My favourite story by Fitzgerald There is a passage in there about bravery that was especially impactful to me Shame he ended it so awfully because of pressure of his publishers the public, or out of spite or whatever. Still, this is how romance should be done. The Offshore Pirate is sublimely entertaining, almost of a Shakespearean quality I don t know how much I d like to dig into it except to say that Fitzgerald designs exceptional heroines who seem to throw off social convention with ease for the sake of a weightless, unburdened freedom of spirit and character The men seem powerless to affect their own fates from the feminine influence.

The language in this is gorgeous and the main character, Ardita, made me SO angry but that s what shows you it s a good story when you get emotionally frazzled by the characters I was a little disappointed with the ending, I kind of wanted it to end sadly, but no, turns out it was all a joke That pushed my buttons a bit But it was cute Beautiful writing as always from f Scott Ending disappointed me Otherwise a 4 or 5 star story to me My favorite short story from F Scott, the perfect summer read if you are in the mood for something short and sweet.
