Like all highschool students, I read this book years ago and don’t remember enjoying it as much as I did this time around when I had the choice and no pressure.

The Great Gatsby is an amazing story about a man who rents a house next door to the prestigious  Jay Gatsby, and finds himself swept up in the mystery, charm and trouble that Gatsby causes in his wake.

It’s definitely a story worth reading many times over. You discover new angles, possibilities and even hope that the ending is different although the story would be vastly different and would not mean as much.
