The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald This what a fun little book. I couldn't help but to laugh from time to time. The plot really did surprise me every now and then. It's not like a lot is going on during the first parts of the book, except for a lot of big parties, but I still liked it.

“And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.”

The characters were....weird? I didn't love them, but they were fun. This book wasn't about who, but how much money you had, and what your intentions would be. The personalities didn't play that big a role.

“'Look at that,' she whispered, and then after a moment: ‘I’d like to just get one of those pink clouds and put you in it and push you around.'”

The writing was really good! I loved all the symbols and funny lines. I get why this book is often used in English classes, but I also get why a lot of students don't appreciate this book, because it is very special. I liked it though.
