Back on track

If you've been watching the book reading thing you might be pleased to know that I have caught up with myself again! Yay.. well done me.. finished Long Walk to Freedom, and The Catcher In The Rye. Have made a paultry start on Les Miserables. That could be a killer, its in 2 volumes and is very long!! Might have to go for something fluffy too.

Do have a friend's draft manuscript to read too.. does that count?

Catcher in the Rye - what did you think of it?
I remember reading it as a teenager and thinking how it was just so true to life - then reading it my 20s and realising what a whingy brat Holden was...

I just read your review - I loved the way I felt so differently about the book - just captures that teen self centredness, fake cynicism and freshness in the right way.
Loved it. For me the modern equivalent writer could be Douglas Coupland....
