Kindle Edition Verified download. Got this to practice my Spanish. It's a classic no matter the language. Great story and very light reading! It was cool to compare the original with the Portuguese translation. Although the translation is very good in general, in some parts they changed the original meaning. I recommend the excellent audiobook narrated by Humphrey Bower. One person found this helpful.
Hardcover Verified download. A bit pricey for what you get. Nice gift, but a bit overpriced! Excellent book!
Even if you saw the film first, the story holds the reader from the beginning to the end. Kindle Edition. I would not recommend this to anyone who is not fluent in Portuguese. It seemed difficult for me, and much to my surprise the edition included the English version, which I then read.
No wonder I had had difficulty reading it in Portuguese; the writing style is peculiar. See all 7 reviews. site Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.

Nick deduces Daisy was driving when the accident happened.
Nick overhears Daisy accepting Tom's promise to take care of everything, but he does not tell Gatsby. The next day, Gatsby hears the phone ringing and thinks it is Daisy.
Before he can answer it, he is shot and killed by a vengeful George, who then commits suicide. Nick is the only person other than reporters, to attend Gatsby's funeral, as Daisy and Tom are leaving New York. The media paints Gatsby as Myrtle's lover and killer, with this false and negative image of Gatsby's life and death infuriating Nick; at the top of stairs at Gatsby's mansion, he yells at them and kicks the press reporters out of the house.
Disgusted with both the city and its inhabitants, Nick leaves after taking a final walk through Gatsby's deserted mansion and reflecting on Gatsby's ability to hope. In the sanatorium, Nick finishes typing his memoir, titling it The Great Gatsby.
Cast[ edit ] Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby , a famous millionaire who hosts wild parties at his house in the hope that Daisy will show up. Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway , a would-be writer who is also Gatsby's neighbor and friend. He is the narrator of this movie. Development[ edit ] Prior to this version, there had already been an opera and numerous other dramatic adaptations of F. Scott Fitzgerald 's acclaimed novel of the same name.
Luhrmann stated that he planned it to be more up-to-date due to its theme of criticizing the often irresponsible lifestyles of wealthy people. In , it was reported that the film was being set up by Sony Pictures Entertainment  but by , Warner Bros.
Leonardo DiCaprio was cast first, in the title role of Jay Gatsby. Tobey Maguire was cast to play Nick Carraway.
Luhrmann said: "I was privileged to explore the character with some of the world's most talented actresses, each one bringing their own particular interpretation, all of which were legitimate and exciting. However, specific to this particular production of The Great Gatsby, I was thrilled to pick up the phone an hour ago to the young Oscar -nominated British actress Carey Mulligan and say to her: 'Hello, Daisy Buchanan.
Who would Hamlet be today? Same with a Jordan or a Daisy". Healman noted five key changes made in the novel's plot: Nick Carraway is writing from a sanitarium , having checked himself in some time after the summer with Gatsby; he flirts with Jordan Baker but, unlike what happens in the novel, he's "too smitten with Gatsby to notice her"; Gatsby himself makes a grand entrance, whereas in the novel a few hours pass as they talk before Carraway realizes who he is; some of the racism or anti-Semitism has been toned down or removed; finally, Gatsby dies thinking his pursuit of Daisy was successful.
Palm trees had to be digitally removed in post-production to convey a faithfulness to the Long Island setting. Filming began on September 5, , at Fox Studios Australia and finished on December 22, , with additional shots filmed in January Nick's house was located in Centennial Park.
The inspiration for the film version of the Buchanan estate came from Old Westbury Gardens. Objects chosen adhered to a central theme of what the designers saw as classic Long Island. The architecture conjures American Arts and Crafts , with Gustav Stickley -type furnishings inside and an Adirondack -style swing out. Costumes[ edit ] Many apparel designers were approached in collaboration of the film's costumes. The Great Gatsby achieved the iconic s look by altering pieces from the Prada and Miu Miu fashion archives.
Martin also collaborated with Brooks Brothers for the costumes worn by the male cast members and extras. Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada were behind the wardrobe and worked closely together to create pieces with "the European flair that was emerging amongst the aristocratic East Coast crowds in the s". Most prominently, the women were clothed to emphasize their breasts, such as Daisy's push-up bra, in contrast to the flat-chested fashions of the era.
While the book was set in , the movie included fashions from the entire decade of the s and even the s. Many of the fashions from archives were concepts from runways and fashion magazines that were never worn by women in real life.
