The Great Fitzgerald

This blog is generally devoted to young adult lit and I prefer to keep it that way, but recently I've been really enjoying the literature I've had to read for school. Last year, it was about 50/50, where I enjoyed some and despised others, but there were never any that I really loved.

Then we were assigned The Great Gatsby and a few short stories of Fitzgerald. It was love at first page. I could spend hours rereading his gorgeous prose and analyzing all the intricacies of his writing. The Great Gatsby was fantastic, and I love the short stories of his I've read even more - "Winter Dreams" and "Bernice Bobs Her Hair".

What literature have you been assigned in school that you ended up loving... or hating? Do you enjoy Fitzgerald? And if you do, any particular suggestions?

This is still one of my all time favorite books. If you don't include Harry Potter, I've probably read this book more than any other book. It's been about a year and a half since my last read, so I think it's time I picked it up again. I love my copy. It's completely bent out of shape and waterlogged and generally just worn down in a wonderful way.

Gatsby is GREAT. One of our faves -- Kristan's laptop is even named Gatsby in its honor. :) If you like Fitzgerald, definitely check out Franny and Zooey.
