The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

 

A portrait of the Jazz Age in all of its decadence and excess, Gatsby captured the spirit of the author's generation and earned itself a permanent place in American mythology. Self-made, self-invented millionaire Jay Gatsby embodies some of Fitzgerald's--and his country's--most abiding obsessions: money, ambition, greed, and the promise of new beginnings. "Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter--tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther.... And one fine morning--" Gatsby's rise to glory and eventual fall from grace becomes a kind of cautionary tale about the American Dream.

It's also a love story, of sorts, the narrative of Gatsby's quixotic passion for Daisy Buchanan. The pair meet five years before the novel begins, when Daisy is a legendary young Louisville beauty and Gatsby an impoverished officer. They fall in love, but while Gatsby serves overseas, Daisy marries the brutal, bullying, but extremely rich Tom Buchanan. After the war, Gatsby devotes himself blindly to the pursuit of wealth by whatever means--and to the pursuit of Daisy, which amounts to the same thing. "Her voice is full of money," Gatsby says admiringly, in one of the novel's more famous descriptions. His millions made, Gatsby buys a mansion across Long Island Sound from Daisy's patrician East Egg address, throws lavish parties, and waits for her to appear. When she does, events unfold with all the tragic inevitability of a Greek drama, with detached, cynical neighbor Nick Carraway acting as chorus throughout.

Hehe i finally can put a face 2 asadollah mirza now...will also be looking at the other episode on youtube. It's a shame that they have banned this book in Iran because it really is a book that takes a hold of you and doesnt let go until the final word has been read...but they'll ban anything they can get their hands on.

There's a segment in an iranian radio show here in Gothenburg where they read different iranian books on air...I haven't paid much attention to the previous stories until they started reading Hamkhoone by Maryam Riahi. I'm so hooked and even if I'm in class I try to pay attention to the story and the lecture...it isn't that easy! This book has turned out to be a favourite of mine and I can't wait until I get my hands on a copy :clap2:
