Nick really wants to tell Gatsby the truth about Daisy. He wants to tell Gatsby that Daisy is lost to him and his illusions won't bring her to him. Gatsby is so lost in his obsessions that Nick holds back a little.

When Fitzgerald has Nick narrate, "Or perhaps I had nearly grown used to it, grown to accept West Egg...and now I was looking at it all through Diasy's eyes," what do you think Fitzgerald was trying to accomplish.
