I have joined a bookclub.
My sewing machine broke while I was attempting to turn a painters sheet and a hula hoop into a change room for my market stall.
I have been a little bored and haven't happened accross a good book for a while.
So when a friend of a friend started an online bookclub I jumped at the chance.
We read 'The Great Gatsby"
I have read this before, in highschool, but it never really grabbed me.
It's a quick and easy read.
I am interested to see what the other bookclub members have to say about it.
I am not quite sure what Mr Fitzgerald was trying to get at.
Perhaps "don't be fooled, there are no happy endings" or perhaps this was his version of a happy ending.
Why do they make highschool students read this book?
I might have to read what Wikipedia has to say on the matter.
Have you read 'The Great Gatsby"
What do you think F Scott Fitzgerald was trying to say to everyone?
