What I’ve been reading – The Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger

The Catcher in the RyeThe Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Hands up, I’m a biased reader, I abhor Salinger. This is where I started and it was all downhill from then on. I detest judgemental adolescents, casual homophobia and the whole damn precious affected consciously-erudite cutie-hipster Glass clan. Well, clan isn’t near pejorative enough. Infestation?

Blee yuk no.

  1. Is that not the whole point of the novel!? In this time period, casual homophobia makes perfect sense and the horrible behaviour of Holden is meant to be horrible to match that of a teenager. His whole character works because of his flaws. He’s an anti-hero one would suppose. He’s meant to be a disgusting human being.
