The Great Gatsby

"They were careless people... they smashed up things and creatures and retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made... " from The Great Gatsby , p182.

and with this, I finally finished the book. It was a nice read but I don't know why it took me forever to finish it. Also, I just realized that they are remaking the movie. It is coming next year. That is exciting and makes me happier to read the book.

Hi Daisy

Indeed you took long to read the book. The last time you wrote about it was 7 months ago and you said you were half way through.

Daisy, I am not sure about you...but I dislike the comment by deep blue Sea...one can write it differently.

Hi Grumpy Smurf

I did not even remotely mean any offense with my comment. Actually the reason I commented so was because 7 months ago Daisy had asked readers for book recommendations and I recommended to her 'The Great Gatsby'. That's why I made the comment.

Deep Blue sea,
I was contemplating whole afternoon whether I should write anything or just leave it be. I am maybe oversensitive in recent time, but I saw your comment as not proper. It could be that things get lost in translation (and there were no ;) .) or things like that)...so I just felt I should say something. I´m glad things are solved now. Take care

I am glad there is no misunderstanding now:)
Thanks DBS for your explanation and thanks GS for being such a great friend and so protective of me. I love you for it.
