It’s not super well written and really didn’t live up to my expectations, but it was a nice read with some interesting details and symbolism. I think it was quite important for its time, even if it isn’t beautifully written.

did i fall alseep/ was on the verge of falling asleep while reading this book? yes multiple times but analyzing it and finding out the deeper meanings was fun. i liked it more than huckleberry finn so you know solid 3 stars. also my brain didn’t fully register the ending but when they said it out loud in class i was like oh. but we all saw it coming.

4.0

An well-realised character study of an insightful, troubled young man who is full of definite answers for the strange, inauthentic behaviours of the peers and adults in his life. The plot drives an exploration of his neuroses, and challenges their preconceptions about those around him - often confirming them. The narrator's tone and cynicism is rendered very faithfully to the experience of being young, and coupled with the struggles of disconnection, loss, and the chaos of life.
