This Blog is Dedicated to our dear friend Karen.
When she left this life she left a hole in our hearts as well as several to be read books.
We, her friends, will read these books for her.
This blog will be a sort of book club for us to post our thoughts and feelings about the stories and feelings we have of Karen while we read.

#71 The Great Gatsby F. Scott. Fitzgerald
This was my first time reading this story and I liked it, but didn't love it. It is very well written. I loved how he shared the death scene, his choice of words, poetic in a way. I saw the movie awhile back and have to say they did a great job with the movie as it went right along with the book.
It's a story about a wealthy man, made his money (not a trust fund baby), started out poor, but wanted to live the life of the wealthy to woo Daisy back. He did everything to try and fit in the crowd of the wealthy but never seemed to quite fit in. You have the life of the east coast during the 20's, the parties, the drinking, the affairs.... it's a good book.
