My Favorite Book: “The Great Gatsby”

Oh the great Great Gatsby. I’m not much one for sitting down and reading for hours, as I used to be when I was younger, but one book, in particular, still has a special place in my heart after reading. This is the first and only book that I’ve felt the need to reread. From the social commentaries, to the drama surrounding the will they, won’t they dynamic between Daisy and Gatsby, to the odd feeling of nostalgia from reminiscing on a time not even my grandparents experienced. Gatsby had the ability to allow as much creative liberty into the world building aspect of it all. I never seem to fail to immediately think of this novel whenever the question, “what’s your favorite book” is posed.
