The Great Gatsby online book discussion

Care to join in an online book discussion on The Great Gatsby?

Beginning the week of 10 September, this site will host a discussion on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 classic of American Literature. Composed of only nine chapters, Gatsby is the perfect book discussion novel for the busy reader.

Leave a comment if you’re interested in participating and then dust off that copy you read in school, stop by a great second-hand store, order online or download to your favorite e-reader.

Come Christmas 2012, er, Summer 2013 when the latest film adaptation is released, there will be but two types of people: those who’ve recently read Gatsby and those who’ve not. Earn your right to be one of the smug, smart set when everyone is discussing a remake. 🙂

    • Hi Jody! Thanks for responding. I don’t know if you’ve heard, but the film has been pushed back to some as yet unspecified time during Summer 2013. After revisiting the novel, I think many of us will be wondering what about the classic lends itself to 3D. 🙂

  1. I’m down for this since I never read Gatsby, but I’m more interested in reading the novelization of the upcoming film. Collectors, don’t forget to pick up your “Now A Major Motion Picture” Edition!

  2. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Gatsby. So they are doing a movie then? I went through the book again earlier this year–I actually listened to it on Audible–so I’m relatively prepped for a discussion. Sooooooooo smooth. A book that very much reminds me of the Great Gatsby which I might like almost just as well is the Mysteries of Pittsburgh by Michael Chabon, which I recommend to any Fitzgerald fan who hasn’t already read it. Thanks for the invite Mark! Get in touch with me if you need anything, brutha.
