10 Books You'll Like If You Love The Great Gatsby


Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf

Woolf's classic novel shares many of Gatsby's themes, such as the hollowness of excessive partying, the Jazz Age's cultural amnesia about World War I, and the regret over choosing a stable lover as a partner, instead of the ever-mysterious "one who got away." In our opinion, Mrs. Dalloway actually beats out Gatsby for the Most Depressing Ending Award, and that is certainly saying something. If you feel like you haven't been sucker-punched enough by Fitzgerald's masterpiece, by all means, line up to get kicked in the gut by Woolf's magnum opus. Happy reading!
