good english

to read makes our speaking English good.
The Great Gatsby - Matthew J. Bruccoli, F. Scott Fitzgerald Oh my god, I actually enjoyed a book written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Someone hold my hand through this confusing time please.

Just like the other Fitzgeralds I've read, "The Great Gatsby" is full of unlikeable, annoying characters, but the prose in this novel(la) makes up for that. Maybe the fact that it's short helps, too, as one doesn't have what seems like FOREVER to stew about their idiocies.
