Daisy Buchanan’s reality is very stressful and problematic, so she finds solace in coping methods that aren 't the most effective. “‘Oh, you want too much’ she cried to Gatsby ‘I love you now- isn 't that enough? I can 't help what 's past,’ she began to sob helplessly. ‘I did love him once- but I loved you too’” (132 Fitzgerald) She doesn’t want to deal with her loveless marriage and the fact that she still loves Gatsby too. She goes on to have an affair with him, but never actually confronts Gatsby or Tom about this.
She fails Gatsby and doesn 't do the one thing she had to do to make Gatsby happy. All she had to do was tell Tom she didn 't love him and everything would go as planned. She is so dumb, Tom cheats on her all the time but she had the decency to stay with him and still tell Gatsby to his face that she loves Tom too. Tom is a pig and the things he does are disgusting, but Daisy had a chance of retaliation and she didn 't take it. She could have sabotaged Tom, but she sided with his unloyal, ugly, lying character.
Perhaps I made a mistake with Gatsby and Daisy. She's all he ever thought or talked about. His obsession was becoming quite more obvious and I always feared that the outcome would not be great. Daisy was always too busy liking the attention and crying over designer shirts to realize that she and Gatsby were in danger. Instead she let the affair go too far and it cost the life of Jay Gatsby and Myrtle Wilson.
He thinks nothing of receiving phone calls at home from his mistress Myrtle Wilson. Yet, he is angered when Daisy presumes to love Gatsby. He destroys Jay Gatsby and his American dream. For, he conspires with Daisy to allow Mr.Wilson to believe that it has been Gatsby himself who has driven the “yellow death car” that has stricken Myrtle, rather than Daisy.I can't really think of anything that makes him a decent character According to Nick, it was the "foul dust" of "the careless people" that "floated in the wake of [Gatsby's] dream" which destroyed Jay
Daisy was the love of his life and his love for her killed him. This made me feel sympathy for him because he did so much for her and she never truly appreciated all he did for her. I felt sympathy for him when she didn’t call him to tell me that she hadn’t left Tom “No telephone message arrived.”. She never called Gatsby, which meant that she made her choice, which was to stay with her husband and with this choice she ended up going away with her husband. She choice Tom and didn’t even give the curiosity of telling Gatsby that she had chosen Tom.
Bess’s father was appalled by her death. He opposed the relationship of the two, knowing that things wouldn’t turn out so well. Then again, she disobeyed and could not stand not being in love. “Bess was such a beautiful and kind daughter, if only I’d kept her away from the highwayman, this wouldn’t of happened”, wept Bess’s father.

Lennie and Curley’s wife were having a decent conversation, it almost seemed like were becoming friends. However, Curley’s wife lets Lennie touch her hair which leads to her death.
Curley’s wife gave up on her American Dream because she was scared if she waited too long she wouldn’t get anywhere. “Well, I wasn’t gonna stay no place where I couldn’t get nowhere or make something of myself, an’ where they stole your letters. I ast her if she stole it, too, an’ she says no. So I married Curley,” (88). In order for her to find happiness, she tempts other men because she is lonely and unhappy with the life she has.
Daisy is a narcissistic person that constantly starts problems and getting in trouble even with Gatsby who risk everything for her and will die for her so she can be pleased. She keeps Gatsby around because he can do her dirty work. She said she loves Gatsby but in reality she never did. Daisy just wanted someone to have fun with that spoils her rather than her very own husband, Tom. “As soon as she finds out that Gatsby may be making his wealth in backroom, bootlegging ways, she’s done with the whole flirtation.” (Baker.Katie) In other words, Baker believes that Daisy was just using Gatsby all along.
Gatsby tells Tom the truth about Daisy and himself because Tom bombards him with questions when he says, “’She never loves you, do you hear?’ he cried. ‘She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me, it was a terrible mistake, but in her heart
