The Last Tycoon is thus, even in its imperfect state, Fitzgerald's most mature piece of work. It is marked off also from his other novels by the fact that it is the first to deal seriously with any profession or business.

The Last Tycoon is thus, even in its imperfect state, Fitzgerald's most mature piece of work. The earlier books of Fitzgerald had been preoccupied with debutantes and college boys, with the fast lives of the wild spenders of the twenties. The main activities of the people in these stories, the occasions for which they live, are big parties at which they go off like fireworks and which are likely to leave them in pieces.

Reviews about The Last Tycoon (7):
Fitzgerald never finished this piece, but was well on his way. Too bad someone doesn't have the capability to take his notes and conclude it. Very entangled with lots of options. It is an excellent example of a work in progress, and the editor in you wants to make suggestions etc. Which makes it ever so much more than just a read. His style is so simple but so full of interesting turns that are more than just glitz. They have meaning to the story. I highly recommend it.
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.
Fitzerald is one of my son's favorite authors and for Christmas one year I bought all of his books for their library. I finally bought this one for my own library. It is a challenge seeing the narrator, (Fitzgerald) as a female. Monroe Stahr is a Hollywood big shot and Fitzgerald doesn't finish his last novel before he dies. If you're looking for another Gatsby, it's not going to happen here. It's a good read, but it's not Gatsby.
Fascinating to think about this man and how his literary life ended. This was an enjoyable read.
I'm giving this book one star not for it's content but for this particular ebook edition. I love the Last Tycoon but lent out my paperback copy to a friend who lent it to a friend and it just never came back to me.So I thought I'll buy it as an ebook so it stays on my kindle. I found this edition and loved that it had the old cover on it and I even looked inside before i purchased. I noticed that it looked like it was scanned in but figured it wouldn't make any difference and it was fine to read on my computer. However, when I opened it on my Kindle, the print was so small, I couldn't read it even with reading glasses. No problem I thought, just go to the font size feature and enlarge it. Well, turns out you can't enlarge the font size in this book and that made it impossible for me to read it. So please find another edition of The Last Tycoon, it is well worth reading.
so so
jusdt as listed
I love Fitzgerald but this book left me cold.
