This Side of Paradise

One of things I hope to get around doing this year is to read all of F. Scott Fitzgerald's major novels. 
 (In my life, I've only read and re-read The Great Gatsby, which I love.) 
I figured I should start from the beginning and pick up Fitzgerald's first novel – This Side of Paradise, which he published at 23.   
 I haven't been doing well with books lately (too distracted, too impatient) so I started the book timidly.  
When I got to this one particular sentence though, when I fell upon it, it happened almost like magic: I instantly had a feeling that I was going to like this book and that it was going to like me.

The exchange of ideas is a key part of the human experience, don't you think? I would love to hear from you.
