Maybe I’m just an uneducated philistine, but I started reading A Catcher in the Rye simply because it’s claimed to be a classic which everyone should read.

I did study English Lit. at school and got a decent pass, but I got around two thirds of the way through this and gave up. It smacked to me of “The Emperor’s New Clothes” as I have never read such a pointless load of drivel in my life.

Was there actually a plot? If there was I never found it.
