The Great Gatsby explores the 1920s jazz age in a way that is full of drama and an exciting plot. I think this books makes a relevant commentary on the power of the nouve riche (new rich) in comparison to the old rich. Gatsby's love for Daisy is inspiring, and it is unfortunate that she does not ultimately feel as strongly for him.

#The Great Gatsby Movie Poster #Leo. Would we want to do a midnight showing of this when I get back? That's a little crazy and I will be tired, but just a thought. If not, Katay and I might need to go see it together Friday after Singing in the Rain
"The truth was that Jay Gatsby, of West Egg, Long Island, sprang from his Platonic conception of himself. He was a son of God—a phrase which, if it means anything, means just that—and he must be about His Father’s business, the service of a vast, vulgar, and meretricious beauty. So he invented just the sort of Jay Gatsby that a seventeen year old boy would be likely to invent, and to this conception he was faithful to the end."
