Book: Franny and Zooey

Author: JD Salinger

Details: (c) 1955 JD Salinger; Pub 1979 Bantam Books; ISBN 0-553-12763-2

Verdict: Franny and Zooey is a nice essay with just enough characterization to make a story.

Reasons for reading it: I thought that Catcher in the Rye was the most overrated piece of absolute junk I'd ever wasted my time on. So I wasn't particularly interested in reading any more Salinger, except that people whose opinions I respect rave about Franny and Zooey, particularly loreid and penmage.

How it came into my hands: People were giving away books at the Rosh HaShanah party at the weekend, so I grabbed this.
