The Great Gatsby (Annotated and Illustrated)
Written By: ,
Date: January 2021
Duration: 6 hours 38 minutes
There is perhaps no greater American novel than The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Presented here for the first time with essays collected by Bookquarium editors, and one short story 'in the universe of The Great Gatsby,' this audiobook provides additional context for understanding and appreciating this classic story.
The story itself has been called the 'chronicle of the jazz age,' and presaged the looming Great Depression that followed the 'roaring '20s' in America. It has been adapted into no less than 5 motion pictures (one from the silent-picture era has been lost to history, unfortunately.)
