Sundays in with..Catcher in the Rye

link to midnightbookgirl's post

This Sunday was one of traveling! And my family of friends. Picked up by Marius and Ingrid by car, drove to Saskia and Arnoud to drop off the laundry I did and pick up Puk to go to the Museon with him! It’s a science museum with a focus on active learning; doing things and discovering. But that’ll be in tomorrow’s post. I had some oppurtunities to read though, despite it not exactly being as comfy as my bed fort.
I think I’ve done a ‘Sundays in bed with’ on ‘Catcher in the Rye’ before, or the May Bout of Books, but truth to be told: never finished it. But I did now! 😀

Catcher in the Rye

As posted in the GoodReads review: I’m still on the fence about this one. On one hand I like some parts, some narrative. And sometimes it engages me to want to slap Holden in the face. But it doesn’t grasp me. Not until the end.
In a way slightly boring, but while processing it I might come to appreciate it more. The language, the coping of him. It’s ‘sort of’ weirdness. Maybe I dislike it because I get annoyed by him being a phony complaining about phonies. Maybe I actually will like it. Or perhaps not, not a clue. We’ll see 🙂
And now I can finally watch John Green’s literature Crash Course video on it! Wheeee!
