This Side of Paradise F. Scott Fitzgerald Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
First published in 1920, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s debut novel This Side of Paradise was a sizzling sensation that put the young American author on the map. This heart-rending romance is about a brilliant Princeton University student full of potential whose life is thrown into turmoil by desire. While in school he goes back to Minneapolis where he re-encounters a young lady whom he met as a little boy, and starts a romantic relationship. The book's initial printing of 3,000 copies sold out in three days. Virtually a record of the ‘Lost Generation’ in its college days, This Side of Paradise is a devastating treatment of Fitzgerald’s characteristic theme of true love blighted by money and lust.
