The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald -------SPOILER ALERT-------

I took my time reading this the 2nd time around and although my star rating for it stayed the same at 3 starts, I did enjoy it more. I lingered over the very first party where we're introduced to Gatsby, pictured the outfits they were liable to be wearing, the dancing, smoking and gossiping as the champagne flowed freely. This felt like a very mild, relaxing read. Even the hypocrisy, delusions and murder at the end didn't bring me out of my 1920s haze. I enjoyed my moment of being immersed in the 'Roaring Twenties.'
