Catcher in the Rye

I don't know how I missed this for so many years.  My parents even had a copy floating around when I was little but I ignored it like all the other books they had sitting around from when they went to college.

I really did enjoy this one.  The tone was fantastic and the first person viewpoint is hard to pull off for most writers.  The dismissive attitude of the protagonist could have easily been overdone but it was just the perfect amount.  In chapter 14 when I just started to notice it Holden has his meltdown and everything starts to come together.

So yes I am glad I read this book and look forward to more, it was nice to sit in Starbucks on Sunday afternoon and have a nice Venti Drip and listen to my iPod.  The tables turned over 3 times during the hour I was there so I'm hopeful that the economic end of society isn't here yet.
