Why I only gave it wishy-washy — 6 years ago
I suppose I’ll just grudgingly say it’s worth reading if only to savor Fitzgerald’s use of language. He truly is masterful at painting a picture and tenderly caressing a phrase. But the plot CRAWLS until about midway through, then it explodes like mishandled nitroglycerin at the denoument.
Probably worth reading once, but I shan’t do it again :/
