it was ok
bookshelves: young-adult, 2010, book-group
Read 3 times. Last read April 24, 2010.

coming of age story - the first teen protagonist who sounded like a teen.
I remember reading this in high school and enjoying it. This time I thought holden was an idiot and I didn't enjoy it at all. I especially didn't like the ending. Read in Jan 2007 for graduate school

Read again in April 2010 for Book Group - again forgot how much and was surprised by how the first 70 pages take place at his school. Still didn't like Holden and found his rambling monologue to be boring. Totally see why it's been challenged with all the sex and drug references.
