Probably my all time favorite novel. I know alot of people dislike it because they were forced to read it for school, but go back and read it when you dont have to write a paper on it. I have probably read it 10 times, since its such a short and easy read, and it gets better every time. Its the beginning of transgressional fiction and Fitzgerald writes with such brittle language that no matter whats happening in the novel, you feel on edge.
While I do appreciate Fitzgerald's short stories as superior in both prose and in some cases content, Gatsby just gets me every time. Plus the cover art kicks all kinds of ass.
Agreed, definately one of my favorites along with "The Sun Also Rises"
Sig by the sigmaster BoneKrusher. Each one is a masterpiece

I asked my friend if he had any good books and he lent me the book "Daniel X", not exactly the kinda book I was expecting. Did anyone read it? It looks kinda corny to me but I'll feel like a douche if I give it back to him without reading it, especially after acting mildly interested when he gave it to me.
Haven't read that book, but I've read some interesting things about it and the author's theories. Very interesting indeed.
Anyone had a chance to look at Stephen King's new novel yet?
There is a lot of really interesting stuff: what real estate agents and the KKK have in common, why crack dealers are like McDonalds and swimming pools are more dangerous than guns. What is great about the book is it challenges common wisdom on many topics and being a contrarian myself I enjoyed it tremendously.
After I finish this I am definitely going to get the sequel:
