I thought that the Great Gatsby was an okay book. Before I read it everyone commeneted on how great it was, but really it did not live up to my expectations at all. For one. I didn't really understand what the purpose of having Jordan Baker in the novel at all besides to tell Nick the story behind Gatsby's love for Daisy. Fitzgerald didn't do a good job in describing as nothing much else besides a Golf player. Throughtout the novel I found myslef wondereing who she really was supposed to be, and one of the reasons i love to read is because I love to understand the charectors and relate to them. A good author should describe them more vivdly.
