Sorry, Mr. Salinger

When J.D. Salinger died last week, the world lost a literary great. That’s always a sad thing for me as a book lover, and I knew inevitably people would start talking about how fantastic his work was. I have never read The Catcher in the Rye. I know, I know. But I have read Franny and Zooey. I’m sorry to say that I did not like it. (But I did name my current laptop after Zooey.) I’m going to read Catcher in the next few months, and hope that I enjoy it more than Franny.
