I do not own this book, but I'm listening to it as an audio book.
- On more than one occasion Fitzgerald wrote a line that impressed me with the word play.
- For a fair amount of the book, I was a bit bored. Rich people doing rich things is exciting at first, but it quickly becomes dull. In fact, a lot of the book seems to be about how boring life can be for rich people who have nothing to do but play all day.
