Battle of the Eggs

In the book The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald there are two little islands known as East Egg and West Egg. East Egg is considered to be a wealthy and more fabulous looking island over West Egg. People who live on East Egg have a lot of money and act sophisticated when they're around each other. Tom and Daisy live in a majestic house, mansion in East Egg among other fabulous mansions. The people on East Egg have social connections which separate them from West Egg.

West Egg is more of an island for people who just came into money recently and don't have the social connection nor the refinement to move to East Egg. This island doesn't seem as glamorous as East Egg but it has its fair share of mansions. One example of this case would be Mr. Gatsby who has a cathedral looking mansion on West Egg next to Nick's little house. Mr. Gatsby seems to have connections with other people but many people don't know anything about him. West Egg seems to suit Mr. Gatsby more then East Egg does.
