The Great Gatsby is the story of a millionaire named Jay Gatsby told by Nick Carraway, a bonds salesman. Gatsby’s enormous mansion is right next to Carraway’s smaller house. Nick then is aware that Gatsby is in love with his cousin Daisy Buchanan, wife of one Tom Buchanan.
Nick manages to get Gatsby and Daisy together, and while the "meeting" is awkward at first, Gatsby then relaxes and invites Daisy back to his mansion. Gatsby and Daisy begin to see each other secretly quite often. Buchanan eventually confronts Gatsby in Manhattan about the affair, and the two argued at length about who it is that Daisy genuinely loves. Daisy claims to like both of them, but she decides to return to Gatsby, not her husband. Daisy drives Gatsby’s car, but she accidentally kills a woman on the side of the road and then speeds off. It turns out that this woman is Buchanan’s girlfriend, Myrtle.
After Nick explains to Gatsby that the Buchanans are rotten people, they depart. While at work, Nick is distracted and decides to call Gatsby. Gatsby didn't notice the person behind him that shot him in the back.
After reading this novel, I find the following:
First, the author filled this book with romance and mystery. It has the most exciting ways to drag you into reading on. Once the book has you interested in the plot, something surprising always happens.
Second, this book includes numerous interesting characters that were real people. Take Tom for instance. He is a character that seems right to everyone, but you know his relationship with Daisy is complicated.
Third, the story makes you want to read more. It is short enough to keep you interested, and not bored of the plot. It always brings something up that gets your attention. In my case, just when you think the conflict is over, Gatsby gets shot.
