The Great Gatsby

【It's being corrected.】
I read The Great Gatsby, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. This book is one of the greatest book I've ever read.
Many people say Haruki Murakami is one of the greatest authors not only in Japan but also in the world. I read some his books but I couldn't have empathy for them. The Great Gatsby is well known as translated by him. This book is also given high estimation but I was not sure if I like this book.

This is the story.
As I read the first half of the book I didn't have sympathy to anyone. Gatsby was persistent, many of them were having love affair, the only one who seemed to be honest was Nick but even him led Daisy to make an love affair.
Gatsby and Daisy fell in love but he was forced to a war. During his absence she married to another rich man. Gatsby desperately earned money to be rich and waited her to come back. He built a luxury house across the sea from her house and held parties every week. At last they met again and she said she had been loving him. However, when he beleaguered by her fault she betrayed him and he was killed. When he was alive many people followed him for his money but in his funeral day nobody came.
I wanted to blame Daisy and his followers. Comparison with Gastby's honesty how dishonest they were.
But on the other view, if Gatsby didn't go to the war she would have married him. She was also a victim of the war.
This book was full of emptiness and gloom.
