The Summer We Read Gatsby: A Novel

by Danielle Ganek

Penguin Group US | May 27, 2010 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

The Summer We Read Gatsby: A Novel is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
When two estranged sisters inherit a Hamptons beach house, they search for fortune but find love instead.

Cassie and Peck are half sisters with little in common beyond a shared last name--that is, until their beloved aunt Lydia bequeaths them equal shares of her ramshackle old cottage in the Hamptons with instructions to "seek the thing of utmost value" within it. Cassie and Peck fantasize about discovering a lost Jackson Pollock, or a first edition of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, as they revel in one last summer of fabulous parties and nostalgia.

From the author of Lulu Meets God and Doubts Him, Danielle Ganek's The Summer We Read Gatsby, a perfect beach read, captures the spirit of New York's most glamorous resort town, and will captivate readers with its spellbinding blend of romance, mystery, and charmingly eccentric characters.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Summer We Read Gatsby I found this a nice light read especially after reading The Great Gatsby. It was quite enjoyable. A little lesson on what is important was woven into the story.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A bit disappointed I was a bit disappointed by this book. The synopsis made it seem like something it wasn't. I was expecting a book with lots of classical romance with a theme of mystery and intrigue. One woman of undetermined age who lives beyond her means and seems shallow and annoying. Another woman in her late-twenties whom this book is based, trying to find herself and "something of value" left to her by her dead aunt. The "something of value" was apparent to me from the moment it was mentioned. I was also distracted by typos and lack of end quotes". Where did the dialogue begin and end? Somewhere in the bargain bin.
