Coming out of LV retirement for this, one of my all-time favorite novels. When we started Librivox, Gatsby's entry into the Public Domain seemed like a far-distant fantasy, yet here we are!! Elli will PL :9:

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-great-gatsby-by-f-scott-fitzgerald/

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896 - 1940).


Set in 1925, this is a novel of the Jazz Age; of ambition, of the careless rich, of wild parties and flappers and bootleg booze; and the efforts of a dreamer to reunite with his lost love. (Kara)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/the-great-gatsby_202101/page/n1/mode/2up
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:

    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

I came here expecting to be one of twenty versions, yet all I see is one solo and one dramatic! Is this not the book that everyone has been waiting for for 16 years? :D

Well, since two of our MCs are in charge of the other projects, and since it would be difficult for an MC to have the same project twice in their uploader folder, I guess I can take this one on. :lol:

Set up! I put it in as Version 2, but I guess it's still to be determined which will be which version. :)

Moving to Going Solo.

Don't forget to put a section/chapter title in the MW, even if it's just "Chapter 1" etc. :)
