One of Fitzgerald's Finist!

As a lover of classic American literature I was completely engrossed with this novel. Not only is it a in interesting insight into the mind of F. Scott but it also adds another element to the understanding of his personal life with Miss Zelda Sayre. This wonderful novel is a MUST for anyone who has read and enjoyed The Great Gatsby. Fitzgerald creates believable characters and the foundation to personally connect with them on a deeper level. This not only assists in a greater understanding of his literature but more importantly, a greater understanding in the human condition.
