"So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."
— F. Scott Fitzgerald (The Great Gatsby)

In which John Green explores F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel of the Jazz Age, The Great Gatsby. John introduces you to Nick Carraway, Jay Gatsby, Daisy and Tom Buchanan, and the other characters in the novel, and tries to look beyond the surface story to figure out what this thing is about.

The Roaring 1920’s was an era marked by fabulous wealth, mesmerising glamour and wild parties. In the summer of 1922, Nick Carraway had just moved to America’s East Coast to be part of it all. But he soon discovers that not all is what it seems, and people are generally rotten. All except for Gatsby - he was the best of them all. Nick is ready to tell us what happened that fateful summer. It’s an incredible tale of love, loss and longing which will haunt us all forever.
