The Great Gatsby (Unabridged)

by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Open iTunes to Buy


Audie Award Finalist, Classic, 2013 F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic American novel of the Roaring Twenties is beloved by generations of readers and stands as his crowning work. This new audio edition, authorized by the Fitzgerald estate, is narrated by Oscar-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain). Gyllenhaal's performance is a faithful delivery in the voice of Nick Carraway, the Midwesterner turned New York bond salesman, who rents a small house next door to the mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby. There, he has a firsthand view of Gatsby’s lavish West Egg parties - and of his undying love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan. After meeting and losing Daisy during the war, Gatsby has made himself fabulously wealthy. Now, he believes that his only way to true happiness is to find his way back into Daisy’s life, and he uses Nick to try to reach her. What happens when the characters’ fantasies are confronted with reality makes for a startling conclusion to this iconic masterpiece. This special audio edition joins the upcoming film - as well as many other movie, radio, theater, and even video-game adaptations - as a fitting tribute to the cultural significance of Fitzgerald’s Jazz Age classic, widely regarded as one of the greatest stories ever told.

Customer Reviews

First audio book

This was my first audio book and I am not sure the difference between this one and the more expensive copy's. I enjoyed the narrator and really enjoyed the book.

Didn't get it in high school; much better read later on

I listened to this audiobook in anticipation of the movie coming out soon. Glad I bought this version; Jake Gyllenhall read it spectacularly. When I read it in high school, I was less of a reader and didn't understand the book. There are a lot of disjointed points when characters might be at point A, discussing point A, and all of a sudden the text jumps to point B. I also think the book could be so much more suspenseful, there are scary moments that a modern day writer could have added more thrill and suspense, making the book a page-turner. But no, that was obviously not Fitzgerald's writing style. All in all, I'm glad I reread this classic, if for nothing else than the knowledge of this great American literature.

really great all around!

Not only is this "the great american novel", but the recording is wonderful quality, and Jake Gyllenhaal does a fine job of reading. I'll be looking for more of his narration.
