The Great Gatsby: Chapt. 3 - Meeting Jay Gatsby
It's taken a while, but we've finally met Jay Gatsby, if only for a few moments.
That was quite a party! There was such a range of different types of people attending. It would have been a lot of fun to attend, just to people-watch. It's very different than the party we attended in Chapter 2 (at Myrtle's love-nest.)
Gatsby himself seems like a pretty down-to-earth sort of guy, in the brief moments where Nick got to talk with Gatsby. On the other hand, Jordan certainly isn't shaping up to be a very nice person, but Nick seems to be quite taken with her.
Question for the day: Which party would you rather have attended? Myrtle's? or Gatsby's? Why? And, why do you think that Nick is so taken with Jordan?
