My review on first try:
This was pretty much my thoughts:
Holy cow, this is really good, like how does he write such great sentences, it isn’t like he overuses words or crafts really ornate phrases, but it’s perfect anyway, and i don’t even mind that paragraphs are so long that an entire page is without a single indent and i really love franny even though she’s kind of like holden with a loss of interest in like everything, and lane is such a self-absorbed guy, how does salinger write a girl so well, i’m jealous, i’m just so jealous that i can’t write like this, i don’t even expect to ever get this good, lame, lame, lame.
Man, this is good too. How is he so good? I like Zooey. Do I? The mother is mental. This family is mad, but interesting and I’m not sure who I even like in this group. The whole spiritual/philosophical part is going over my head. I’m pretty sure I understand 1/3 of it. Maybe. But I’m okay with that. Because I really love this writing.
I’m gonna have to read more by him.
