The Great Gatsby

The most enjoyable part of this reading experience was that I bought it in a train station in Germany, and so it's a 'learn english' edition. Pocket sized, and with copious footnotes in german, explaining uncommon words or idioms. Super fun to test my German that way, and I LOVE the tiny pocket size of these Reclam editions. They're like 4" x 5".

I always had the suspicion that I didn't care for Fitzgerald - I have very little affinity with roaring twenties new england - and this confirmed it! It's obviously a Good American Novel, but... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
