Turn of the 20th century story telling I didn't know it was to be collection, of stories, but I loved it. Had to reacquaint myself with the jargon - some long ago now forbidden - but it was nice to be reintroduced to a time when life seemed quieter. Glad to have read it . . . it is a treasure to behold.
GreatGreat collection of stories from Fitzgerald. If you're looking for more Fitzgerald, this is a great place to start. Enjoyable stories that put you in another time and give you a variety of pictures of life.
A Reformed Skeptic At first I was skeptical bc I couldn't stand Fitzgerald's run-on sentence structure or make sense of some story endings. But they became vernacular poetry and singularly gorgeous! Benedict is one of my fav stories now.
Short story collection They get pretty diverse! My favorite though is easily the first one "The Offshore Pirate" but all through the book is captivating, descriptive language that creates a story painted by words.
Flappers and Philosophers A collage of stories featuring different facets of life in an age gone by. I adored reading this book and couldn't put it down. I am looking forward to my next foray with F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Well told stories I have read a lot of his books and these stories are just as good as his other works. I just did not like his descriptions of black people but then i realized he would have hardly have known anyone of color considering the time period these were written it. I would recommed everyone to read at least something by Fitzgerald.
