Interesting read, not convincing enough for me

The Great Gatsby's storyline is basically this: It is told from a young man recently moved into the town of his married cousin, Daisy. A posh millionaire, former lover of the aforesaid Daisy, was engaged to the girl until he was deployed and she lost hope of him and married. Nonetheless, Gatsby (the lover) believes that she never truly loved her husband and has spent almost 10 years working up the nerve to connect with her. The story continues and twists from there but I won't spoil it all for you. My problems with this novella were these: -Daisy doesn't appeal to me as a woman worth chasing after for ten years, but a shallow and delicate social butterfly. -The whole book reminds me of a soap opera, with murders and mistresses galore. -Overall, the book didn't draw me in as much as it did cause me to long for the end.
