Day 08 – Most overrated book


I could name quite a few, but I'm going to go with the most obvious one: The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger. I just did not like this at all. Looking back I see that I rated it a 2,5/5, but somehow that feels very generous.

Holden really annoyed the shit out of me.

See, this is the thing about hype; more often than not it's just people blowing hot air. Maybe I missed something significant when reading this, so I'll count my non-existent losses and be happy to never mention this again.
