Was Gatsby an immoral person or not

             This question about Gatsby is hard to answer, and it is wondered whether he is a moral
             person or not. They are many reasons for both sides of the story. To support that he was an
             immoral man it is said that he made his living in a unlawful manner, he has lived his life as a
             crook just to impress a woman, and mostly because he never does anything to help anyone.
             Saying this, there is also another side of things. Gatsby is a bad person that has an alternate
             personality which is loved. The reasons for this are, he has showed compassion for a woman and
             is willing to do anything to for her, and mostly because of his quest to live out the American

             his money, and he had many rumors going around by how he has obtained it. This is for two
             reasons, because he has been very secretive and does not talk to many people about this subject,
             and because of the way the people in the town are, and they have expanded and changed the
             rumors in which they have heard. All that he has worked to obtain in his life has only been for
             one person, Daisy. She is a person who only loves the wealthy lifestyle, and didn't really love
             any man, but she loved their money. Gatsby was not smart enough to realize this. He let his
             infatuation with a horrible woman take over his mind. L...
