This book grated me. I realized by the end I enjoyed Gloria's perspective far more than Anthony's, although they were both narcissistic, childish, entitled characters. I started to read another book to before I finished this, to give myself a break, because it was giving me pains.
It dragged on and on and on and on. The same examples of how Anthony and Gloria are vain and simple were repeated over and over again, as well as the ways they were ruining their relationship. If the book was edited down to half, this story would have been more enjoyable. Fitzgerald can write beautiful prose, that I am not denying. It was the story execution that left me yawning and annoyed, especially with two unlikeable characters, front and center, that I rarely felt any empathy for....or even wanted to.
