** spoiler alert ** I liked Nick and Gatsby as characters and I hated all the rest {with the exception of Jordan who was just there in my opinion}. The whole Daisy and Tom retreating to their money and prestige for comfort is very real. They think since they have money, they are set aside from everyone else. I liked the book and the drama was interesting so that it drew me in. Myrtle was a whore that I could not stand, her death brought me much happiness. Gatsby's death? Not so much. I was hoping Tom would die instead. :P Daisy I just thought of as irresponsible and unaccountable. She's like a child who can't stand being blamed and Gatsby's that person that the parent blames. All in all, I liked it.
