So this is one of those books that people are supposed to have read, or else they’re a philistine or whatever, so I read it.
Maybe I’m not all that literate or something, because I’m not entirely sure what makes it such a huge freaking deal that it’s one the 100 best novels of all time.
I liked it ok, it was a nice story, but I guess I’m missing the big secret meaning or whatever. Maybe back when it was written, it was a big deal to point out how everything is fake and how everyone is full of shit, but now-a-days, everybody already just assumes that everybody else is a big, fake sack of shit, and it’s not really anything to get excited about.
I give The Catcher in the Rye 3 Jihadis out of 5
