Well, I mainly signed up for this bookring because we had to read 'Catcher in the Rye' in school many many years ago and I thought it would be interesting to see what I make of it now. To be honest, I found the book far too bleak and weary to read, lots of ''angry young man'' which of course at the time was new and lead to the book being banned in many places. Nowadays though it may not strike as shocking anymore. I am glad I reread though and keep thinking I should maybe do that with more books that were pressed on me in schooldays.The book is ready to move on to tabbystripes now.

This was waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday. Thanks Kinedi!

I've read quite a bit of it already and I'm really enjoying it. Holden Caulfield is an obnoxious, little pain in the butt but he's also very funny! I can see I'm going to love this book.

"If you want to know the truth..."
I seem to be in the minority here because I enjoyed this book. It's completely different from anything else I've read recently. I loved all of Holden's funny little phrases and observations and now I find myself noticing, "the phonies" too!
Thanks Qantaqa for introducing me to this book! Good luck with the rest of your book-ring.

Now this book is off to molekilby. Enjoy!

Received today with one other bookray. So it may be a full month to finish. I will let you know what I think at the end. Thanks to Qantaqa for hosting and tabbystripes for sending.

Before I read this book I asked myself two questions, Would I rave about it like so many?, Would I be able to see the point of the book?

The first is easy, I enjoyed the book, it was well written, but no I do not rave about it.

The second I don't know. Tabbystripes describes Holden Caulfield as "an obnoxious, little pain in the butt" and I agree he was but there was a change in him by the end. This book takes us through the change from being high and haughty to him being humbled.

I believe the reason for his anger was to do with Allie. It's theme that keeps repeating throughout the book.

In the post to France.
