The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The classic, a very sad tale. I've watched the movie version first before I have read the book. And I have already stumbled upon so many awesome reviews about this book. A lot of people even considered this as one of their favorites. But for me? Not quite so. Honestly, I like its movie version more than I liked the original text. I don't know why. Maybe because Leonardo di Caprio and Tobey Maguire portrayed the characters so well to the point that maybe I expected too much from the book. However, I really appreciated Fitzgerald's beautiful prose and his gift of describing things/scenes. Too many metaphors and symbolisms. I still prefer the movie though. How about you?
