Crapclassics # 1: The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald

This will be short as the last time I attempted this book was High School and I've worked very hard to repress the experience.

Simply, I don't get why people like this book so much. I kept checking the title wondering if I picked up Gone With the Wind instead because I got the same vibe reading this as I did watching the movie. (Yes, I'm not a fan of the great movie and book; I must be a horrible book lover.)

 

Basically, this book, to me, is about stupid people, making stupid decisions, and ruining their stupid lives and the lives of the stupid people around them. I have no patience for that in real life and in most circumstances, have little interest in subjecting myself to the literary experience of the same.

 

Harsh, I know, but there it is.
