I'm new around here, i found the site while browsing for a solution to this question, which was I raised with my Lit teacher, who promptly agreed with me. I looked for more information about it, but couldn't find anything else to support the argument, so i thought I'd put this to all of you and get some opinions.
Was Nick Carraway a liar? Did he alter the story to suit himself and make himself out to be an innocent bystander in all the goings-on?
The quote which made me wonder:
"Every one suspects himself of at least one of the cardinal virtues, and this is mine: I am one of the few honest people that I have ever known." - 59
Why would Nick go out of his way to point out his honesty if he was truly an honest man?
Or is this just a random sentence thrown in?
