Have you seen the trailers for the new version of The Great Gatsby?
I know it’s been a lot of years, but I really don’t remember the book version of The Great Gatsby being nearly this eye-popping-ly exciting. The music, the cars, the mansions, the parties — this looks big and glamorous, candy-coated and full of adrenaline. I’m pretty much dying to see this now, and I can’t get the music out of my head.
On the other hand, I barely remember the plot details from the book, so I can’t tell at all if this is a faithful adaptation.
So, should I re-read the book? Or just wait and enjoy the glitz of the movie?
