Scott  Fitzgerald. It was a compulsory reading for college last year and I must admit it took me longer than I expected to read it. When I was done, I didn’t care for the story but, once the teacher explained all the symbols and I got to relate it to Fitzgerald’s real life relationship with Zelda, it quickly became one of my favourite stories. I think there is something special (and romantic) about Daisy in general, yet she is one of the most cruel characters I’ve ever known.

I’m not a fan of re-reading but I think The Great Gatsby is one of those novels that improve as you grow up.
