Oct 08, 1999 468 Words
In the beginning F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby Nick states "No—Gatsby turned out all right in the end…" Nick sees many faces of Gatsby that no one has ever really seen before. He sees all of the emotions a human being can have. He sees Gatsby as a man in love, a good friend, and a man that wants everyone to be happy. <br>

<br>Gatsby is so in love with Daisy Buchanan he would wait an eternity for her. Gatsby and Daisy found love at first sight while he was in the army. Unfourtunatly he was shipped over seas, him and Daisy were separated for months. Daisy tried to wait as long as she could, but after a while she married Tom Buchanan to heal her broken heart. Years later, Gatsby becomes a millionaire with Daisy still in mind. He dedicates his heart and soul and his "money" to her. Daisy and Gatsby finally reunite with the help of Nick. Gatsby and Daisy fall into a secret relationship. To Gatsby love and Daisy are the most important things in his life. <br>

<br>Nick becomes a neighbor to a very mysterious man. That man is Gatsby. Gatsby befriends Nick very quickly. He begins to spend time with Nick, and take him places. To Gatsby Nick seems like a person he can really trust. Since Gatsby is so mysterious Nick does not completely trust him, Gatsby confides in Nick. Because Nick reunites Gatsby with Daisy, Gatsby wants to give him something in return. All Gatsby has in his life is money, so he offers him the one thing he has. Nick does not take the money, although Gatsby insists. Although Gatsby is mysterious to most he is a great friend to some. <br>

<br>Gatsby is an all around nice guy. He does whatever he can to make everyone happy and content. He does not want to destroy anyone's life. Even though Gatsby and Daisy accidentally kill Myrtle Wilson, the thought of killing anyone never even crossed their mind. When they killed Myrtle, it devastated her husband George. That accident ruined two people's life, and maybe even Gatsby's. Because of Daisy and Gatsby's affair, Tom is left without a wife for a while. Gatsby did not want to hurt Tom, but he knew he had to follow his heart. Although Gatsby makes sure everyone is satisfied, he always follows his heart. <br>

<br>Gatsby starts out being a very mysterious character. Though becoming friends, doing favors, and getting to know Gatsby, Nick learns he is a good guy. Gatsby was just a man in love with someone who cared more about herself and money then the feelings of anyone else. So, in the end, Gatsby did turn out all right.
