Book Notes: "The Beautiful and Damned" by F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Beautiful and DamnedThe Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It makes sense that it was like this in the 20s. No need to feel sorry for the protagonists, but to see the folly of being spoilt - maybe this is the message? Or maybe there is no message at all, just a reflection of the beautiful and the damned. Not sure you can find any solace in being honest and poor, though. FSF always leaves me navel-gazing. I believe his work is much more than a simple depiction of the Jazz Age.
