about

While holidaying at a villa on the French Riviera, Dick and Nicole Diver, a wealthy American couple, meet the young film star Rosemary Hoyt. Her arrival causes a stir in their social circle and exposes the cracks in their fragile marriage. As their relationship unravels, glimpses of their troubled past emerge, and a series of disturbing events unfolds. Peopled by an unforgettable cast of aristocrats and high-fliers, Tender Is the Night is at once a scathing critique of the materialism and hypocrisy of the Roaring Twenties and a poignant and sensitive account of personal tragedy and disillusionment.
Considered one of the finest American writers of the twentieth century, F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940) was the author of various novels and short stories chronicling life in the US during the Roaring Twenties.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my type of book It looks like I'm the only one, but I did not enjoy this book. After reading The Great Gatsby years ago I wanted to try another novel by Fitzgerald but I really could not get into this one. I had difficulty getting through it to the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "all my beautiful lovely safe world blew itself up here with a gust of highly explosive love.." This book is for anybody who ever dreamed of getting away- of escaping the monotony of their life to the high life- living on the French Riviera, partying in Paris. But there's more to it than that. Tender is the night is a heartbreaking story and the first book to make me cry at 16; the characters are broken but they seem so beautiful; impenetrable at first. the best part are the quotable lines and heart-clenching passages.
