it was ok
bookshelves: classics
Read in February, 2009

What a depressing book! I have no idea why it's a classic. I liked the last 50 pages better than the rest. I hated the style of writing. I despised Holden always repeating himself saying something like, "She was killing me. She really was." "I hated phonies, I really did." JUST SAY IT ONCE FOR PETE'S SAKE and we could have save a hundred pages!

Burdetteworld I was wondering what you would think of this book when you said you were reading it. I have always hated it!
