People on tumblr obsess about The Great Gatsby and that’s great because it is one of the best novels ever written. They think it’s “preppy” and shows how great life is. This is woefully untrue because Fitzgerald is in fact making fun of the opulent lifestyle. Maybe if people read the book and didn’t post pictures of it next to jack rogers and polo hats the reputation of those living a preppy and or luxury lifestyle would not be branded with a snotty and negative connotation. This goes for everything not just the Great Gatsby.
