5/21 The Great Gatsby

"They were careless people, Tom and Daisy - they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money of their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made." -F. Scott Fitzgerald

Having not read The Great Gatsby since high school, all I could remember about the book was that I didn't like Daisy and I remembered being sad upon its completion. 
The above quote encapsulates what I remember.

I didn't have any expectations for the movie and found to be fun and entertaining in a way that sad, hopeless movies can sometimes be. 

F. Scott Fitzgerald what you must have seen.
Baz Luhrmann what you must imagine.
What life must have been like in the roaring 20's.

Which character do you adore?
Which character do you abhor?
