Mr.Gatsby\'s dream still had not came true because Daisy did not
break up with Tom and go with him. It can be seen in the last
chapter on the novel, when Gatsby was murder, Daisy went to
somewhere else with her husband, and did not go to Gatsby\'s
I called up Daisy half and hour after we found him,
called her instinctively and without hersitation. But

However, Nike Carroway is a good narrator, he sees
everything happen and does not trust everybody easily. So during
the people discuss about something at a time, he does not believe

It is more that he was a German spy during the war.
Nike heard it, but when Nike had a chance to have a
lunch with Gatsby, he told Nike, he was an Oxford man and show
him that fought in World War One. Then Nike knew Gatsby was not
a German Spy nor a murderer.
Furthermore, at the end of the novel, when Daisy drove
Gatsby\'s car and killed Mrs.Wilson in a car accident, Nike\'s
first though Gatsby killed Mrs.Wilson. But after Gatsby told him
all of the things at that moment, then Nike was thinking and
discuss between Gatsby and Tom\'s speaking, and make his own
conclusion. Therefore, Nike was a thoughtful man and his is not

clear mind and reliable in his observations, so it can make
people believe Nike Carroways was a neutral and clear mind

his self-feeling in it. That\'s why he is a character who strived
On the other hand, when Mr.Gatsby tells Tom that Daisy

" I\'ve got something to tell you, old sport- " began
Gatsby. But Daisy guessed at his intention.
" Please don\'t!" she interrupted helplessly." Please
let\'s all go home. Why don\'t we all go home?"
" That\'s a good idea." I got up. " Come on, Tom.
Nobody wants a drink."
" I want to know what Mr.Gatsby has to tell me."

between Gatsby and Tom. He just put himself in a corner, keeping
quiet and see whatelse would happened in page 131 to page 135.
Therefore, we can see that Nike was a neutral man and a
narrator who just care on the truth observation for sure
