The Original Manuscript The Great Gatsby Audiobook

The Original Manuscript The Great Gatsby

Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald Narrator: Geoffrey Giuliano And The Icon Ensemble Release Date: May 2021

The Great Gatsby is a 1925 novel by American writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. Set in the Jazz Age on Long Island, the novel depicts narrator Nick Carraway's interactions with mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby and Gatsby's obsession to reunite with his former lover, Daisy Buchanan. A youthful romance Fitzgerald had with socialite Ginevra King, and the riotous parties he attended on Long Island's North Shore in 1922 inspired the novel. Following a move to the French Riviera, he completed a rough draft in 1924. He submitted the draft to editor Maxwell Perkins, who persuaded Fitzgerald to revise the work over the following winter. After his revisions, Fitzgerald was satisfied with the text, but remained ambivalent about the book's title and considered several alternatives. After its publication by Scribner's in April 1925, The Great Gatsby received generally favorable reviews, although some literary critics believed it did not hold up to Fitzgerald's previous efforts and signaled the end of the author's literary achievements. Despite the warm critical reception, Gatsby was a commercial failure. The book sold fewer than 20,000 copies by October, and Fitzgerald's hopes of a monetary windfall from the novel were unrealized. When the author died in 1940, he believed himself to be a failure and his work forgotten. After his death, the novel faced a critical and scholarly re-examination amid World War II, and it soon became a core part of most American high school curricula and a focus of American popular culture. Numerous stage and film adaptations followed in the subsequent decades. Gatsby continues to attract popular and scholarly attention. The novel was most recently adapted to film in 2013 by director Baz Luhrmann, while contemporary scholars emphasize the novel's treatment of social class, inherited wealth compared to those who are self-made, race, environmentalism, and its cynical attitude towards the American dream.

The Great Gatsby Audiobook

The Great Gatsby

Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald Narrator: Jason Keller Release Date: March 2021

Arguably the greatest American novel of the 20th century, Fitzgerald’s simple story of lost love has captivated readers, filmmakers and fellow writers for generations. Narrator Nick Carraway tells the story of his neighbour Jay Gatsby, whose parties at his Long Island mansion are as lavish as his past is mysterious. Yet Gatsby cares only for one of his guests: his lost love Daisy Buchanan, now married and living across the bay. In Fitzgerald’s hands, this deceptively simple story becomes a perfect work of art, told in hauntingly beautiful prose. On its first publication in 1925, The Great Gatsby was largely dismissed as a light satire on Jazz Age follies. Today, it is acknowledged as a masterpiece: a love story, an exploration of the American dream, and arguably the greatest American novel of the 20th century.

The Great Gatsby

Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald Narrator: Jonathan Waters Release Date: February 2021

“In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since. 'Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,' he told me, 'just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had.” In one of the most beloved works of 20th century literature, readers step into the decadent but tumultuous life of Nick Carraway, a young man looking to make his way in the bustling New York City business world. He soon meets Gatsby, his mysterious neighbor known for throwing extravagant galas in his gilded home. Jay Gatsby is a man of extravagant taste and has great wealth, but only wants what he can’t have – Daisy Buchanan, a flighty debutante married to an unfaithful husband. What ensues is both a beautiful, heartbreaking story of love and desire, but also a critical examination of the values and vices of Jazz Age New York City. The extravagance, carelessness and greed of society give the characters all the thrills and adventure they could ask for, but are ultimately the cause of their downfall. Despite The Great Gatsby initially being considered a failure, it was re-discovered in the 1940s, and has become a staple of American literature. Regarded as one of the most important works of the modernist literary movement, and is F. Scott Fitzgerald’s most well-known novel. It has been adapted countless times for nearly every creative medium, and is commonly referred to as “the Great American novel.”

The Great Gatsby - Unabridged

Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald Narrator: Kevin Theis Release Date: January 2021

Often described as the Great American Novel, 'The Great Gatsby' - F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece of the Jazz Age - has become one of the most beloved and revered books of the 20th Century. Narrated by the enigmatic Nick Carraway, the story takes place in the well-to-do section of Long Island, New York, where socialites and millionaires cavort about on their yachts and hydroplanes, oblivious to the day-to-day drudgery of the working class drones they motor past each day. Nick, renting a small cottage for the summer, is drawn into the social circle of his next-door neighbor, the handsome and mysterious Jay Gatsby. As he grows closer to Gatsby, Nick comes to learn that the reclusive young millionaire is pining for, and hoping to reclaim, his old flame Daisy Buchanan, who lives directly across the bay with her abrasive and unfaithful husband Tom. Set amid wild, Jazz Age parties, flowing champagne, speedy sports cars and dark, hidden secrets, 'The Great Gatsby' has earned a well-deserved place in the canon of American literature. At once a celebration of the free-spirited and brightly-lit era of the Roaring Twenties and a penetrating examination of the heartlessness of its inhabitants, 'Gatsby' is one of the most well-read and analyzed novels in history and the subject of numerous adaptations for the stage and screen.
