I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
I didn't expect to pity Jay Gatsby. But that is what I felt.
I never saw any of the movies, so I had the totally wrong expectation.
I really detested Daisy. She deserved Tom. They deserved each other.
But Jay Gatsby did not deserve what came to him.
A great story. About infatuation, a romantic heart and the cold pragmatism that rich little girl Daisy showed in this story.
I liked the narrator for his loyalty till the end although I didn't really understand his own romantic endeavours.
