The Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald

Review by Shwetha H S

One of the famous novels of all time, The Great Gatsby perfectly depicts mankind’s need of pomp and show. It shows the bare and unravelled nature of human mind in the behaviour of each character. It also manages to convince the reader to question the priorities of love and prestige in their society. Narrator is a third person as well as he is in the story. It is a recount of a phase in his life. With very few characters, the story line is simple and is not confusing; no beating around the bush to extend the story. Though it is written in a different era, this story is still applicable in current time.
