    • Lol – it is a very hefty book!! I have had it sitting on my Kindle for about 2 years now – it is quite a daunting prospect (think it might be even worse with a physical copy). 😉

  1. Gatsby really is one of the best books I’ve ever read. It’s one of the few books that I’ve read that I thought, after closing it “well that was worth all the hype.”

    • Thanks (would be more impressive if I had actually managed to finish it 😉 ). It is a monster of a book though it is pretty readable when you get going. I wish I could read it in the original Russian though because I always feel you lose something in the translation.

      I LOVE your list – nice twist on the original topic and great selections too! 🙂
