  2. The Great Gatsby is your neighbor you re best friends with until you find out he s a drug dealer It charms you with some of the most elegant English prose ever published, making it difficult to discuss the novel without the urge to stammer awestruck about its beauty It would be evidence enough to argue that F Scott Fitzgerald was superhuman, if it wasn t for the fact that we know he also wrote This Side of Paradise.But despite its magic, the rhetoric is just that, and it is a cruel facade Be The Great Gatsby is your neighbor you re best friends with until you find out he s a drug dealer It charms you with some of the most elegant English prose ever published, making it difficult to discuss the novel without the urge to stammer awestruck about its beauty It would be evidence enough to argue that F Scott Fitzgerald was superhuman, if it wasn t for the fact that we know he also wrote This Side of Paradise.But despite its magic, the rhetoric is just that, and it is a cruel facade Behind the stunning glitter lies a story with all the discontent and intensity of the early Metallica albums At its heart, The Great Gatsby throws the very nature of our desires into a harsh, shocking light There may never be a character who so epitomizes tragically misplaced devotion as Jay Gatsby, and Daisy, his devotee, plays her part with perfect, innocent malevolence Gatsby s competition, Tom Buchanan, stands as...

  5. Jay Gatsby, you poor doomed bastard You were ahead of your time If you would have pulled your scam after the invention of reality TV, you would have been a huge star on a show like The Bachelor and a dozen shameless Daisy types would have thrown themselves at you Mass media and modern fame would have embraced the way you tried to push your way into a social circle you didn t belong to in an effort to fulfill a fool s dream as your entire existence became a lie and you desperately sought to re Jay Gatsby, you poor doomed bastard You were ahead of your time If you would have pulled your scam after the invention of reality TV, you would have been a huge star on a show like The Bachelor and a dozen shameless Daisy types would have thrown themselves at you Mass media and modern fame would have embraced the way you tried to push your way into a social circle you didn t belong to in an effort to fulfill a fool s dream as your entire existence became a lie and you desperately sought to rewrite history to an ending you wanted You had a talent for it, Jay, but a modern PR expert would have made you bigger than Kate Gosselin Your knack for self promotion and over the top displays of wealth to try and buy respectability would have fit right in these days I can just about see you on a red carpet with Paris Hilton And the ending would have been different No aftermath f...
