Gatsby Weekend

Today I read The Great Gatsby in its entirety, in anticipation of a Gatsby date night tonight. I read it in high school with my favorite teacher of all time, and today’s rain was a perfectly romantic setting to curl up and breeze through the classic once again, more than ten years later.

I was reminded of the scene in Jim Carrey’s Man on the Moon, wherein Andy Kaufman reads the whole book to a particularly rowdy college audience. In the movie it’s meant to be a punishment because he is unhappy with the college students who have flocked to see his goofy impressions of Taxi‘s Latka. I think it’s far from a punishment, however, and I thoroughly enjoyed spending a Saturday in this manner. I highly recommend it!

High expectations of Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation this evening… have you seen it yet? What did you think?
