The Great Gatsby audiobook
narrated by our very own Jake (available from 4-9-2013 thanks to audible.com):
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic American novel of the Roaring 20s is beloved by generations of readers and stands as his crowning work. This new audio edition, authorized by Fitzgerald’s 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.
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.
I ADORE Fitzgerald. And I might have already shared what Jake’s voice does to my…uh…heart. I can foresee multiple listenings to this audio-book.
Roll on 4-9-2013!
