    "The Great Gatsby has been described as a great classic. Maybe because its old, o.k., but it is not a classic because it is a riveting and awe inspiring masterpiece. It is quite predictable and the characters are not endearing. The characters live predictable lives that are fate driven and their characters do not grow through their experiences. Boring. "

    "One of the most memorable books i've read. It captured me from the very beginning, with a healthy mix of violence and well written characters that had me interested throughout the story. A Clockwork Orange is heavy on the morals, and offers some strange made up words, but I found it to be interesting none the less."
