What more have you learned about Nick in this chapter? Is he similar or different than the people he spends his time with?

In this chapter we have learned that Nick lives or at least wants to live a different life than the people he is with. Nick is very different than the people he spends his time with. Nick is simple and honest while his so called friends are all much crazier and have a lot more secrets. Nick has only been drunk twice as you can assume his companions do so every day. His people lie as Nick is usually just the one who hears the lies.

I agree completly with Dan. I also want to add that he seems different from the people he associates with because he broke away from his family. They seem to be living the same lives as their parents and grandparents.

I agree with both Dan and Olivia. Nick is a suttle guy who is always yo himself. As Dan said, Nick has only been drunk twice in his life. He does not seem like the guy who would do something out of the ordinary or not like him. He is the type who would just "go with the flow," or be a follower, not a leader. He seems too cautious of a person to do things like the people he usually associates with. To me, he is really out of place.

In this chapter, we have learned that Nick is not like your everyday perosn. He would much rather want to be different than to be like everyone else. He wants to live life differently. He believes that having fun isn't just about getting drunk. He is just a layed back person who likes to have fun, but not crazy fun like his friends.

In this chapter you realize that Nick is nothing like the people that he spends his time with. When he was with Tom all day it seemed like he was uncompftorble because he does not have a lot in common with him. Nick is more simple and laid back, for example he says in the book that he has only been drunk twice including this time. Where as his friends on the other hand seem much more crazy and have a lot more to hide than he does.

Nick Is nothing like the people he hangs out with like has been said before. He wants more in life but he also is not as outgoing as the people that he spends time with. He is not the kind of person that would have an affair or the type of person that likes to party or do things that are not what he usually does. So he is not at all like the people he spends time with.

Nick is not at all like the people who he hands out with. Nick seems very quiet and to himself, while his friends are loud and crazy. He seems very laid back and preditcable while his friends are the opposite.

We learned that Nick wants to live a different live than the people he hangs out with. Nick is a plain man who doesnt like to be flashy like the people he hangs out with.
