My book club friends and I read The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald this month. We are attempting to alternate a new book with a classic book. I remember reading or at least flipping through the pages in high school. I admittedly was more excited about dressing like a 1920s flapper than actually reading the book. Time after time when I picked up The Great Gatsby and read a few pages I would be out like a light! I found that Fitzgerald has a beautiful writing style, but it is just so different than what I am used to reading. That is to say I found the plot moved sloooowly- until the last 3 chapters (which I read the night before book club). Did anyone else find Daisy to be extremely annoying? Have you ever fallen in love with the idea of a person just to find out it isn't reality? Poor Gatsby... I plan to head to the library this week to pick up the movie version because, let's be honest, Robert Redford is HOT!
Have you heard the buzz about a new version of The Great Gatsby coming out next year? It's a pretty strong cast if there is any truth to it!
Also, here's a link to the 1920s style bob I attempted from a YouTube tutorial. I found my dress at the Greenwood Flea Market a few years ago. I just love the drop waist.
