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)
