Two blogger friends introduced the book to me. Mots said that it was one of his Required Reading when he was still studying. Nyl mentioned that I should start reading it after I read The Perks of Being a Wallflower because it’s eerie and somehow the book knows me.
I have high expectations about the book! Haha.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THE BOOK:
Yes, Holden is definitely the reason why I love the book. He is so complicated but in a very cool way. The way he think fascinates me. The way he cares for Sophie wants him to be my older brother. And, the way he sees thinks makes me want to have his brain. :)
Some people think that the book is challenged not just because of the language used but also because of the mature themes that were being discussed in the book. But I appreciate books like this. For me, a reading material that gave you a head on realization of the things happening around you should be published more.
I also like the way the book ended. Holden making his reader imagine what life is in store for his is really a cool idea. For me, I will really love Holden to go back to school and not flunk anymore, but somehow, I also want Holden to just follow his dream because I am always a believer of doing something you love will always make you happy.
If you’ve read the book, how do you want Holden’s story to end?
WHAT I DON’T LIKE ABOUT THE BOOK:
This is hard. I guess it will be some of the stories when Holden is reminiscing them, because I was really concentrated on what is really happening with him. :)
I also hate his sneaky professor, haha!
Well the book is really nice. It will always give you a reason to be optimistic with everything that you do. That no matter how difficult things can get, things will be okay, if not now, it will happen soon enough.
