“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
I’m quite ashamed to say how long it took me to read this. But, what, a, book. The writing is just phenomenal. It’s an easy and short read too, making it likely I’ll dip in and out of it when I need a bit of comforting.
Sometimes, I’ve gone into classics like this with either skepticism or high expectations but The Great Gatsby proved exactly why it has a place on the shelf of literary masterpieces. All of the characters are knitted with complexity and it’s quite a breath of fresh air. I love books that don’t shy away from deep meaning and this is one not to be missed.
