Book Notes: "This Side of Paradise" by F. Scott Fitzgerald

This Side of ParadiseThis Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was somewhat struck by the use of a play format for heavy dialogue, and the various long poems, interspersed with a two-book structure (and interlude) and a complex structure of interwoven characters and time-shifts. Well worth the read and I can only imagine the stir it would have caused in 1920. I can only wonder what the original drat of this novel would have been line and I remain bewildered by the life experience FSF had at such a very young age.
