really liked it

I didn't really care for this the first time I read it, but I recently reread it and have just finished teaching it, and I have a much deeper appreciation for it now. The book is pretty immaculately constructed and so even when I wasn't particularly engaged, I was impressed with Salinger's skill. Plus, the image of Phoebe with her huge suitcases and Holden's hat arriving the museum, unintentionally saving her brother, is one of the most touching things I've ever read.
