So far, rereading The Great Gatsby hasn’t been awe-inspiring. I’m used to reading comics and visual novels, but aim not a fan of this art style or the story as much as I thought I was.
I appreciate the format--I am not able to create images in my head, so actually seeing the people (in a different way than the DiCaprio movie, somehow) made it easier to differentiate everyone.
Really, the main thing that I didn’t like so much was how light and bright the whole thing is. When I’m reading the Fitzgerald book, I’m imagining everything very dark and rather dreary unless a Gatsby party is going on. Here, it’s evoking a different emotion and it feels very off compared to the original.
