This Side of Paradise is the debut novel of F. Scott Fitzgerald. Published in 1920, and taking its title from a line of the Rupert Brooke poem Tiare Tahiti, the book examines the lives and morality of post-World War I youth. Its protagonist, Amory Blaine, is a wealthy and attractive Princeton University student who dabbles in literature and has a series of romances that eventually lead to his disillusionment. In his later novels, Fitzgerald would further develop the book's theme of love warped by greed and status-seeking. (Summary from Wikipedia) (8 hr 56 min)

read very well, the book itself...meh

(2 Sterne)

(4 Sterne)

Some chapters are very well read but others have a lot of background noise with one of the readers persistently knocking on a table or something like that. Besides, some parts like endings and begginings of chapters are missing. Considering this is a volunteer work though I believe it is ok. Thans to the readers fir the time spent in doing this.
