The Catcher in the Rye review part 2

[EDIT: 08/01/04 – Yeah, this really sucks. I suggest you scroll to the bottom and click the link to the real review.]

[continued from part 1]

You’d think that since I’m so cynical, I would’ve liked the book, but no, I don’t. I didn’t think it was great that the kid was so negative, I thought it was annoying. Damn, kid, shut up and stop your whining.

The narrative style isn’t really that original. Check out Huckleberry Finn. Hell, I could write a book just like The Catcher in the Rye, easy. It didn’t exactly make any earth-shattering observations. All I have to do is write about a bunch of isolated incidents and then criticize everything. None of the events have to influence each other.

So, overall, I thought the book was boring and a waste of time. I have no idea how anyone got the idea that it was some classic novel.

And I just repeated what I said in part 1. I probably could write a better review, but I’m not up to it. Whatever.

[EDIT: 10/20/03 – I finally decided I was up to it, so read this entry, and disregard what you just read.]

    If you think that you are so much better than J.D. Sangler then why don’t you write your own book in his writing style. I bet that you would fail misserably…. prove me wrong!

    What I see is that you are the only one who is whinning. I also see that you are a very inexperienced reader by the way you totally reject the book. This is an excellent piece of literature and should be appreciated. Just because you don’t appreciate it does not mean that your critisism matters. You should grow up – maybe then you can give your opinions about books!

    I Agree with Joe. if you can write a book better then “The Catcher in the Rye” be my guest. I have a feeling u are too much up your ass to even be able to write a book like that so i suggest you shut up.
