The Great Gatsby

“In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over my mind ever since.” “Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had that advantageous that you’ve had.
From the Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

This is the opening paragraph of this book. I am half way through this book and I think I am just about to understand what the story is all about. The writing style cannot be more elegant and sophisticated. So far I have been enjoying this book. I will write more about this book when I finish reading it.
