    My Review for The Great Gatsby

    What a fantastic book! If you like the roaring twenties you will love it too. This book will keep you entertained from start to finish. The description of every detail such as the clothing and the cars will make you want to relive the era. The author does a wonderful job descrbing every detail from the hot summer days to the balmy nights.This is a wonderful story written before the great depression.A great rendition of romance and infedility. This is perfect for both men and women.
