J.D. Salinger

I just finished reading all of J.D. Salinger's books for an author project.  To put it bluntly, there is a reason he is only known for Catcher in the Rye,Collapse )

Wow, I sound very harsh.  I guess it is because I am a bit frustrated.  I read 800 pages of Salinger's work and I cannot believe Catcher in the Rye is so different from the rest of his novels.  It was even more terrible for me because I read Catcher in the Rye first, so the rest was a downward spiral.  In addition, the only reason I picked him for the project was because of Catcher in the Rye, and he disappointed me, greatly.  I guess it's like the Mark Twain thing.  The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is great, but The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is rather shallow (or so I've heard).

I feel rather bad saying all this considering that I can't write, but I do read, and I did not enjoy those books the very least.  (excuse the grammar)

Just finished reading a book about dolls and how they get to choose wehter they want to be alive, or a doll. I just forgot the title of it though. :( If they chose to be alive they have to make sure they are not seen by humans or they will become a doll. Its a really interesting book I want to read the sequel "The Meanest Doll in the World." :P
