The Great Gatsby Chapter 7

"It was when curiosity about Gatsby was at its highest that the lights failed to go on one Saturday night"(Page 113). That is interesting because that shows that a light just went on in his head as well in the house. "Daisy comes over quite often in the afternoon" (Page 114). That is weird because now she really does impress him and she likes him a lot. "That that's Tom's girl on the telephone." (Page 116). So now we find out that Tom has more then one affair. "She had told him that she loved him, and Tom Buchanan saw"(Page 119). That doesn't sound like it is going to end well for Daisy or Gatsby. "The suggestion was distasteful to Gatsby" (Page 121). That is weird because that is not something that we would do in today's time. "Daisy invited him; she knew him before we were married-God knows where!"(Page 122). That is so interesting and now Tom is really upset with everyone because of Daisy's affairs. "In the sunlight his face was green."(Page 123). That is very interesting because green is anger. "Over the ash heaps the giant eyes of Doctor T.J Ecklebug kept their vigil, but I perceived, after a moment, that other eyes were regarding us with peculiar intensity from less than twenty feet away."(Page 124). That is interesting because the eyes are still watching them. "The day after he left Daddy died"(Page 127). That is interesting and gives us information on Jordan and what she shares. "I only stayed five months"(Page 129). That like Fitzgerald. "Your wife doesn't love you"(Page 130). That is a weird way to just come out and say that. "Once in a while I go off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always come back, and in my heart I lover all the time" (Page 131). That is a very weird thing to say when you want your wife to stay with you. "He looked-and this is said in all contempt for the babbled saner of his garden- as if he had "killed a man"(Page 134). That is weird because he is more observant than ever. "death car"(Page 137). That is so sad that it has to happen that way for the wife to die. "It was a yellow car"(Page 139). Was it Gatsby's car? "In a little while I heard a low husky sob, and saw that the tears were overflowing down his face"(Page 141). Tom has feeling now and he feel really bad for Mr. Wilson. "I could think of nothing except the luminosity of his pink suit under the moon"(Page 142). That is more weird that Gatsby is wearing pink. "Was Daisy driving?"(Page 143). So Daisy took Mrs. Wilson's life. "So I left him there in the moon light"(Page 145). Is that what is in the cover in the eyes?
