Long Island mansion buzzes with bright young things drinking, dancing
and debating his mysterious character. For Gatsby - young, handsome,
fabulously rich - always seems alone in the crowd, watching and waiting,
though no one knows what for.

his life he is hiding a secret: a silent longing that can never be
fulfilled. And soon this destructive obsession will force his world to
unravel. From Goodreads.
This is an American classic. Unfortunately it only just made it up to 3 Polar Bears. I didn't find the story that interesting and I was pleased it was a quite short book.
