This Side of Paradise was F. Scott Fitzgerald’s first book written when he was only 23 years old right after the end of the first world war. It is a story, which shocked and delighted a host of readers in 1920’s. It was bright with youthful charm and the subject was the revolt of youth in the 19teens against the conventional customs of the last century. It is the story of Amory Blain a handsome, spoilt and vain young man a social and intellectual snob whose greatest need was to be admired by others.
