Jacque came up with this awesome challenge. The rule was simple: step 1 - go to GoodReads and figure out which book was on there the longest. Step 2 - Read the book! Simple!
I had heard so many things about this book and I figured out that either you love it or do not. I am on the do not side. I know that this is a classic and stands the test of time but I was not all that into it.
When Jacque came up with this challenge I was very excited because I knew that this was on my "To-Read" list the longest. I kept putting it off (& no real reason why), so I picked up and started reading.
I was sucked into the world of West Egg and East Egg. The lives of Nick, Gatsby, Daisy, Tom, and Jordan was nothing more than a soap opera. We have affairs, distrust, liars, and parties. What more do you need? Well, I don't know but I was not into this book and it took a lot out of me to finish. I have read other books by Fitzgerald and LOVED them but this was not one of them.
However, I can mark it off my list!
