An incredibly simple and powerful book test for the professional or casual performer.
The Great Gatsby Book Test gives you the freedom to perform a powerful mind reading miracle, anywhere at any time, without the need to memorize a single thing. You can also hand out the book before, after, or during the performance without worries of revealing the secret. The method is so cleverly disguised and practically undetectable, even under close examination.
NOTE: The method for this effect is the same as Christmas Carol Book Test, but with the entire novel of The Great Gatsby.
BONUS: The Great Gatsby works with the Christmas Carol book test! As you riffle through The Great Gatsby, your participant stops you at any page, notes the page number and opens to that page in the Christmas Carol book. Using the same method, you know the first word on the page!
Josh's method is also featured in Ted Karmilovich's, Mother of All Book Tests Pocket Edition
