That's pretty accurate for a generic comparison. They're both held on a really high pedestal and are very easy for anyone to get into. And teenagers get all up their own ass about both of them.

I never liked The Great Gatsby. In my satirical highschool English paper on the book I subtly asserted that Fitzgerald was sexist, racist, and overall a Nazi (before the Nazis were a thing). I remember that the sinker for that claim was that after Gatsby died in the pool Fitzgerald wrote that the "Holocaust was complete". He had no good reason to use that word; it connotes fire and Gatsby died in water.

Steinbeck, Vonnegut, Nabokov, and Tom Robins are way better.

it's funny how Americans think that The Great Gatsby is some kind of landmark of literature when really it's just an alright, smallish novel without much interesting to it. It says a lot about American literature that that's widely considered their great work.
