Summary

A fresh take on classic characters, Daisy gives listeners insight into Daisy Buchanan's viewpoint of the events of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. While simultaneously remaining true to the original and adding new information, Sternberg weaves Daisy's perspective and Nick Carraway's account together, correcting what Daisy knows is inaccurate from her cousin's novel. 

Sternberg pulls listeners in from the first minute, and while the outcome of Daisy and Gatsby's affair is universally known, listeners still cannot help but root for the pair. 

As the novel progresses, the tension in Daisy's love life heightens the stakes, and while it's easy to want to see Daisy and Jay make it work, the listener can also feel Daisy's ambiguous feelings about leaving her husband for Gatsby. 

As the story climaxes, listeners are left feeling as confused as Daisy is in regard to the decisions she needs to make. While there are noticeable changes to the overall story—it is a different perspective, after all—Daisy provides listeners of romantic and/or feminist fiction and fans of The Great Gatsby alike with a satisfying story that is faithful to the original, yet unique in its own right.
