To Nick, Gatsby is a man with a false dream. But, Nick finds him to be a good man "worth more than the rest of them."
tom is married to daisy and he is a very wealthy men.
Tom and Daisy were at one point in love. But in reality, their relationship is based on money and social status. Tom is only married to Daisy because she is rich and she's qui…et. Tom can be the assertive superior man that he feels the need to be and he knows that Daisy wont say anything because shes shy and quiet. Daisy married Tom for his money and to know that she is being taken care of. If Tom is rich as well then she knows all she has to do is sit back and is forced to allow Tom to call the shots on everything. The true relationship of Tom and Daisy is not really based on love, though they were in love at one point, but mainly for materialistic reasons. It was just to get something out of the relationship, they didn't really care that much. Hope that answers your question! :)
When Nick asks Tom where he had heard that Gatsby is a bootlegger,Tom says "I didn't hear it. I imagined it. A lot of these newlyrich people are just big bootleggers" (114). G…atsby is very visiblysuccessful: he displays an ostentatious opulence in his parties,his house, and even the way he dresses. Tom distrusts anyone whocould have so much money and show it as Gatsby does. It would annoyTom that anyone could "get rich quick," and he would immediatelyattribute doing so to talents that are unsavory or at leastdenigrate the talents any other many might evince. That is why hesays "just," indicating success as a bootlegger does not count asreal success. Tom is prejudiced, narrow minded, arrogant, andviolent as well, quick to criticize others, especially if it makeshim feel more powerful, more manly.
Tom was educated at Yale, he also played football there. It's also where he met Nick.
Tom was a sneaky son.
