There were moments that I got lost in the lyrical writing style and those were my favorite moments. I wonder if I would have finished this had I not known this was the beginning of Fitzgerald's writing career, but I did know, and I wasn't going to put it down. The format is a tad tricky as Fitzgerald shifts gears quite often. One moment the story unfolds in a narrative and the next Fitzgerald tries his hand at being a playwright.

The format is a tad tricky as Fitzgerald shifts gears quite often. One moment the story unfolds in a narrative and the next Fitzgerald tries his hand at being a playwright. I felt pulled out of the story a bit but I am sure that in the 1920's this was thought of as innovative storytelling. There were certainly moments of brilliance. Insights in relationships, philosophy, and poetry - all the best of Fitzgerald that I loved in The Great Gatsby - are present. I liked this passage: "Amory, you're young. I'm young. People excuse us now for our poses and vanities, for treating people like Sancho and yet getting away with it. They excuse us now. But you've got a lot of knocks coming to you---". For everything this book has to offer, I can't give it more than 3 1/2 stars rounded up to 4. While I liked it, and found it interesting, I didn't love it. The Beautiful and Damned: Sumptuous writing. Fitzgerald is honing his skills as a writer. Wonderful to read as a historical novel. Full review to come. Four stars. I admit I had to just push through a lot of the short stories, many of which I found utterly depressing. The Offshore Pirate was thoroughly entertaining and another favorite was Porcelain and Pink - both were stories that I found to be refreshingly humorous. I was surprised to see that Fitzgerald ventured into the realm of fantasy with The Diamond as Big as the Ritz, 'O Russet Witch, and of course The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Reminding myself that this is a collection of his earlier work, I am happy to know that his more highly praised offerings lie ahead for me.

I should get bonus points or something. lol ~~~ This is such a huge project that I'm sort of reviewing as I'm going along. I really was only familiar with "The Great Gatsby" and some excerpts of other pieces before I started this collection. I'm ashamed to say the last time I read Gatsby was in school. Having read now through "The Beautiful and the Damned," I like Fitzgerald's wit and he has a real talent for descriptions. So far he seems to have a very low opinion of women, though. They are mostly minor or negative characters. Perhaps this will change, I'm only 23% of the way through the collection. There has also been a feeling of anti-Christianity by his characters at least. It's hard to tell how he feels because he writes about people he seems to like very little. They are chiefly lazy, bored, selfish, and vain. I loved the parts where he writes about writing. ~~~ "Flappers and Philosophers" had a more ... upbeat feeling to it. The stories were clever, ironic, and witty. Some of them still had tragic moments - but the collection as a whole seemed of a lighter nature. ~~~~~ I'm 74% of the way through the book now (I know - an inch worm could go faster) and I can see why Gatsby stands out. It is more . . . polished than some of the other works -- and the character development seems deeper. There isn't a whole lot new to say about the book/his writing at this point. ~~~~~ Finally finished. I couldn't connect very well with the characters at times. They seemed like actors in a scene -- moving about but not really connecting with anything. It's ironic really because Fitzgerald uses a similar description for how people at a certain party were behaving. Sometimes it seemed as if the characters only reacted to other people -- like the balls in a pinball machine -- they really only came alive or had any emotions in response to other characters. They were merely existing in between moments. I found it really sad that many of his stories were based on himself and his wife.

    3.5 stars. One of my 2017 reading goals was to finish this book — although it's really more like four books in one (two novels, This Side of Paradise and The Beautiful and Damned, as well as 19 short stories split across two collections, "Flappers and Philosophers" and 'Tales of the Jazz Age"). I started this collection more than three years ago, but according to the sticky note I left stuck in the books, paused partway through The Beautiful and Damned and never came back...until now.

As with any collection, I greatly preferred some stories to others — This Side of Paradise was slow-moving and didn't really capture my attention (although it was Fitzgerald's debut novel, so I can't judge it too harshly), but the realism and disillusionment of The Beautiful and Damned really resonated with me. However, I found Fitzgerald's demeaning treatment on non-Caucasian Americans across both these novels and short stories problematic, and it diminished my enjoyment of the tales. I suppose such insulting characterizations were more socially acceptable during his time, but it doesn't excuse his writing.

