This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald

An excellent show of what life was like back in the early 19 hundreds. Focuses mainly on Amory Blaine's education, his friends, escapades and affairs. The best part of it were conversations he had with his mentor, Monsignor Darcy, a priest. 
I haven't been impressed much by F. Scott Fitzgerald (not even by The Great Gatsby), so I don't feel I can give him a very good rating. However he does catch very well on paper the deviances and different characteristics of  human nature.
