The scene quickly changes to Gatsby’s mansion and in one of his parties in which Nick attends and ‘’was one of the few guests who had actually been invited’’. This also shows that Gatsby expends all this money on a party for people he may not know who have merely invited themselves and are welcomed simply for coming. One point of view is that he may be doing all this for Daisy to attract her in and show how rich and well-known he has become in New-York so that she would leave Tom and be reunited with him. At this point of the chapter we find Nick change from a spectator to a participator. During this chapter and most of the story, we see through Nick’s perspective of the party.

It was very touching. Also, we have a mind reading devise and we heard the part when you said, “I wanted to do something, right here, right now, to shame them…”(pg236,pg.237) We thought that was very brave of you. Let us reminded you that we have the games so there won’t be a need to destroy another district like district 13. You should be grateful that we allowed you to participate in the games. Although we liked that you did this, your actions caused a riot in Rue’s district and we had not other choice but to put down a couple of rioters.
Greed has been exemplified through racism and cheating on a famous 1950s game show. Image had become an important part of society, and that was seen when the TV industry became corrupt by losing their morals. The show “Twenty-One” was willing to do anything it could to bolster its image, even if it involved cheating. First, the producers were able to get an entire nation to believe that a Jewish character from Brooklyn had gotten a very easy question wrong, however he was paid to in favor that a new white man with a famous background comes in instead. However, it was not only the producers that began to become involved in cheating.
He spent a lot of hard earned money throwing these parties and trying to make them the best he could so daisy would like him more. He was living in the moment and at that time all he was living for was Daisy. Everything he did, talking to Nick, throwing the parties, and even staying with the group, all of this was for the little love Daisy had to offer. He may have done a few frowned upon activities, some of these including the illegal sales of drugs and other substances. He also had to involve himself with a few people that wer not so appealing to others.
Tom and Daisy’s invitation (and attendance) to one of Gatsby’s extravagant parties allows Fitzgerald to truly cement the gulf between Gatsby and Daisy. When Gatsby urges Daisy to “look around” she describes she is having a “marvellous time” yet her speech is interrupted by Gatsby. This is an indication of Gatsby’s nervousness because his usual finesse and polish has been cracked due to the significance he has placed on Daisy coming to one of his luxurious parties. It also reveals Gatsby’s lack of true social grace, despite his obvious monetary gains, we can see his impoverished roots (revealed earlier in the chapter) come to light. Gatsby also urges Daisy to “look around” because he is desperate to show her what he has created and ‘earned’ for her.
Oh but "fun" doesn’t just mean 'drink, party, be wild and stupid' to some of us. Or, "I have the best friends ever!” Yeah, till you both have a crush on the same guy, or til you ditch the party scene (then see how many of your friends still talk to you). Speaking of friends, you're not approachable when you're with your
Although Jay Gatsby is kind in the story by throwing parties for everyone to come to he is not necessarily friendly to everyone. At his party, almost everyone had never even met Gatsby before. If he was friendly he would have made sure he met everyone at his party. A great person is one that people like and get along with and if Jay Gatsby isn’t friendly and kind there is no way that people can like him and get along with him. Individualism is the opposite of conformity which is exactly what Gatsby does through out the novel.
He works to become one highly respected in society to impress and gain back his love, Daisy. Throwing huge parties, having colleagues and friends over to his mansion to hangout and having out of the norm fancy dinner parties. This illustration clearly shows that people living the American Dream, which Jay Gatsby by society’s standard was, aren’t always the happiest or most pleasant. Jay Gatsby dies not a happy man and literally dies from trying to achieve what he perceived as the American Dream, regaining his true
