The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald

Chapter 1

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

‘Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone,’ he told me, ‘just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had’.

The Great Gatsby is set in 1920’s America just after the horrors of the First World War during a time of re-invention and change. Prohibition, the pursuit of wealth and pleasure, jazz music, fantastic fashion and new dances are the backdrop to the story.
