I did not care for this book at all. Holden Caulfield is an asshole. I just can't empathize with a protagonist that I keep wanting to punch in the throat. I spent the entire book waiting for someone to shoot him. Really. I don't even know why, I just kept thinking "Motherfucker gonna get SHOT" and then nothing. The pimp encounter was entertaining, yet not nearly enough physical punishment was doled out to Holden Caulfield to make it in any way satisfying. I had to read this at the college level. I turned in a paper on The Grapes of Wrath instead. Also this book killed John Lennon.

OK, that last part's not true. I didn't actually turn in a paper on The Grapes of Wrath.
