Summary

An all-new recording of the beloved F. Scott Fitzgerald classic, narrated by actor Tanner Buchanan, star of Cobra Kai and the Netflix film He’s All That. 

Hailed as one of the Great American Novels, The Great Gatsby delves into the dark corners of the Jazz Age to tell a tragic tale of obsession, love, and the gritty underbelly of the American Dream. Through the eyes of unassuming narrator Nick Carraway, the story follows the enigmatic Jay Gatsby as he chases the object of his hopeless desire, the beautiful Daisy Buchanan. 

Years after first meeting Daisy, when he was merely a penniless soldier, Gatsby has remade himself into an eccentric millionaire, throwing lavish parties at his New York mansion every weekend with the hope of enticing the woman of his dreams into his reach. It is through these parties that Nick, Daisy’s cousin, first meets Gatsby and learns of his deep, unrelenting love. When at last Gatsby and the now-married Daisy reunite, the consequences of their illicit affair will reverberate through the lives of everyone around them. 

An illuminating exploration of the deleterious effects of unrequited love, social stigmas, and unchecked capitalism, The Great Gatsby is an elegant yet unforgiving novel that will keep you hooked until the very last word.

Flawlessly read

The narrator really knew how to bring this book to live I have loved every min of it. It’s the first time I’m listening/reading the book thoroughly enjoyed it.

Great listen!

Classic novel, though difficult to relate to/appreciate at times due to the time period, However, terrific narration! Kept me engaged throughout.
