Waiting for minimum critic reviews


At the end of World War I, the US enjoyed the "roaring 20's," a period of unprecedented prosperity marred by corruption, bootlegging and the carelessness of the very rich. Enter Nick Carraway, the narrator of Jay Gatsby's tragic history with which Fitzgerald exposes the hypocrisy of the American Dream while also espousing the richness of the human condition and the value of ideals.
