In following essay I will write about how Fitzgerald made Tom Buchanan such an unpleasant character.

In the book “The Great Gatsby” Tom Buchanan was married man with a daughter. He was unfaithful to his wife by cheating on her with another woman that made him an unpleasant character. “I want you to meet my girl.”  Tom said that to Nick when they went to New York to meet Myrtle.

Tom Buchanan was unpleasant in other ways too. He was a very violent man. ”I know you didn’t mean to but you did it. This is what I get for marring a brute man.” Daisy says this to Tom showing him her bruised knuckle which was proof that he had hit her.

“Making a short movement Tom Buchanan  broke Myrtle`s nose” This shows how violent Tom was and Jealous. He hit Myrtle because she was saying his wife name and he couldn`t tolerate that.

In conclusion Fitzgerald made Tom a very unpleasant man because he was unfaithful and violent.
