“The officer looked at Daisy while she was speaking, in a way that every young girl wants to be looked at some time…” (75) The Great Gatsby
Love, love, love; the only thing everybody talks about. Every movie, every series, every story talks about how two people fall in love and live happily ever after. All stories get to the conclusion that the love the couple shared was unique and that the two lovers matched perfectly together. But what happens when two lovers do not belong to the same social class? What happens when they don’t share common things they like? Are they not meant to be? “In love everything is possible”, someone once said. When someone is in love, he/she would make everything that he/she cans to make his/her lover happy and keep him/her by their side forever. F. Scott Fitzgerald, one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century, depicts a love story in his novel The Great Gatsby and shows how love can change a person. Gatsby, the man from which the story takes its name, fell in love with Daisy when he was young officer just before going to war. ihidhfasdfh jlkdjf laskdjf adfjasdfkl kdfj sadkfjdkslf jkdsjf ksdljflksdfj sdkjf dfkjkds fkldsjf dklfj odiu ekljriasduf kdjf kdjoij kjoij koi jklh ioujoij yi i i iljkj k fjdklsjf apeu9t hretoia teurjdkfjdjfkdsj fkdjf khd fdkljf sdlkjf sdfkj dkfj dlk fklsdj flkdsjflkdjf dfjdlks fjlkdf lkdjf lkdjfidj flkdj lk joiulkj oliji jkh kjkjlkj klj lk jlkj lk k il kjl i ojkjli jlk ij lijlji jij kljij lij li jl im not sure on how to write an essay im really bullshitting this whole thing so fuck this shit and fuck that shit this document is still too short why? im asking why you bitch.

    2013 The Great Gatsby Paper In the beginning of Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, Nick doesn’t care too much for Gatsby, but later Nick begins to like Gatsby, and by the end, Nick and Gatsby become best friends. It is sort of weird how their relationship develops, and the reason it develops. Nick and Gatsby seem to be two totally different people, but I guess opposites attract.

    For my book report, I chose to read The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It is a novel set in the twenties when the American economy was soaring (SparkNotes…). I choose this book because I had it in my bookshelf for a long time, but never found time to read it. I had no expectations of this book because I had never heard anything about it, and the summary on the back was un-descriptive. In this paper I will accurately and specifically go into the characters of the book, and present the themes…

    The Great Gatsby The “roaring twenties” were a great time of wealth, progressivism, and music. One thing that ties in with all of the other subjects listed above is envy. The Great Gatsby is a great example of how envy ties into the twenties. One example is when Gatsby, the main character of the book, is looking out at the end of his dock toward Daisy’s house. At this point in the novel, the reader is unsure of what is going on between Gatsby and the green light out on the Long Island Sound. Yet…
