In this book the characters seriously party hard throughout the first part of the book. From what I have understood party acts as an escape from the real world. Partying is all about the glitz and glamour and the fun as presented in the Great Gatsby. In party people can act out their fantasies e.g. kiss your friend’s lover. Although I really like the idea of partying and not caring about what the rest of the world is like, but it’s almost unattainable. Because people will still need to quit partying and make money. And here’s another random question… why does Gatsby need to host party so often? Is he that lonely? May be his house is too big for just a rich guy like him to live all by himself that he desperately needs his social needs to be fulfilled through socializing with the upper-class people. Or may be partying is his tactic to get Daisy to meet him and that makes sense because Daisy is the reason why he bought his house in the first place. Although he was painfully ditch by his dream girl in the time he needed her the most, so that probably teaches us all a lesson; don’t trust someone whole-heartedly because at the end you don’t really know how it’s going to turn out.
