Blog Post #3: The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
Genre: Classic
Pages: 188/233 pages 

In Gatsby's time at first all the poor people lived in one area, the newly rich in another and the ones who were rich all along lived in three different areas then, slowly, everyone came together and the newly rich and the already rich lived together and even sometimes a few poor came between. Nowadays the rich live in "compounds", the poor don't really have homes and the lower class live in another "compound" so it would be nice for all of us to interact. Jay Gatsby loves throwing parties because he gets very lonely in his huge mansion. I think Gatsby would find it shocking that people from different religions, people from different backgrounds and black and white people can marry. I think that Gatsby would be able to take in the fact that we can be friends with anyone no matter where they come from and that he would fit in quiet well because he is used to trowing big parties and not really "socializing" be he has met quiet a few people. In my classic Gatsby and Daisy have an affair and nowadays this still happens.
