Über dieses Hörbuch

Ein Klassiker der Moderne - in einer brillanten Neuübersetzung
Die Geschichte von Jay Gatsby, einem einsamen reichen Geschäftsmann, der seiner längst verlorenen Liebe nachjagt, wurde zu einem der größten Klassiker der amerikanischen Literatur. Der Roman aus dem Jahr 1925 erzählt von der Genusssucht und Langeweile der Roaring Twenties und der Sinnlosigkeit des mondänen Lebens. F. Scott Fitzgerald beschreibt auf einzigartige und authentische Weise sowohl ein Stück Zeitgeschichte als auch menschliche Tragödien. Die schlichte und zugleich poetische Sprache des Romans ist in dieser Neuübersetzung perfekt getroffen.

Der große Gatsby (Filmausgabe)
Autor

F. Scott Fitzgerald

Francis Scott Fitzgerald (1896, St. Paul, Minnesota-1940, Hollywood, California) creó uno de los mitos de la literatura del siglo XX, el gran Gatsby, y contribuyó de un modo fundamental a la invención de su época. Su primera novela, A este lado del paraíso (1920), narró la educación sentimental de su generación, y sus cuentos inventaron la Edad del Jazz y configuraron las emociones y la imaginería de los años veinte. Hermosos y malditos (1922) adivinó el fin de la fiesta inagotable («la mayor orgía de la historia», según el propio Fitzgerald) y lo preparó para escribir El gran Gatsby (1925). Pasó por Hollywood, a la busca de dinero en el nuevo paraíso cinematográfico, y fracasó. La Depresión económica de 1929 la vivió como depresión y quiebra personal: Suave es la noche (1934), su cuarta novela, volvió a demostrar la extraordinaria capacidad de Fitzgerald para sentir y contar la compenetración indisoluble entre los grandes hechos históricos y la historia íntima de los individuos. En diciembre de 1933 su mujer, Zelda Sayre, había sido internada en una clínica psiquiá­trica. En 1937 Fitzgerald volvió a Hollywood como guionista. Su nombre sólo aparecería en los créditos de una película sonora: Tres camaradas, y por bebedor fue despedido de su último trabajo en Holly­wood, donde murió de un ataque al corazón. Su novela final, inacabada, El último magnate, hablaba de la desilusión de Hollywood. T. S. Eliot había juzgado así El gran Gatsby: «Me parece el primer paso que da la ficción americana desde Henry James.»

    Admittedly not a bad book, but oh! I just want to slap everyone upside the head - some repeatedly.

    No idea. I enjoyed it from start to finish.

    It’s great, if you want to be slapped in the face with symbolism so glaringly obvious that comes off as patronizing, shallow, overly-simplistic, and trite. I found absolutely nothing interesting or redeeming about this book. I honestly have no idea why it’s considered so great. It’s certainly not an example of symbolism done right. It’s an example of symbolism so obvious it’s impossible to miss.

    I didn't like this book when I first read it in high school. Twenty years later, the book makes sense. It's understandable. And it's amazing.

    I can relate to the characters: the human foibles and weaknesses, the passions that drive people to become victim to a dream, and the ruthlessness of people who have or don't have money.

    What a difference a book can make in the expanse of twenty years...

    Well it's a classic for a reason, no need to review just let me say that if you haven't read it you really should just to see what a great writer Fitzgerald was. The movie was good but you miss the language that Fitzgerald uses to tell the story. Also really timely as we see rich folks doing whatever pleases them no matter the cost.

    I first found the language superfluous, but after a bit found it to be lovely. =P I'll have to watch the Redford and DiCaprio versions now that I've read it.

    Poignant. Beautiful language. I can see why it's a classic. A surprising story. I don't know how I hadn't read it before.

    I went into this with really low expectations based on what a lot of people told me about the book, but it wasn't as bad as I was led to believe. It wasn't amazing either, but it was ok.

    I never got into this book...perhaps I read it too late. Even a dapper young Robert Redford couldn't sway me. Eh.

    First part was very slow for me.
    It got interesting when he visited his cousin.
    Wanna know why?
    Read it yourself.

    Each time I read this, I wonder why it's a classic, but then again, it is a complicated plot with believable characters and the setting seems a part of the story. Yet???

