CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Mailed to its next reader as a trade-in for Digital Fortress on my wishlist. I included a picture postcard of my village in Franconian Switzerland.

The book will travel 483 miles (777 km) to reach its next reader, never before have I propelled a BC book that far. That record was broken by Fear of Flying on 2016-08-04: 898 miles (1.445 km).

Thanks to © OpenStreetMap contributors for the map.

I think this book was wasted on me. I just didn't see the point of what I was reading. I really can't understand why people rate it so much. Perhaps because of the shocking language throughout and occasional reference to sex was a surprise for when it was written? It's just a couple of days in the life of a teen who goes off the rails whilst struggling to cope with the loss of a sibling. I didn't find Holden particularly likeable, so I didn't care what happened to him.

Sending this off to grant a wish of a fellow bookcrosser. She thinks we are just doing a one book swap, but is getting a little more from me than she was expecting :)

Happy reading!

I agree with Shahrun! I got to the end and thought "Oh! Is that it! Okay...." But I did actually enjoy reading it although I was disappointed by the quickness of the ending.

One good thing to come out of it was before reading the book I was writing a short story and didn't know how to end it...I decided after reading this book to write the "what happened in the future" in a short paragraph. When I read it out at writing group I said to them all "If this sort of ending was good enough for Salinger to have made a fortune from it, then it's okay for me to end my story this way too!! lol!!
