The exemplary novel of the Jazz Age, F. Scott Fitzgeralds' third book, The Great Gatsby (1925), stands as the supreme achievement of his career. T. S. Eliot read it three times and saw it as the "first step" American fiction had taken since Henry James; H. L. Mencken praised "the charm and beauty of the writing," as well as Fitzgerald's sharp social sense; and Thomas Wolfe hailed it as Fitzgerald's "best work" thus far. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when, The New York Times remarked, "gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession," it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s that resonates with the power of myth. A novel of lyrical beauty yet brutal realism, of magic, romance, and mysticism, The Great Gatsby is one of the great classics of twentieth-century literature.

Reviews
We don't. They remain part of the fantasy life in our head that dies with us. Most of us, however, do not act out that obsession with the opulent and garish extravaganzas that James Gatz (aka Jay Gatsby) was able to do with his gangster money. Most of the idle rich who frequented his parties are by implication assumed to have received their fortunes through inheritance or some corrupting connection. But Nick Carraway glibly reveals all the hypocrisy and corruptibility around him though he does not presume to judge. Yeah. The last hope that Jay may find one true love disappears when Tom and Daisy plan their getaway after the manslaughter. The durability of the novel lies in its' perspective on a peculiar condition of the heart cast with poetic language.
