Jay Gatsby, a man from a dirt poor family fell in love with Daisy when he was about to be deployed in the military. She presumed he was dead when she never got letters from him, so she married another man. As the story goes on we learn about the crazy lifestyle that Gatsby lives. Throwing massive parties and having never been seen at his own parties. He is a mysterious man to most people. What is most interesting about Gatsby though is his love for Daisy and the measures he will go to get her back.

Jay Gatsby is a man who owns the biggest mansion in New York. He throws lavish parties where hundreds of people come all the time. Most people would be interested in the wealth of Gatsby and how he got it. But, what truly makes Gatsby interesting is the reason why throws all of his parties in the first place. Gatsby spends insane amounts of money on his parties only because he hopes his past lover, Daisy, will come to one of them someday.

Jay cannot directly confront Daisy because she is married so instead he hopes she comes to him. Eventually she comes to one of his parties and he wins her love once again. The only problem is that she is married. This means nothing to Gatsby to though as he wants to run away with her. Most people would call it crazy to leave his amazing lifestyle and wealth behind from some girl that is already married.

Gatsby truly loves Daisy more than anything the world can offer him, which is what makes him such an interesting character. Although love is a good thing, Gatsby is to the point where he would do anything to try to get Daisy back. For example, near the end of the story Gatsby and Daisy are driving home and Daisy accidentally hit a girl and killed her. Gatsby took the blame for this manslaughter and ended up getting killed for it. Jay Gatsby is an unusual and interesting character because of the insane love he has for Daisy.

For most men Gatsby is living the American dream, living in a mansion, partying every night, and being able to get any girl he wants. But, that’s not the dream Gatsby wants to live. He puts his reputation, money, and even his life on the line for this girl that he has fallen in love with.
