Book Review: All the Sad Young Men

"All the Sad Young Men" by F.Scott Fitzgerald is a great, quick read. If you liked "The Great Gatsby", or plan to see the movie soon, keep the Roaring Twenties spirit alive with this set of short stories by the same author. Some of these stories can be seen as alternative Gatsby endings, but without any knowledge of Gatsby, these stories are good enough on their own. My favorite story would have to be "The Baby Party" which tells about the love between a father and a daughter. To keep things short, all the stories are similar to Gatsby, most with tragic endings about how women let down the men they "love." It seems Fitzgerald's endings always turn out this way, but it is still a great read.
