Nick liked Gatsby. He wasn't like the others from East Egg. Gatsby was living in their world to obtain the love of his life. To Nick, Gatsby represented a Midwest Boy who conjured up fantasy for love. Nick could see flashes of himself in Gatsby , but much less shinier. Nick felt for Gatsby in the end, Nick felt Gatsby was better than the vacuous East Enders, he was "worth the whole damn bunch put together.”
