Gatsby always has colossal blowouts and they happen so often and are so sizable that people from all over New York show up. The book, portrays Gatsby’s party as this amazing, breath-taking scene with people all over the place and dancing and drinking, while the first movie is bland and doesn’t show how eccentric the first party is. The second movie, however, is bright, bold, eye-catching, and reels you in. While both movies left out the scene from the library, the second one makes a quick reference to it. Also, in the 1997 version of the movie, Gatsby summons Nick to a room to meet him, while that’s not the case in the book.
As well as he is unashamed of his sensitive and emotional nature. He relates but also describes his emotions openly to the reader. One specific statement from Lyman that shows the audience his honest and open feelings is when he says, “When everything starts changing, drying up, clearing off, you feel like your whole life is starting.” (443) He says this when he recalls the optimism he felt when he and Henry took the car for a drive after Henry fixed it. This statement from Lyman shows that he is not afraid to express his emotions. Lyman talks about how significantly his life has changed and his mood, from driving the red convertible.
Significant quotes from “The Great Gatsby” “I was within and without, simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.” (F. Scott Fitzgerald, P. 35), this quote is effective, as being placed in the beginning of the book, it demonstrates that the narrator is not attached to either of the worlds that he is speaking about, thus, the reader knows that the narrator will stay objective throughout the book. This technique stands true for the fist chapters of “The Great Gatsby”, where Fitzgerald, by multiple lines, shows that the narrator is trustworthy. This particular quote shows that Nick likes to observe different lives and reserve his judgments, as if he wanted to collect “the inexhaustible variety of lives” in his mind and then process them later. After all, Nick does exactly that – he wrights a book analyzing his summer experiences.
Literary Criticism Thesis Statement In the article, “Nick+Jay: A Love Story” written by Bob Batchelor the aspect of Nick having a deep love for Gatsby is examined. As stated by Batchelor, “… and perhaps most interesting- romance in The Great Gatsby centers on Nick’s deep love for Jay Gatsby” (Batchelor 193). Nick’s admiration for Gatsby was clearly depicted after Gatsby’s death. Batchelor explained this claim, through Nick’s passion and drive to stand up for Gatsby’s reputation after his death and Nicks ability to stand by Gatsby after his death. .
Due to that, he "considered driving past the Toyota," (432) he knew that this would not end well so he hoped for the best and proceeded to get on the shoulder to check the damage. He immediately "perked up" (432) at the sight of no scratches on his Buick. Which as Gilb states "stood as one of his few clear cut accomplishments over the years," (433) which just goes to show that Jake has not accomplished what seems to the world to be much, but for him was a huge deal. He soon encounters the lovely Mariana, this is when Jake’s personality shines. Gilb uses phrases such as, “told her in that way of his” (433) which just leaves the reader really imagining your typical hipster boy, who believes he is super smooth and can charm effortlessly.
He told himself he would make it through the tunnel if it killed him . “Jerry exercised his lungs as if everything the whole of his life depended upon it” (33). Throughout the story, the setting also shows how jerry matures. Unlike in the beginning, Jerry has no interest in going to the bay at the end of the story. In the story, lessing tells the reader that “it was no longer of the least importance to go to the bay”(36).
As Gatsby pulls into Nick’s driveway, diving his masterpiece of a car, he sounds his three-noted horn to catch the attention of Nick. Nick proceeds to exit his house and acknowledges that “He was balancing himself on the dashboard of his car with the resourcefulness of movement that is so peculiarly American - that comes, I suppose, with the absence of lifting work or rigid sitting in youth and, even more, with the formless grace of our nervous, sporadic games. This quality was continually breaking through his punctilious manner in the shape of restlessness. He was never quite still; there was always a tapping foot somewhere or the impatient opening and closing of a hand” (Fitzgerald 64). Due to Gatsby’s mysterious discreteness and Nick’s judgmental capabilities, Nick begins to distinguish meaningless flaws in Gatsby’s character and objectifies them into something much larger.
Owl Eyes who was studying Gatsby’s books, concludes, “Absolutely real -- have pages and everything” (Fitzgerald 45). Gatsby’s money was very real, and many people experienced it at his parties nearly every weekend. His parties were extravagant with music, alcohol, and dancing along with many other activities. According to “An Overview of The Great Gatsby” by Casie E. Hermanson, “Gatsby conforms to an ideal of himself that transforms reality into possibility” (Hermanson 1). He came from less money and managed to establish himself at West Egg with a mansion and the rank to support his love.
Nick Carraway is an ordinary name and has no special strengths to it. His life revolved around Gatsby, becoming involved with Daisy, Tom, and Jordan. Nick envied Gatsby and the mystery surrounding him. “Their close relationship finally results in Nick 's decision to have Gatsby 's story told in the first place. His caring personality is very visibly reflected also in Nick 's first and last name” (Avsenak).

One of the many anecdotes provided by the author about people’s experiences with Mr. Rogers includes a woman exclaiming, “Oh, Mister Rogers, thank you for my childhood.” "Oh, Mister Rogers, you're the father I never had." "Oh, Mister Rogers, would you please just hug me?" (pg.1). It is clear from this account how people who have interacted with Mr. Rogers feel about him, and this is only one of many with the same praise and affection.
