Not many authors of the current era analyze the situations around them deeply but legends like F. Scott Fitzgerald made a name for themselves by describing their surroundings. Scott during his visits to the parties of the elite class in the country started writing this novel. The story is carved by the author himself but the depiction of the lavish parties resembles exactly those in which the author participated.
When Jake Gyllenhaal starts narrating the story we assume that Nick is the central figure in the novel as he has a connection with the main girl i.e Daisy. Then when Nick takes a quarter near the house of Gatsby the great man finally gets an introduction. Gatsby’s house was not less than wonder and the multi-millionaire used to throw parties almost every night for his friends. It was during one of these parties that Nick got the chance to meet the wealthiest person in the town i.e Gatsby.
After the first meeting, Nick realizes that their meeting was never the result of an accident. Gatsby was trying to reach him for a long time because of his connection with Daisy. Daisy now married to Buchanan was once Gatsby’s girlfriend and now somehow the millionaire wants to reach her once again. Like Tender Is the Night and This Side of Paradise the tale has a lot of sentimental scenes.
Also, there are many scenes with a language that is not advisable for children. The book was never written from kids’ point of view, it was written for the adults of every era who get indulged in love affairs.
