Leading Fitzgerald scholar James L. West III agrees. He calls The Great Gatsby "a national scripture. It embodies the American spirit, the American will to reinvent oneself. West says it is no coincidence that The Great Gatsby is probably the American novel most often taught in the rest of the world. He captured and distilled the essence of the American spirit. Yet Gatsby also explores the dream's destructive power. The Great Gatsby also captures money's power to corrupt, to let the rich escape from the consequences of their actions.
The romance of the Roaring '20s. Fitzgerald was the poet laureate of what he named "The Jazz Age," the most raucous, gaudy era in U. It was flappers, cars, sex, movies, gangsters, celebrities, a stock market minting money, everything awash in illegal booze. The wildest parties and bad behavior among the rich and famous today have nothing on the you-only-live-once hedonism depicted in The Great Gatsby. It remains relevant. West, an English literature professor at Pennsylvania State University, has been teaching the book to college students for decades.
He marvels how "it never seems to lose its modernity; it has that kind of staying power. One reason: It offers complicated characters who can be interpreted in fresh ways for new readers. Could Gatsby — the other, the outsider — actually be a black man? Often dismissed as a selfish ditz, is Daisy victimized by a society that offers her no career path except marriage to big bucks?
At a recent press conference, the actor who plays Gatsby noted its relevancy today. Crazy love. What makes Gatsby magical is his motivation. I have to admit he made me want to knock his head off, because he assumes most of the novel instead of just speaking up and clearing the air. Bryn is just as bad, but I can forgive her since he was giving off some mixed up signals. I have to admit the scenes with Alex and Bryn are amazing, you can tell Alex is not a Dominate, but more of an attentive lover.
I was absolutely giddy when they finally hashed it out with each other and cleared the air. The of why of it happening I would talk about. I have to say, I was hopping for a different ending. But Lizzie had other plans for her characters and no matter what it worked out alright for all of them.
I enjoyed this book and even though I hopped for a different ending I was still happy with it all around. This is a must read in my honest opinion and I hope for a novella maybe of the couple and maybe a book for Dan! The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic. Overall this was a great story.
I liked it even if it ended much differently than I expected it too. I was surprised at the ending because I did not see it coming. I loved that I was kept on my toes throughout the book. She is despite to save the farm from being foreclosed upon after refinancing to save her loser ex-husband. She had a job working for Brent Thomas, but he was holding her pay. She finally decides to rent the hunting cabin located on the property to cousins Alex and Dan Cannon. A mutual friend has asked if she would be interested in helping Dan out with a problem for a little extra money.
In desperate need she agrees. Alex Cannon is worried sick about his cousin Dan who is more like a brother to him. Dan is drowning his personal problems in pills and alcohol. After discussing the problem with a friend, it is suggested Dan may need to partake in some BDSM and domination to help him work through his issues and Bryn McClure is a willing submissive. Bryn loves the way Dan dominates her but he is a troubled man full of anger. Can Bryn ever fall for him? What about Dan? How do they all fit together and how can this work?
This book is HOT. It is full of sex, kink and emotions. I give this book 4 hands down your pants especially the last chapter! This is a must read for erotica fans. Looking forward to the next one. I have read lots of steamy.
Lots of dirty. Lots stuff that would make others blush, but not me. No sirree bob. I am not easy shocked. Well, congrats Ms Ashworth. I was not totally shocked but certainly it took me to an Oh My Moment. A did I really just read that? So she decides to advertise that she is opening her farm to hunters. She has the cabin for them to stay in, she loves to cook, and has lots of land.
Its like a Bed, Breakfast and Bambi. Dan has had a terrible breakup with his wife. She cheated on him with his clients and co-workers. Dan is depressed. His cousin and business partner, Alex decides that a trip to the country is just what Dan needs to bring himself out of his funk.

Thats funk. Not the other word. Oh, and the trip to the country…. Bryn is available for submission and discipline.

Are there small business loans available? How do you settle on that combination of services? No golf course nearby…oh well…they can just spank me. Bryn is attracted to Dan but totally over the moon for Alex. But Alex is worried about his cousin and wants the trip to be about Dan.
