*Audiobooks with Benefits™ are curated audiobooks where you’ll hear audio before and often after each chapter, giving contextual and historical guidance so modern ears won’t miss any of the classic jokes or heartbreaking allusions.

Even as a private investigator, Jordan keeps a low profile. He takes pictures of adulterous husbands and helps local lawyers with medical malpractice cases, but he rarely breaks a sweat.

The Great Gatsby
by F. Scott Fitzgerald
One of the greatest moments in modern fiction, The Great Gatsby is a book you can discover anew every time you pick it up.
This recording is a special “Just the Benefits” version of this book—the audio you download here is only the curated commentary Heather provides before and after each chapter—with audio indicators letting you know when to go read or listen to the next chapter.
We can’t play the book’s audio, but we can recommend: As a companion to our “Just the Benefits” version of this fantastic novel, you might like to listen to Jake Gyllenhaal narrate The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
