To his own misfortune, Jay Gatsby is the most abhorrent character in the novel, due to the immoral ways in which he tries to capture Daisy’s affection. One loathsome way that Jay Gatsby attempts to appeal to people of high social ranking, like Daisy, is by recreating his past. In the renowned novel, Gatsby took Nick Carraway out for a drive in his car one morning. They began to converse which led to Gatsby telling Nick his life story. He told Nick not to believe any rumors about him floating around his parties, probably so that Nick would only believe the lies told to him directly by Gatsby.
In Sandra Cisneros vignette Louie, His Cousin & His Other Cousin (1991), Sandra Cisneros is trying to express the fact that sometimes criminals do not have bad intentions when they commit crimes. Sandra supports her view by describing Louie’s cousin with details that are not normally characteristics of an actual thief. Sandra’s purpose is to challenge the assumptions that people have for criminals. People who would benefit from this story are those who continue to make assumptions about others when they do not know much about them. Sandra focuses on the dreams that are not achieved by those who live in an unfortunate society.

22659 Mrs. Murawski American Lit Honors - Period 2 Sunday, December 14th, 2015 Influences of unreliability and reliability There is always that one friend that can never tell a story straight, There’s always loopholes, missing pieces and biases within the stories. These people are unreliable narrators. The unreliable narrators that we encounter day to day are ones that can’t be trusted. In The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield has many influences that make him unreliable narrator throughout his journey in the story such as his profanity, his immaturity and the way he speaks the readers. To begin, Holden Caulfield in the story uses many different ways to express his feeling to us specifically in profanity.

Opening a lot of factors of what could have actually happened, like if Jay was forced into helping or if Jay had a grudge with Hae and blamed it on Adnan's horrible
Which in the end resulted in a very unfitting demise for Gatsby and Myrtle. Nick is not an honest storyteller but he is a reliable narrator because throughout the story he has been judgemental towards others and not saying the full truth or truly giving the reader the satisfaction of knowing his feelings. In the beginning, he said this “In consequence, I’m inclined to reserve all judgments, a habit that has opened up many curious natures to me and also made me the victim of not a few veteran bores.” (Pg.1). Thus from the very beginning of the novel, Nick was stating he had to reserve all judgments but as the reader continues to read on this statement turns out to be false as he in multiple occasions judges a character such as Tom, Gatsby, and Daisy. Nick is a reliable narrator though he tells the full truth all the way to the end well at least to the reader not actually to the characters in the novel.

He immediately ran up to me and begged me to keep quiet and not to tell Audrey, my closest friend. When I walked into this situation, I was the receiver of the secret while the teller turned out to be my good guy friend who just got caught in a lie. In this situation, the random girl whom I just met didn 't care that I walked in on them making out, because she didn’t care he had a girlfriend. She sat there while Nick explained the situation to me. The gender had an effect on this situation because it wasn 't the random girls fault, but it was the boy.
However, Holden gets upset and starts talking poorly of him once he hears this, and later excuses himself with a lie he made up to leave, showing both his self-defence mechanism and his skepticism towards people he liked. Also, when Holden wakes up to Mr. Antolini patting him on the forehead in the middle of the night, he tells us of similar “perverty” stuff that happened to him multiple times as a child. Therefore, he clearly struggles to trust anyone he both meets and knows, which shows his insecurity and skepticism of others. Another instance of this is Holden’s relationship with D.B. Although Holden says that they were once close, he now considers D.B.
Is Jay credible? I don’t think so, based on the Serial episodes watched in class. Jay has told police and the jury that he lied in order to avoid criminal punishment. For example, in one of Jay’s testimony with the police, he gave an entirely different story than his initial two statements. When the police questioned why he hadn’t told the truth before, he confessed that he lied on the previous testimonies to cover the fact that he bought and sold marijuana.

He could have stopped rolling and called it quits, but he continued filming. One may question whether or not something like that should have been filmed and deems it unethical, but Sambath knew he
Those who believe that O.J. is innocent point out the fact that the murder weapon was never found. They believe that if O.J. had committed the murders, he would have had to take his bloody clothes and murder weapon through airport security and given them to Robert Kardashian knowing that the bodies could have been discovered before he landed and the police could have been waiting for him in Chicago (Dershowitz 135). This would have been too risky, showing that O.J.
