Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Tender is the Night
by F Scott Fitzgerald

Dick and Nicole Diver are a glamorous couple who take a villa in the South of France and surround themselves with a circle of friends, mainly Americans. Also staying at the resort are Rosemary Hoyt, a young actress, and her mother. Rosemary gets sucked into the circle of the Divers; she falls in love with Dick and is also adopted as a close friend by Nicole. Dick first toys with the idea of an affair with Rosemary at this point, which he finally acts upon years later.

    Whatever people thought of the book, it certainly sparked a great discussion. I was hoping to learn a lot about Fitzgerald, and I wasn't disappointed. Thanks everyone.

    I"m reading TITN and I'm thinking "wow, this reminds me of LOLITA"with FScott lusting after a woman that he knows is too young for him. I don't like lusting along with him. As I read on, I started noticing little negative comments about women so I Googled Fitzgerald and misogeny and Google said yes, FScott was a bit of a woman hater. Think of the millions of young woman who were forced to read this book in school. I found the author shallow and catty. Anyone agree? If I'm wrong I hope I will be forgiven.
