The year is 1922, and young Nick Carraway moves to the village of West Egg, where he discovers that his neighbor is the eclectic millionaire Jay Gatsby. As he and Gatsby become acquainted, Nick is thrown into a world full of dazzling parties, unrequited love, and unchecked idealism. Gatsby, surrounded by riches, yearns for the love of a woman who chose another man. Having chosen to move into a mansion close to her home, he stares out at a green light that shines from the end of her dock every night in hopes that she will come to her senses and choose him. Daisy, stuck in a loveless marriage, dreams of what could have been - and gets a taste for it after she is reacquainted with Gatsby through Nick. Considered by critics to be one of the greatest novels ever written, this 1925 masterpiece is a portrait of the Roaring '20s that's full of literary intrigue, resounding metaphors, and decadent glimpses into the glitz and glam of early-20th century America. As relevant today as ever, it offers a cautionary tale of the American dream, warning against the temptation to believe that enough money paired with equal desire can achieve anything - even reverse the deepest regrets.
