Years ago I read Tender is the Night, Gatsby, This Side of Paradise, and The Beautiful and Damned. Your assessment isn't inaccurate. The book I enjoyed the most was Six Tales of the Jazz Age and Other Stories. You might give the short stories a shot. The good news is, if you're still bored, you''ll be bored for a shorter period of time than with the novels. :DAny F. Scott Fitzgerald fans around here? Recommendations?
