What do people think about Nick Carraway? Is he reliable? Is he actually obsessed with Gatsby? In love with him? There's so much ambiguity and I want to see what other people think!

Did always think he seemed a little gay for him, there's a line where he says something like "any thing is possible, even Gatsby is possible" From memory. not sure what that implies but it does raise an eyebrow but his character is quirky.
Fav book !

This article on Google Scholar goes into this and I think it's quite interesting. It really looks at the comparison between Tom and Gatsby, examining the strange way that Gatsby is exonerated whilst Tom is disapproved of by Nick. I'd recommend at least browsing it if this is an area you're interested in.

My own opinion is that Nick, whilst maybe he doesn't conventionally love Gatsby, does at least have more than platonic feelings for him. Though, perhaps the character has yet to realize this? It's mostly evident when Nick sees that Gatsby has "something gorgeous about him"...
