The Great Gatsby In A Nutshell

If you need a laugh on a Monday morning, this might do the trick.

Or, if you’ve never got around to reading The Great Gatsby–shame on you, by the way–and you want to get a feel for what it’s about, this will do the trick as well. Maybe.

Funny little two-minute video called Gatsby In A Nutshell. You’ll notice below that embedding is disabled. Simply click on the YouTube link to watch it.

    • Yes! It’s probably my favorite book. I’ll review it next week.

        How about you post a complete list of the books you have read, and mention which are the ones you loved, liked, disliked or even hated?

    For those who are reluctant to pick this book up, you might try listening to the audio book. The version I listened to is narrated by Tim Robbins, and I liked it a lot. Sometimes I have trouble reading the classics, but it’s much easier to listen to a well presented recording while commuting to and from work. It worked for Lolita too, narrated by Jeremy Irons.

  4. My lit teacher and I were talking about perfect pieces of writing. We threw around titles like To Kill a Mockingbird, Samuel Johnson’s dictionary, and even Chris Nolan’s screenplay to Memento! But I agree with her by saying The Great Gatsby is on that list too, if not at the very top.
