Listened to: "F. Scott Fitzgerald Stories" by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Listened to: F. Scott Fitzgerald Stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald, downloaded from Overdrive.

Pretty good, better than I expected. Fitzgerald was a very astute observer of human behavior and wrote well about it. This was just two stories, Bernice Bobs Her Hair and The Jelly Bean, at about two hours runtime. The narrator was not so good.

The only other Fitzgerald story I have read was Great Gatsby during high school. The two stories here have really good looks into the characters and I should try to re-read Gatsby to see how my impression will have changed. Both Bernice and Jim (the Jelly Bean) were interesting and imperfect people.
