THE GREAT GATSBY - F Scott Fitzgerald
I recently studied this for school; although I had read and enjoyed it before I found that after re reading it and analysing the book, the story and writing completely opened up and became even more thrilling than before. I love novels that get better the more you analyse them, in my opinion that’s one of the most important things in a great book. This book was filled with metaphors and motifs as well as an undercurrent of a sinister political message - which is my ideal book. I thoroughly enjoyed scribbling notes and annotations all over the pages - and it inspired me to do this to almost every book I read in order to try and evoke the same enjoyment out of others that I got from this one. Although after studying it for a whole year and reading it probably 5 times I’m not going to pick it up for a while, so not to spoil and get sick of it, I still consider it one of my favourite books.
