I just finished rereading this book. Even though it was my third time reading it, it felt like the first.
I last read The Great Gatsby about 10 years ago. While I remembered the main gist of it, I had forgotten so many of the details. I also had forgotten how at least once every page or two the most amazing quote or piece of wisdom can be found.
I have always known that this book was deserving of it's exceptional praise but before last week, I don't think I could have told you why.
Now I can tell you why. I also want to fly back to Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio and sit in on an English class that is discussing this book.
Can we just discuss Daisy for a minute? She was so selfish. And Gatsby? God, the things you do for love...or at least when you're in love with an idea of someone.
Rereading The Great Gatsby makes me want to go back and reread all my old faves. The Sun Also Rises is next on my reread list.
Have you ever reread a book and taken so much more away from it than you did the first time around?
