Fun time Facts – F. Scott Fitzgerald

the-great-gatsby-book-coverIndie YA Books spotlights F. Scott Fitzgerald. As mentions his most popular novel is The Great Gatsby and wouldn’t Scott be surprised to learn it is one of the books most high schools have the book as a required reading along with The Giver?

It is terrible he died of a heart attack at such a young age, 44 years old. Who knows how many more wonderful books he could have written.

The Great Gatsby is considered a classic, a timeless story readers will enjoy for centuries to come. If you haven’t read the novel, I do recommend you pick up the book and give it a try. You won’t regret it.

Having seen both makes of the movie, although Leonardo DiCaprio did an excellent job with the character, the older script is better and I do recommend you see the movie with Robert Redford and Mia Farrow.
