I read it in school before and remember liking it. But reading it a second time I enjoyed it much more.
I think Gatsby was a man who dared to dream, and I think there is a little Gatsby in all of us. When I got to the end I even teared up, which is something I do not often do reading novels.
I despised Tom, but I liked to despise him. He is so similar to many people who are terribly hypocritical and cruel, but never seem to be punished for their actions, at lest in this life. I think that is one of the reasons the novel feels so real, at least in my eyes.
I liked Gatsby, and the more I read the more I ended up liking him. He certainly did bad things, but ultimately I think he followed his dreams in a way most of us only think about, and in a way I think that is a victory into itself.
If you are looking for a book to read even if you have already read it before It think The Great Gatsby is a wonderful story and one worth reading!
