Thoughts On Salinger

I am not what you would call a J.D. Salinger fan. I was late coming to The Catcher in the Rye, not having had to read it in high school. In fact, I finally read it about a year or two ago, and found it just meh. I can understand why it was such a big deal back in the day, but nowadays it seems almost tame. I have a copy of Nine Stories on my bookshelf that I plan to read at some point, and maybe I'll appreciate that book more, but who knows. Still, the mystery surrounding the man himself is fascinating, and I'll definitely be checking out this documentary.
