Drumroll please….it’s the final day of the book meme 😦 Which means I’m a week away from classes starting back up and I’m back to being a hermit. But back to the task at hand. Yes, The Great Gatsby is by far my favorite book of all time. No question. I read this book in the 11th grade and never looked back. The 20’s have always been my favorite time period. The fashions, the trends, the music, the parties, did I mention the fashion? I like to think I was a flapper in a previous life. This book is severely romantic and classic. I love everything about it. Especially the relationship between Gatsby and Daisy. And especially Gatsby. He’s that true classic gentleman that every woman could only dream of having in their arms. I remember thinking Daisy was the craziest woman in the world for letting go of that and I really disliked her throughout the majority of the book. I mean who doesn’t want a love like that? Forget Edward and Bella. And then I saw the movie and knew Robert Redford was the new man of my dreams. This book encompasses the generation that was the roaring 20’s and I can never get enough of it. I want my housewarming party to be a Gatsby party and I want to have a 20’s vibe to my wedding. This book has not only inspired me and taught me a lot about literature, but it’s given me a better sense of history and a much greater appreciation for the classic.
