Read from March 02 to 04, 2012 — I own a copy

This book is very well written, I adored how it flows through subjects, kinda rambling, but still making sense. It gave me a glance into a completely foreign time, place and culture, for me anyway and I really liked that. Absolutely loved Phoebe and how Holden and she interact.

All in all, I thought this was a great read, but somehow I was expecting to get more out of it. Maybe it is because this book gets mentioned so much and I was all, well it must be a really amazing book then. Maybe it is one of those books you have to read more than once, I don’t know.

In short, I really liked it, but I’m a bit disappointed.
