I have recently moved to West Egg in Long Island. This is a less fashionable place than East Egg. I have a rented a small bungalow, and Mr. Gatsby is my neighbour, a wealthy man who owns a mansion.
My father has told me that "whenever you feel like criticizing any one, just remember that all the people in this world haven't have the advantage that you've had."
The best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.
Nick is invited to his cousin, Daisy Buchanan's house for dinner. There, Nick has met Jordan and Tom Buchanan. Through conversations with Jordan, Nick was told Tom has an mistress and Daisy is aware of it. Nick finds out that Daisy is not having a happy marriage.
All of you enjoy the food, I will take the phone and be right back.
Is that Mr. Gatsby? Should I go up and introduce myself?
The first time Nick sees Gatsby is after the Buchanan's dinner. Gatsby is standing by the bay, extending his hand towards the dark water. The green light seems to be what interested him.
