Slightly surprised I liked this as much as I did, but here we are.

I guess I like reading about extremely annoying characters that irritate me to no end and make me want to fight them <3

This book was very, very slow. I liked some aspects of the book, but not many. If you're looking for a classic book to read that's good, i would not recommend it.

Holden Caulfield is an annoying little shit but I enjoyed reading his thoughts. This book is surprisingly funny but it could get emotional and reflective at times. The language and writing is pretty accessible considering that it's a classic. Would definitely give this a reread if I had the chance. I get why people have mixed feelings about the book. Holden could get pretty annoying at times, he's had a lot of moments where he's being a complete jerk and a hypocrite, but the book's still pretty good, not the best, but it's good enough.
