I've got a confession to make: I've never read "The Great Gatsby." I know, I know. I can practically hear the cries of "How can you call yourself an English major?" Well, I never read it as part of a school setting and throughout the years when I've tried to read it on my own, I've never gotten more than a few pages in, despite the novel's short length. If it's any consolation, I've been meaning to read it and after seeing Baz Luhrmann's version of the classic story, I'm more encouraged than ever.
