The Great Gatsby

When the going is good, everyone is 'friends' with you. But when the first signs of trouble appear, only the true friends remain. "The Great Gatsby" is a novel by Scott Fitzgerald that mashes friendship, love and betrayal in a story set in America in the 1920s (post the World War-I).

While a lot of novels may cover the above themes, this one narrates a credible story using fictitious location and characters. By the end of the story, one can feel a strong feeling of sympathy for the main character, Gatsby and a disgust at some of the other characters.
