I see J.D Salinger died recently and obviously it reminded me of his famous/infamous book The Catcher in the Rye... I read it when I was about 17/18 (approx 15 years ago), it was recommended highly by a friend. He'd read it several times and said it was great. When I actually got around to reading it myself I was really disappointed. I found it thoroughly boring and a chore to finish. I hated it. I leant it to two other friends, one thought it was so bad he couldn't finish it. The other finished it but hated it too. I know it is generally considered a 'Classic', and I will probably be the in minority on this one, but... anyone else think this book is over-rated?
