Shipping News and the Great Gatsby: An Analysis - When a group of rowdy guys get together nothing good ever seems to come of it, and when alcohol is added something terrible is bound to happen. Nutbeem's party seems to be no exception to this. I can picture this party scene happening today in an almost similar way.

And yet the party is still very realistic in how it changes courses once alcohol is involved. Overall this chapter made me feel sorry for Nutbeem and his destroyed boat....   [tags: Comparative Literature] 453 words
