Review

Over all i liked the book mainly because of Holden's humor and the way he thinks. I find him humors will his vulgar remarks he makes. People who dont like vulgar humor or sexual incounters probably shouldnt read this book. Theres not much that happens except for him just wanting to get home and needing to go on this spirtual journey to figure out his life.

Favorite Passage

"Then he took out all these women’s clothes, and put them on. Real women’s clothes-silk stockings, high-heeled shoes, brassiere, and one of those corsets with the straps hanging down and all. then he put on this very tight black evening dress. i swear to god.then he started walking up and down the room taking these very small steps, the way a women does, and s moking a ciggarette and looking at himself in the mirror”. I chose this passage because i found it humors.This is when he checked into his hotel room. Another weird thing happens when he looks into another hotel room.
