Right. I really hope someone joins this pathetic little group, or else I'm going to be up till midnight, replying to my own posts. That said, here's a first topic to get things a-rolling.

We're studying class, and surely if you've read the first few chapters, you'll notice that references to wealth are just about everywhere. What do we think? About class? About wealth? About Carraway's attitude toward these two aforesaid?

Haley | 11 comments Well Michael I definitely agree that class is a major issue that is brought up throught this novel. However, in my opinion, I think that the whole class idea is not important. Sure a lot of us come from different families and different economic statuses, but that should describe who we really are. In a lot of stories dealing with the American Dream, people that started out in the lower class have made their way to becoming wealthy and successful. Ha ha I hope that other people respond and not just us. Ha ha
