It is a remarkable novel about human desires and weaknesses, and what leads to the eventual downfall. I love the ending,as it is both expected and unexpected.

A beautiful classic. The rise and fall of Anthony and Gloria will have you hooked until the final page.

An absolutely beautiful read. I loved it from beginning to end. I enjoyed it more than Gatsby.

One of the best books I have ever read. Should be required reading for every young adult as a great life lesson.

I love this book. It's definitely my favourite one of F. Scott Fitzgerald. If you like books about the jazz age, this is a must-read.It takes a while to get into the book but by the end you become really attached to the two main characters. And it paints a rather ironic picture of the tragedy that can occur from overindulgence.