    I had read this book many years ago but when I saw it was available as an audiobook download from my public library I thought it was worth a listen. I enjoyed it more this time around than the first time. Perhaps I've become more receptive to Fitzgerald's writing or perhaps the audio presentation suited the format better. I would recommend this audio verson whether you are a Fitzgerald fan or not or just never read any of his works.The story is told by Nick Carroway, a young man working in Manhattan but living on Long Island. His next door neighbour is the wealthy Jay Gatsby. Nick's cousin Daisy Buchanan and her husband Tom also live on Long Island. Daisy invites Nick to dinner where he meets Daisy's friend, Jordan Baker. Jordan tells him that Tom has a mistress who phones him at home during the dinner. Nick gets a chance to meet the mistress, Myrtle, and attends a party in New York with Tom and Myrtle. He then gets invited to a party at Gatsby's mansion and is soon hobnobbing with Gatsby. He learns that Gatsby and Daisy fell in love before the war but Gatsby was poor then. He went to fight in Europe and Daisy married Tom Buchanan. Now that Gatsby is rich he hopes to convince Daisy to leave Tom and he talks Nick into setting up a reunion. The resulting affair gives Gatsby hope that Daisy will leave Tom but when Tom confronts them Daisy won't choose between them. While driving back to Long Island Gatsby's car hits Myrtle, killing her instantly. When Nick finds Gatsby later that night he learns that it was Daisy driving but Gatsby is going to take the blame. If he thinks that this will cause Daisy to choose him he is about to be disappointed because Daisy and Tom leave town to return to the Midwest. Gatsby is killed by Myrtle's husband and none of the people who came to his parties can be bothered to attend his funeral.As a portrayal of the 1920s this book is really an historical novel now although, of course, it was contemporary at the time it was written. Perhaps that is why the book gained in popularity many years after it was first published in 1925. When Fitzgerald died in 1940 he believed that he was ultimately unsuccessful as a novelist but he is now read widely. This particular book has been adapted for stage and screen numerous times.

    “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 any one," he told me, "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had.”I read this in high school, and then again in college, and saw the movie with Leonardo DiCaprio when it came out, and here are the only things I remembered before picking up this book:- a flashing green light- creepy eyes- mint julepsWhen I saw this new audiobook version, I decided this classic deserved another reread, specifically for the narrator, Samwise Gamgee - I mean, Sean Astin - as I received a copy of this audiobook from NetGalley. Overall, I liked his voice and style. Sean Astin was not a bad narrator. I liked his portrayal of Nick Carroway, the "guy-next-door". He added this sincerity to Nick's voice that was reminiscent of Sam in LOTR. While I overall liked his narration style, sometimes the delivery felt a little stilted, and it did detract from the story a bit.Even though the story is nearly 100 years old, it holds up relatively well, at least in overall message -- the desire to achieve the American dream. Rereading the audiobook was a nice change, though part of me wanted to reread a physical copy so I could notate all of the great quotes and symbolism like I was in tenth-grade English class again...Thank you to NetGalley and Dreamscape Media for a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.

    I first read this book when I was 12 and have re-read it once a year every year since then, so I calculate that I have read it about three dozen times. I never get tired of it; the writing is superb. To me, it is simply the tale of the events of one summer in the 1920's, told from the viewpoint of Nick Carraway. This book has a few very wise observations on human nature. My favorite sub-theme in this novel is the transplanted-Midwesterner-in-New York; Carraway mentions that Tom, Daisy, Jordon, Gatsby and himself have all migrated from the great heartland. I can't help but thinking that Fitzgerald thought that this was a key factor for all the characters and their actions and reactions. After Memorial Day (this book is a summertime book, I can't read it in the winter) I will track this book down, get it out and enjoy it again.

    I think The Great Gatsby is an amazing book. I put off reading it for a long time since I did not enjoy the movie with DiCaprio so much and due to my complete unfamiliarity with 20th-century American literature, I guess.

    I found Fitzgeralds work extremely compelling, very dense and written in beautiful prose. I was especially amazed to find dialogue descriptions that were almost - dare I say it? - Dostoyevskian in style and pace.

    The description of the early 20th century (upper class) life in New York was also fun to read and compare with the similar time period from Agatha Christies' English backdrops.

    A wonderful read on so many levels, greatly recommended!

    I remember reading this in High School and from memory I remember that it was a pretty good book. It is definitely a classic and people should read it.

    After having read this back in high school, I bought this and read it again before the movie came out. I quite enjoyed the book. If you go into it thinking that this is a story of 1920's success and excess, you'll not be disappointed by the shallow, self-centered characters. By shallow, I don't mean they weren't written well, I mean they were shallow people. This really is a great people study story and an interesting one.
