We had to read "The Great Gatsby" in ELA this past week over Spring Break(I read 4 Chapters before SB&none during,only althrought Sunday and yesterday--i finished it this morning.lol)i liked it alot,it wasnt as great as the mysterious hype over it that i had heard before I knew what the book was about.I didnt want to see the movie,fearing it'd ruin the characters but we watched today in class,it was okay.THe girl who played Daisy made her seem so much more needy than in the book,and I know book to movie adapations are never 100% accurate but i still didnt like how Mr.Wolfsheim revealed...
Fans of the 1920's might want to read these terrific detective novels set in 1928-1929 San Francisco:
"China Basin," "The Head of Athena," "The Daedâlus Conspiracy," and "The Chameleon." They are available on Amazon as print books and on Kindle. They feature Cyrus Skeen, a private detective who becomes embroiled in unusual cases whose solutions require more than street smarts.
