The Great Gatsby

One of the most lyrically beautiful books I’ve read in a long time. Every character, moment and emotion is exquisitely portrayed and replete with descriptive grace-notes that immerse the reader in the period and bring warmth and character to what is a relatively uncomplicated story. The inimitable Gatsby remains a mystery until the end, mixing a child-like wonder and naivety with sometimes ruthless and sinister behaviour. Rightly judged a classic.
