Great Gatsby Video Game

Do you recall all the wasted hours on the games and consoles of the past? Everything from the first Playstation and the Nintendo 64 to the NES and the Dreamcast is fair "game" here.

Please forgive the lame pun.

Great Gatsby Video Game

I wasn't sure where to post this but someone created a NES style game (that's why I put it in the "retro" section) based on The Great Gatsby. I played it a bit, seems pretty fun and accurate. Link below.

A book by F Scott Fitzgerald, soon to be a movie directed by Baz Luhrman with Leonardo DiCaprio.

Here's a link to a radio program about the book; compliments what you'd dig up via Wikipedia.

I made a student's day by telling her about this today. She's going to share it with her English class as they've just read the book.

Thanks for the link.

McQueen,

Glad you passed that on to an excited student. I once reference Poe's "The Raven" to a class and everyone's eyes rolled. The next class I brought in The Simpson's Tree House of Horror where they do The Raven and they all lit up.
