The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald This was another one of those books that was assigned to me by my English Teacher, because otherwise I never would have read it. When it was first given to me, I figured I wouldn't like this book. But I was wrong. I really did like this book. In the very beginning I was drawn in and was actually enjoying it, and then during the middle-ending of the book, I wasn't quite as into it. But by the very last line, I realized what a good book it was. I definitely recommend this book to everyone, (and now I am about to sound like my English teacher) because it really is a good piece of literature you need to have to read. :)
