You never really can assume where Fitzgerald is going with a sentence or idea. He often begins a sentence with one idea and then ends somewhere totally different. At the same time Fitzgerald knows exactly where he is going. That's what gives Gatsby this incredible momentum. He uses ornate sentence structure to take command of every nuance of every word.
