4. I think the best part in The Great Gatsby is when Jay Gatsby lures Daisy to his home to rekindle their five-year long romance. Nick Carraway, who is Daisy’s cousin, is over for tea and Gatsby shows up. They start to talk and Gatsby shows Daisy around his very extravagant home. As she is trying on various beautiful outfits, he tries to impress her by throwing all of his clothes at her and telling her how he has someone pick out every single one of his outfits that he wears.

I would want to be the character Jay Gatsby. I like how he was not willing to give up on Daisy and his love for her. Jay is a very persistent human being.

She ran over Myrtle and he still loved her so much that he took the blame so that no one would find out what she did. Jay died for her. I would want to be as brave, hopeful, and confidant just like Jay. He is always calm, cool and collected no matter what the situation. I also want to be able to never give up on something ever again just like Jay Gatsby, even if the cause is considered to be hopeless by everyone else. He is a very young and courageous man. He was willing to go out of his way for his friends and the girl he love no matter what the situations
