MyVoucherCodes, a UK coupon website, calculated how expensive it would be to live like Fitzgerald’s Jay Gatsby.
They took into account Gatsby’s home, parties, servants, and even the cost of maintaining the vast estate described in “The Great Gatsby,” and then translated that price to what it would cost today.
The total cost of living like Gatsby would be $34,320,880. The cost of fruit and champagne alone was estimated at $81,300, not to mention his planes, boats, and car.
