Status

I do not own this book, but have listened to an audio book recording.

Review

— This section contains spoilers! —

Good

  • I do agree with Holden Caulfield about how annoying it is that people, especially actors and leaders, are often very phony.

Bad

  • Holden is a whiny little bitch through the whole book.
  • Holden is always complaining about phonies, but he's the biggest phony in the book, always pretending and lying to everyone he meets.
  • Holden is also a privileged ass. His family gives him a lot of money which he squanders on women that he hates, and he's constantly mocking poor people.

Ugly

  • I was really annoyed at how the author kept repeating statements like, "I didn't care, I really didn't," and, "she was pretty, she really was." I get that he's trying to write like a teen would talk, but it's annoying. It really is. I actually got to the point where I seriously considered not finishing the book.
