With the popularity of Fitzgerald, its difficult to comprehend that he only wrote four novels, this being the last. Its a dark novel because it was written at a dark time in his life. Zeldas illness, financial problems, and alcoholism all contributed to Fitzgeralds frame of mind. Ive read several negative reviews of this novel here on Goodreads saying it is depressing, the characters are shallow and unlikeable. That may be partly true, but their struggles and problems, their desires and betrayals, are what make them so compelling and so real. One has to take context into consideration when reading a novel, especially the time period when the novel was written and set. Also the mentality of this set of people and the lifestyle they lived is almost incomprehensible to the average person today. It was a great read for me. I give it 4.5 stars, I cant quite put it on the same level as The Great Gatsby.

This was Fitzgeralds last book, the one after The Great Gatsby. It is extremely well-written and equally extremely depressing. There is murder and incest and the hapless Dick aimlessly looking for meaning in life and never quite finding it. It is definitely worth reading after you have finished Gatsby, but not recommended if you are already feeling blue because it will definitely not cheer you up. The language is superb though and therefore I gave it 4 stars.

Tender is the night is the sad story of Nicole and Dick Divers fall of marriage and in the end career after being such an ideal example of a wealthy and happy couple in front of the world.

Their richness reminded me of Fitzgeralds other works like The Great Gatsby and The beautiful and Damned.

I bought this book by mistaking it to The other side of Paradise by him, because I thought Charlie from Perks of Being Wallflower had this book in his read-list.

I enjoyed reading this Jazz Era book and finding similarities between the characters and the writers life, gave a chilling and thrilling kind of experience.

In 1932, F Scott Fitgerald was living in suburban Baltimore. His father had recently died and his wife Zelda had been committed to a psychiatric institution in Switzerland. He finally decided that the novel on which he had been working on and off since the publication of The Great Gatsby in 1925 would be about the destruction of a man of great promise through an ill-judged marriage. In writing the novel, Fitzgerald liberally used material from his life. This material included his relationship with Zelda, their life together in France, the life-style of wealthy American expatriates Gerald and Sara Murphy, the death of his father, his alcoholism, what he had learned about psychiatry since Zelda had her first mental breakdown, and his despair at what he considered to be the waste of his potential as a writer.

The novel which emerged from this extraordinarily difficult period in Fitzgeralds life is not easy to read. At first I thought I didnt want to keep reading, so little did I care about the characters and their concerns. However, when the narrative moved into flashback, detailing the circumstances leading up to the marriage of the central characters, Dick and Nicole Driver, I became interested in the narrative and that interest was sustained until the end.

Knowing that this is the most autobiographical of Fitzgeralds works and understanding a little about the circumstances under which he wrote it adds poignancy to the reading experience. Fitzgerald clearly felt very sorry for himself, but from that self-pity was born a powerful and haunting novel.

I remember a long time ago watching and loving the BBC series of this. It wasn’t as good as the ITV adaptation of Brideshead Revisited but it’s the only other TV book adaptation that has stayed with me from that period.

Finally I read the novel. It’s true it’s a bit messy at the beginning – it took him more than ten years to write and he was often drunk during that period – but once people stop shooting each other and it sharpens into the story of the break up of Dick and Nicole’s marriage it’s just heartbreakingly beautiful. Fitzgerald’s prose is often breathtakingly gorgeous. It might not be as structurally sound as Gatsby but I found it more emotionally engaging.
