Tony Award-winning actor Leslie Odom Jr., who starred in the original cast of Hamilton, breathes new life into F. Scott Fitzgerald’s entertaining Jazz Age classic.
The Roaring Twenties are in full effect in the fictional Long Island beach towns of West and East Egg when Midwesterner Nick Carraway gets caught up in the orbit of man-about-town Jay Gatsby, host of some of the wildest, most extravagant parties you could ever imagine.
The Great Gatsby is a cautionary tale of wealth and excess and a bit of a scathing takedown of celebrity culture. With his mellifluous voice and acting chops, Leslie Odom Jr. is the perfect reader. He pulls us into this timeless story of an outsider looking in—and the impossible, but uniquely human, longing to return to the past.
I hate reading books and for the first time in my life i was able to finish a book simply by just listening. I really enjoy from the voices, pauses, everything whoever read this good job. Lots of life lesson in this book, and i enjoy it a lot, was able to finish it in 4 days and i wouldnt have gotten past page 10 if i read it in a book so happy for audiobooks.
