"Catcher in the Rye" by Sallinger. Everybody likes to say how amazing this book is, putting down phonies, but its just about a kid dealing with indecision and always complaining about EVERYTHING. Bloody hell, if you're thinking about calling up "Good old Jane", FUCKING CALL UP "GOOD OLD JANE"!!!
What kind of mushrooms have you been eating? It could have been good, it could not have, really. We'll never know since you can't understand a fucking word they're saying. I'm sure if something like that was conceived in Hollywood today, it would have been shit. When I tried to figure out what it was saying once, it was shit. The play is shit.
Don't get me wrong, I love that book. I've read it at least two dozen times. I have a Palahniuk collection. But I hate the fact that people make references to the movie, constantly, without even knowing there was a book to begin with. I hate the crap that people spew all over the place about it. I could just live without all the people that think they know everything ever because they've seen the movie a couple of times.
The book that I honestly hate the most is 'The Great Gatsby' by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I know people say "Oh but its a classic and wonderful" I know it is a classic but i really hate it. It took me literally so long to read because I would put it down after ever f-ing page. Plus I had to read it for school which does not help.
I really did not like the novel Dies the Fire by SM Stirling. The initial idea was neat. Hey what would happen if all technology stopped working as well as gunpowder. Stirling's answer? Renaissance Fair nerds inherit the Earth. Not to mention that he wrote some of the most annoying characters I've ever gnashed my teeth at. The Wiccan lady for example. I understand that you want to show just how different Wiccan people are, but you don't need your lead female protagonist saying or thinking "LORD AND LADY!" every goddamn time she is surprised by something. Also the pace moves slower than two snails fucking in slow motion.
Just about everything they force me to read at school, including, but not limited to: Catcher in the Rye, A Raisin in the Sun, and most importantly, A Tale of Two Cities. Fuck that book and all it stands for
