This review has been specially written for this week’s weekly geek task. It is written using randomly generated key words and phrases.
Some of the weekly geeks are writing reviews for real stories, others imagined.
Do you think this review is for a real story?
F. Scott Fitzgerald is most famous for writing The Tale of Benjamin Button, which can be found in in his collection of short stories Tales of the Jazz Age. In the same collection is the strangely titled short story Mr Icky.
Mr Icky is described as the quintessence of quaintness in one act.
Mr Icky is an old man, dressed in the costume of an Elizabethan peasant. He has a conversation with a young boy called Peter. They discuss the planets, the bible and many seemingly random aspects of life.
Some of the language is a bit strange:
The story isn’t all garble though – the jazz lusts throughout the pot of this story. It is a tale full of promise and happiness. I don’t think it will win a prize for being the best short story ever, but it does contain a few memorable quotes.
Overall I found it to be a pretty average short story and I recommend it only to people who have an interest in studying short stories of this time period.
