Classic Books You Have to Read Before You Die, or Else God Will Assign Them to You in Heaven

The Great Gatsby

You’ll definitely want to have this one locked away before you kick the bucket. Glory, glitz, and a character with a tragic flaw. God makes a point of assigning this one because he low-key relates to Gatsby and wants you to understand that it’s not all fun and games being famous and awesome. Remember: the point is not just to read it, but to feel the right way about it. Once you have completed this, you may see your childhood dog again.
