Then, I hear that Baz Lurhmann has a new film coming out and it's a remake of The Great Gatsby. I was torn because I have this memory of completely despising the book, but I love Baz Luhrmann movies. I decided I might as well watch it. Then recently the soundtrack came out and I quite enjoy the direction it seems this movie will go in.
Anyways, so I started re-reading The Great Gatsby and strange because thus far I am actually enjoying it. I am only about a chapter into it, but I find myself very much enjoying the voice. This whole story is just a friendly reminder that if you didn't like a book in high school and it's been a fair handful of years, you might want to try it again because it might surprise you (it also might still just be terrible). So if you haven't already watched this movie and it's been awhile since you read the book and didn't like it. Maybe you should give it another shot.
