Excellent chef d'oeuvre de Fitzgerald. Édition poche, le papier n'est pas terrible, en revanche les notes originales de l'auteur sont aussi présentées. Ça vaut la peine.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Loved it 21 juin 2016
Par H. Bonney Fisher - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Loved the characters, and can see how their personalities and stories could be developed in a series. The time period is interesting, and not explored as often as some other eras. Although the screen play took liberties with Fitzgerald's novel, it seemed to remain true to the original for the most part. Also found it interesting that some of the issues explored in the film (i.e., salary inequality, women's position in the work place, homelessness) are still issues today. And there's nothing not to love about Matt Bomer - such a good choice for Monroe, Would love to see the pilot made into a series to see more character development and relationships.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 King of Hollywoodland. 22 mai 2008
Par Michael G. - Publié sur
Format: Relié
The following review of The Last Tycoon refers to the 1969 hardcover edition, published by Scribner's and edited by Edmund Wilson.

The Last Tycoon by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a work of fiction but its protagonist, the enigmatic Monroe Stahr bears more than a passing resemblance to real life Hollywood icon Irving Thalberg. Thalberg was an enormously influential producer who took Hollywood by storm only to die at the tender age of 37. Quite ironically, F. Scott Fitzgerald died suddenly at the age of 44 while writing The Last Tycoon. One can only speculate as to how powerful this novel might have been had Fitzgerald lived long enough to complete and further refine the already wonderfully compelling narrative.
We know from the very interesting notes written by the author and presented as a supplement to the text of this unfinished novel that Fitzgerald did not approach the creation of The Last Tycoon lightly. This was a labor undertaken with meticulous attention to plot and character development. Specific scenes were crafted to create just the right mood or get across to the reader just the right message. One would be hard pressed to name another book about the rough and tumble world of Hollywood that contains the degree of nuance found in The Last Tycoon.
One of the most remarkable aspects of this work is the empathy Fitzgerald shows toward his fictional creation, the larger than life producer Monroe Stahr. As a noted author who found himself laboring over movie scripts in an era when such work was considered demeaning for real artists, one would have expected Fitzgerald to display a more cynical, less complimentary view of the movie production overlords of the 1930s....most of whom were semiliterate at best. On the contrary, Stahr is presented as a complex, supremely capable and kind individual who, though lacking in formal education, knows his business inside and out.
The Last Tycoon is first and foremost about Monroe Stahr but the narration is provided by Cecelia Brady, a young woman who admires Stahr and is not so secretly in love with him. In the very first chapter, Fitzgerald has Cecelia say the following: "It's more than possible that some of the pictures Stahr himself conceived had shaped me into what I was." After reading that line, I had to wonder if Cecelia was speaking for just herself and Stahr or for all of us and Hollywood in general.
Though unfinished, The Last Tycoon is an important, thought provoking book. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gorgeous Coralie-Bickford Smith cover art! 7 mars 2011
Par Sara Burton - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I purchased all six of these books from the Canadian Amazon website ( several weeks ago because I couldn't bear to wait any longer for them to show up on the American site.

The covers are just gorgeous. The art is metallic and beautiful and the covers have a soft feel to them. The inside flap of the cover is perforated and is designed to be removed and used as a matching bookmark.

The cover art for this set of F. Scott Fitzgerald books was designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith - the genius behind the similarly beautiful Penguin cloth-bound classics series. Not only is the literature itself classic, but the books look like a classic collector's item as well! Friends compliment me on them all the time when they see them on my bookcase!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A masterpiece in the making 23 mai 2009
Par David Bonesteel - Publié sur
Format: Broché
F. Scott Fitzgerald's final novel, left uncompleted because of the author's death, tells the story of Monroe Stahr, a hotshot Hollywood producer facing his mortality and longing for a second chance at love. The Hollywood sections, which were informed by the time Fitzgerald spent as a screenwriter, are wonderful, featuring the snappy dialogue and fast pace of a screwball comedy from the 40s. The prose in the romantic parts is a bit overheated and sappy, but no doubt that would have been improved by the author had he lived. A brilliant scene near the end, in which three children encounter the wreckage of a plane crash, makes me ache to read the novel that will never be.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unfinished, but Amazing 5 janvier 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Even though it is unfinished, this book is one of the most amazing peices of fiction I have ever read. No one captures themes of wealth, power, and lonliness the way that Fitzgerald does. I have read all of his novels and this one is righ up there with Gatsby. It is structured, it moves quickly and the characters are really written well. It is really too bad that he did not get a chance to finish this. However, just reading a few pages of Fitzgerald at his best is worth the anguish that you will go through when you come to the "end" of the book. If you like Fitzgerald I think you have to read this, just to see whats out there.
