitere Formate

A beautiful new edition of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel The Great Gatsby to coincide with the release of Baz Luhrmann's film.

'There was music from my neighbour's house through the summer nights. In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars.'

Everybody who is anybody is seen at the glittering parties held in millionaire Jay Gatsby's mansion in West Egg, east of New York. The riotous throng congregates in his sumptuous garden, coolly debating Gatsby's origins and mysterious past. None of the frivolous socialites understands him and among various rumours is the conviction that 'he killed a man'. A detached onlooker, Gatsby is oblivious to the speculation he creates, but always seems to be watching and waiting, though no one knows what for.

As writer Nick Carraway is drawn into this decadent orbit, Gatsby's destructive dreams and passions are revealed, leading to disturbing and tragic consequences.

'Not only a page turner and heartbreaker, it's one of the most quintessentially American novels ever written' Time

F. Scott Fitzgerald was born in St Paul, Minnesota in 1896. He studied at Princeton University before joining the army in 1917. In 1920 he married Zelda Sayre. Their traumatic relationship and subsequent breakdowns became a major influence on his writing. Among his publications were five novels, This Side of Paradise, The Great Gatsby, The Beautiful and the Damned, Tender is the Night and The Last Tycoon (his last and unfinished work); six volumes of short stories and The Crack-Up, a selection of autobiographical pieces. F. Scott Fitzgerald died suddenly in 1940.

The Great Gatsby
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Nürnberg am 19.10.2014
Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

"Der große Gatsby" ist ein großartiges Buch mit genialen Wendungen. Kein Wunder, dass es mehrfach verfilmt wurde. Auf relativ wenigen Seiten erzählt F. Scott Fitzgerald eine spannende, ergreifende, aber auch augenöffnende Geschichte.

The *GREAT* Gatsby
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 03.07.2013
Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

Unglaublich spannendes Buch welches den Zeitgeist der Roaring Twenties perfekt widergibt und den Leser in diese Zeit zurückversetzt. Authentisch geschrieben und mit einer Sprache die fesselt, legt man The Great Gatsby nicht mehr zur Seite, ehe man auf der letzten Seite angelangt ist, nur um dann nochmals von Vorn zu beginnen...
