Catcher in the Rye

So I just finished reading J.D. Salinger’s famous novel, “The Catcher in the Rye.”

I am thoroughly unimpressed.

I had heard this book was a classic, but I can’t see why or how. At all.

To me, Holden Caulfield is a whiner who just tends to sneer at everyone and everything. It was incredibly annoying listen to him whine about everything.

Frankly, I only finished this book in the hopes it would eventually pick up or there would be a plot twist near the end. It was apparently a classic, so I felt I had to read it.

It’s a good thing I read in on the plane rides to and from Toronto, because that’s several hours of my life I would like back.
