Now, don’t get me wrong. The book itself was not bad or badly written. It was simply boring. In fact, when I read it and discussed it with a friend who says the book is his favorite, I believe I mentioned that it was called a novel, but it was more a rather long character piece. Nothing happens. Holden was not particularly sympathetic and kinda whiney. Why are people are so enamored with this book? I guess you can say, I just don’t get it. Eh.
