Catcher in the Rye is lousy
That's the gist of this article. I have to say, I've always suspected as much, though I have managed to avoid reading it. The Old Man and the Sea, by Hemingway, comes in for criticism in passing, and I whole-heartedly agree. I have read that book, and it was tripe. Based on that, I'm inclined to go along with the evaluation of Catcher in the Rye.
