This interpretation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 masterpiece by narrator Sean Astin adds new layers of pathos and empathy to the classic story. As portrayed by Astin, young Nick Carraway reveals his entanglement with the mysterious and eclectic millionaire Jay Gatsby in a youthful timbre and naïve tone. Astin also adds new insight into the tragic love story between Daisy Buchanan and Gatsby, and he shines while describing the Roaring 20s' decadent parties and Gatsby's unrequited love and inevitable end. Astin's interpretation gives Gatsby's loss new emotions. Nailing the iconic ending, Astin channels Nick's longing to comprehend what has happened to him.
