One of the things I love about the book is the description, when talking about the parties the description is incredible enough to create a vivid picture of the scene in my head. "In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars." I just think it's such a unique and original way to describe the party and the coming and going of guests, just beautiful - and this sort of vivid description flows through the entire book!
I also love how the author (F. Scott Fitzgerald) writes in a way that is quite poetic yet truthful and as a result many of the books phrases and lines are used as quotes. My favourites are:
"That's the best thing a girl can be in this World a beautiful fool"
"Gatsby looked at Daisy in a way that every young girl wanted to be looked at"
"Let us learn to show our friendship for a man when he is alive and not after he is dead"
|The famous last sentence of the book!|
