The reason The Great Gatsby is the book I'm most grateful for starts long ago, in high school. Now, I have always been a very active reader. I have my parents to thank for that. I read for pleasure - everything and anything I could get my hands on. But when I started high school I was suddenly faced with reading deadlines. There were books I had to read and I had to read them now! I hated this and I found myself blaming the books. It wasn't until I was forced to read The Great Gatsby that I finally started to actually pay attention. There was a reason these books were being forced on us. I'm not saying I suddenly became a huge fan of every classic out there but I defiantly began to pay more attention to them. I no longer dismissed my required reading list and just another chore to get done and I have The Great Gatsby to thank for that!
