My rating: 3 of 5 stars
In brief: I liked this book, but there was a period in the middle where I found Gloria in particular very tiresome. And by the end, I disliked both the main characters. If you want to read a story about the emptiness of life led by the vainglorious, selfish, and idle, this is the book for you. It is, however, like all of Fitzgerald’s work, exquisitely written and maintains verisimilitude throughout. That’s how you are kept reading even when you tire of the protagonists.
