"The Great Gatsby" takes us on a journey to New York in 1922, to the so-called jazz era. The pages almost come alive with the lively clicking of high heels, humming of car engines and the sound of jazz music. Country fellow Nick quickly becomes dazzled by the false glamour of his new neighbourhood, but soon realizes that the most important things in life cannot be bought.
Jay Gatsby is a cult hero of world literature, a shallow man with deep pockets living the American Dream. Splendour and glamorous parties hide an extremely lonely man stuck in his own past. Obsessed with the unrequited love of his youth, he builds a whole new world full of glitz, glamour and debauchery, which he uses to create a trap for his fragile prey - the beautiful Daisy.
The greatest American novel of the 20th century, as it is often called, brings something wonderful in each of its layers, yet something so simple and universal that it can be easily understood and accepted by any era.
