This book was a recommended read at Barnes and Noble, and I was interested in it mostly because of its connection to The Great Gatsby (my favorite book of all time). Bohjalian does a nice job intertwining the lives of Daisy, Tom, and Gatsby with the turbulent life of his fragile young protagonist, Laurel Estabrook. I guess you could read this without any knowledge of Gatsby, but it's definitely more meaningful and a way more interesting read if you have the background information. If I was still teaching AP American Lit., I'd positively have my kids read this parallel to Gatsby--it'd be a great discussion piece, and it would show students just now influential Fitzgerald's work has been on literature.
