Before I start ranting I would like to say that I am not actually saying that The Great Gatsby is a bad book, in fact I love this book. I do not understand however what is so great about the character of Gatsby himself. No one seems to like him (except for Nick and his father) and his attempts at seizing Daisy seem to be very foolish. I also thought that maybe Gatsby was using Nick to get to Daisy and that Gatsby was not actually trying to befriend him because he liked Nick. Although I did feel sorry for him that no one attended his funeral that does not change my opinion that Gatsby was not that great of a guy. Can anyone comment on this?
