    brilliant representation of the era

    This story has realistic, mutlifaceted, dynamic characters who serve to represent the spirit and perspective of the time- 1930s Hollywood. I am not a fan of Hollywood myself, and I respect the remarkably objective view with which Fitzgerald portrays the decandence and glamour of Hollywood, critically yet fairly. The prose is flowing and concise, and the book goes by very quickly. Unfortunately the story is unfinished, and only about 65% of the novel is written. It is diassapointing to stop in the middle of such a great story, but well worth the read, especially if you like Fitzgerald. Just as Gatsby captures the progress and adventure of 1920's America, Tycoon represents the American dream on the last western frontier.

    Even though this was an unfinished novel it didn't change the fact that it was probably one of the best works of the great F. S. Fitzgerald. I loved it so much that as soon as I came to the last page I turned to page one and started reading it again. That happens to me very, very seldom.
