    If you liked the Great Gatsby this might be one to check out. The main character isn't quite like Gatsby: he seems to be the sort that starts out with the white upper-class set, and his quest for a sort of "American Dream" isn't like Gatsby's rise to riches, but I felt like Amory's fate mirrored the "downfall" like Gatsby's. The chapters on the romance of Amory and his gals somehow makes me visualize it was very similar to F. Scott (Scotty) Fitzgerald's courting of Zelda, or if you are not familiar with that history, think of Jay Gatsby and his (dopey) Daisy Buchanan.
