Book Description

Jan. 15 2008

Nicki Greenberg, with her bold illustrative style, retells F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic The Great Gatsby in a brilliant, innovative graphic novel. In the exquisitely realized setting of 1920s New York, a throng of fantastical creatures play out the drama, the wry humour, and the tragedy of the novel. Nicki Greenberg is reverently faithful to the plot, mood, and characterization of the original and brings to life the glitter, the melancholy, and the grand and crumpled dreams of Fitzgerald's unforgettable characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!!! Oct. 7 2013
This graphic novel adaptation of fsf's The Great Gatsby is simply superb. The characters although not human reflect fitzgerald's text beautifully. I think my favourite is Daisy - so helplessly gentle - just as she has been illustrated. Nick Carraway also is superb as is Gatsby the mysterious seahorse. Loved it and immediately purchased her adaptation of Hamlet -Wow !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Aug. 5 2010

A wonderful adaptation to the novel. I was pleasantly surprised and you will be too! The illustrations are clever... for the characters are not human .... but you truly get an insight into the lives, the time, and the personalities .... and it makes you think twice about about the original book and interpret it in a whole new way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really cool graphic adaptation March 17 2011
By E. Sitrin - Published on Amazon.com
I hate the original Great Gatsby, BUT I've had to teach it to high school English classes a couple times. This graphic adaptation makes it soooooooo much more interesting! I used it to teach lessons about characterization and visualizing when you read. My students and I both love it! The drawings are unique and eery-beautiful. Like I said, I have no special love for Gatsby, but I give 5 stars to Greenberg for her creativity!
