“That's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.“
I am very fond of Gatsby, and I feel that Jillian Cantor did it justice and creatively explained many questions. It was fascinating seeing Cantor's views on how the relationship with Daisy and Gatsby started and ended, how Jordan started with her career, and even Myrtle's life before Buchanan. Then flipping to the investigation of what really happened the day Gatsby died

For someone who really dislikes The Great Gatsby, I keep buying retellings.
STILL catching up my blog posts… I finished this beauty last week and absolutely loved it. A retelling of The Great Gatsby that (I think) will appeal to readers who love the original and to those who have never read it, but like historical fiction/mystery.

I liked how the characters were fleshed out in this book. I saw the characters differently than I think The Great Gatsby portrayed them. I loved how it resolved. I was annoyed with the women like I was in Gatsby but I also have to remind myself different time period. (Not my dog. Just dog sitting)