    Finally I read a Scott Fitzgerald book! For years I have been wondering how he wrote, if his stories were as amazingly good and different, unique... I have mixed feelings, but none are bad. I think not having lived during his time, both makes it difficult to see the attraction of what and how he wrote and at the same time gives us the opportunity to see his way of writing, his view of society, .... in a different, purer way than if we would have been part of his times.

Of the two novels, I preferred and enjoyed most The beautiful and damned. It was a good story, well written and interesting twists in the two main characters. I normally don't enjoy short stories because I miss the opportunity to become completely absorbed by the story. But I think that with Fitzgerald's stories, this actually was a useful thing. I don't remember which, but their were several short stories which I have enjoyed. I am really glad that I finally got an idea of the uniqueness of his writing and the three stories mean much more than my three stars normally do, I just took into consideration the fact that there is the part of how very different he wrote of what we are used to now.

    Fitzgerald's writing - his words - have a certain effect on him. Some of his books and stories, if I stop and say sleep while in the middle of reading, I get visions -- dreams -- of the text, with me as one of the characters and usually an updated ("happening today") version. The first time this happened was with the Great Gatsby, the most recent time it was with The Diamond As Big As the Ritz. I started reading it and then after part 2 went to sleep, finished the story the next day to realize t Fitzgerald's writing - his words - have a certain effect on him.

I consider this an aspect of great writing!

    I have been reading this collection over several months, and I loved it. I had already read The Great Gatsby, but the other stories were new to me. Of the novels, I think Tender is the Night and The Last Tycoon were my favourites; however, I enjoyed them all. The short stories were also excellent. Overall, this is a delightful collection and a must for any library shelf.

    What an incredible talent. What an incredible life. What an incredible era. I have become obsessed with this era and the writers. I hadn’t realized F Scott wrote Benjamin Button. His short stories were fascinating! I digress but I have read books on Zelda as well. She was amazing on her own and struggled under his fame and personality

    Fitzgerald’s best This little volume is bursting with f Scott Fitzgerald’s best works . The 1920s at their best and worst. The Jazz age comes to life as his work thrusts you in the height of his promise to the depths of his downward spiral.truly he depicts the lost generation.much enjoyed highly recommend.

    This is an excellent book for any Fitzgerald fan. The novels are great and the collected short stories are some of Fitzgerald's more mature works, albeit a bit repetitive at times. A long read, but if you like his writing it's worth it.

    Got this as a bargain book on B&N for five bucks. Best five dollars I think I've ever spent. This is a collection of Fitzgerald's work, including This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and the Damned, and over a dozen short stories. If you were forced to read The Great Gatsby or another of his books in high school or college, do yourself a favor and reread some of Fitzgerald's work. I was caught off-guard by the many original and poetic phrases I skimmed over (or didn't recognize as brilliant) whe Got this as a bargain book on B&N for five bucks.

    What a joy to read some of Fitzgerald's best short stories. Except for a couple, his short stories earned all of the 5 stars that could be given as a rating. "Mr. Icky" was my least favorite. I found the writing style lacking and the storyline a little trite, but Fitzgerald definitely hit the mark with "the Diamond as Big as the Ritz" , The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons", "The Camel's Back", "Jemina, the Mountain Girl" and several others that I read.

    The stories? Exercises in mediocrity, done for money and published in periodicals like the Saturday Evening Post. On the covers of that magazine were illustrations by Norman Rockwell. These are Norman Rockwell quality stories, but then Fitzgerald never claimed they were literature. I got bored with the stories and haven't read This Side of Paradise, included in this collection, yet. May go back to it at some point.

    I do audiobooks -- can't see to physically read a text. So I rely heavily on the quality of the narrator. I understand the choice of this narrator, and I'm sure he gets the tone exactly as it should be, but I simply can't listen to the simpering droll tone he affects in order to convey the tone of the idle rich that this author so clearly disdains. I have picked it up and given up a dozen times. I simply dn't know if I can finish it.

    What can I say? I love Fitzgerald. One of the most lush and descriptive authors I've ever read. Personally I'm both exhibitionist and voyeur and reading Fitzgerald is always akin to sneaking around and looking through the key hole into someone's private life.
