The Catcher in the Rye – J. D. Salinger
Another book on the list of 1001 books you have to read before you die. This isn’t one I’d have on the list, though, even if I was rather desperate because I’d only thought up 300 books so far for the list and still need 701. Which isn’t the case because I’m not making a list.
Ahem, where was I? The book isn’t bad, it’s just not so good. What it does best is portray how life was to an average New-Yorker youth in the… 1940’s? Something like that. Still, is this worth all the fame? Hardly. Read it for school, if you have to, and then forget about it.
