A review of this — 6 years ago
I disliked the first part of this novel, feeling it was disjointed and overpopulated with characters I didn’t understand or wish to understand. However, I was pleasantly surprised to read the second two acts. The writing felt much more organic, which makes sense after I read the short biography at the end that told of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s own alcoholism and Zelda’s sanitorium stays. For anyone reading this and thinking of giving up, keep going – you might actually find yourself caring about the outcome of Nicole and Dick’s relationship.
