From reading the synopsis to this book you can't help but think that this is a fluff read - but that was not the case.    Belly looks forward to her summers. Ever since she can remember …

Beautiful Malice: A Novel
A reviewer friend happened to phone when I started reading this book and all I could talk about was the powerful first line: "I didn't go to Alice's funeral." I find that powerful because it grabbed me …

The Catcher in the Rye
Don't let the hype about the book get in the way. It is a solid treatment about the universal and perpetual teenage blend of apathy and angst.

The Catcher in the Rye
The main character is both interesting and boring all at the same time. You can find him on any college campus but the way he narrates his own life keeps you reading.

I was surprised how hilarious this small book was but I definitely remember almost losing it ( from laughing so hard) while I read it very late one night, page fifty had me in fits of giggles so hard …

This is one of those works that means something special to just about everybody that read it in highschool, which may lend it the air of being overrated. This is far from the truth, this is a seminal …

The Catcher in the Rye
I loved the first half and laughed out loud often, but by the end I was so tired of the main character's attitude (which is the point) but it made the end drag for me.

The Catcher in the Rye
A ground breaking perspective on disaffected youth. Although, as with To Kill A Mockingbird, perhaps so ingrained in the culture that it has lost its impact.

The Catcher in the Rye
I love stream of consciousness, but I really cared nothing for Holden Caulfield, so his constant whining got a little annoying for me. If you're 16 and think you're pretty alternative you'll probably …

I did like this book, however, I don't believe that it is as great of a book as everyone else seems to think. It is a decent read though.

Kind of a weird book with a sad character. I guess it is a really famous book and some people really like it. I just found it a little odd, but short enough, and probably worth reading for curiosity's …

The Catcher in the Rye
Voice is by far the strongest aspect of this novel. It is my hope that out of the unfortunate event of Salinger's passing comes the unveiling of more works of genius.

The Catcher in the Rye
Excellent book, entertaining. Like Fitgerald, there is a commentary on the underbelly of being a white, monied kid from the City... but there are many other layers to unfold in this masterpiece!
