Personal opinion.

I think that the history is very interesting. But there are a lot of descriptions and it does very slowly.

However this descriptions have something positive. It find in the time, for this reason one can imagine easier the scene.

I think that this book is one better book of Mr Fitzgerald, because he touch something about the life in different times.

Alternative ending.

They are rich people, but something is wrong. They are unhappy, because they aren't with their ideal couple.

But now everybody are happy, because they are with their lovers.
