The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby was a very compelling and well-written novel.
This book
has a very intriguing plot, from the mysterious Jay Gatsby to the
murder at the climatic ending. There is a multitude of deep characters
will run into through out this novel like Nick Carraway and his
presumed love
Miss Jordan Baker, along with Gatsby's lost love Daisy Buchanan. Then
there is
Gatsby's house, one of the mysteries of the story, with all of it's
parties. Finally it will tell you a little about the human nature.

The story begins with the book being told as the memory of one
Carraway and his encounters with Jay Gatsby (aka James Gatz). Gatsby is
aenigmatic character that no one really knows much about who holds

immense get
togethers at his home for hundred of guests at a time until he runs
into his
lost love, who sense has been married, who's husband dispenses false
information to a man named George Wilson who intern kills Mr. Gatsby.
ending of this novel is kind of sorrowful in a touching way. This is
due to
the in depth creation of characters the author portrayed.

The most in depth character of all is Mr. Jay Gatsby in this
novel. He

is left a very obscure individual and much is not known about him until
reveals it to Nick. One thing Tom Buchanan finds out about Gatsby is
the he is
a swindler and that is how he has amassed his fortune. The main
character is
Nick Carraway a man who objectively stays the same through out the
whole book,
keeping his friendship with Gatsby to the very end. This book wouldn't
be the
same if not for the Giant house that Gatsby lived in.

Most of the novel takes place at Mr. Gatsby's grand mansion in East
New York. This mansion just adds to the mystery about Gatsby and were
he got
all of his money from. This huge home was perfect for holding giant
every weekend for hundreds of guests, and soon became the "in" place to
Without Gatsby's house the story would just not have been the same.
