EDIT: I gave this book 3 stars, because as I was analyzing how I felt while reading the book, there were some things that I actually liked, hence the 3 stars ("I liked it"). Nevertheless, Holden ... Read full review

Hm... I liked it better second time around but I'm sticking with three stars. When a book is this praised and also notorious(?) it's difficult to gauge my personal reflections. I sympathised a lot ... Read full review
