Having read The Great Gatsby and not being sure that it is really so great, I went online to see if I could find out more about it and found this Reader’s Guide on Amazon. It is really designed for someone who is studying American literature but I thought it might be useful in pointing out important aspects of the novel I might have missed.
Indeed there were parts of the book that I had overlooked or not considered vital to the plot but overall I think I got the essence of the story. It did not encourage me to go back and read it again but I think it can be valuable viewing such a guide to see if there really are ingredients there that persuade people it is a major literary work. There are many other guides available if you care to search for them and this example is worth looking at.
