So i just finished reading the catcher in the rye

I brick'd at the quote, because I was waiting for it the entire time I was reading through the book.

Now I have to watch the whole fucking first season of GITS again so i know what the fuck is going on.

Goddamnit.
>>
I remember reading it.

Then I forgot all about it.
>>
Why did you read it?
>>
why did i read it?

it seemed interesting,

and they talked aboot it in the show
>>
Freshman year English, huh?

You have my condolences, Anon.
>>
jesus fucking christ do they even teach at schools anymore?
>>
we read it junior year where i lived
>>
i can't believe you read the book only after it being quoted in gits.

go read the glass family shit.
>>
now read the laughing man

and a perfect day for bananafish
>>
"I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes. That way I wouldn't have to have any goddam stupid useless conversations with anybody. If anybody wanted to tell me something they'd have to write it on a piece of paper and shove it over to me. They'd get bored as hell doing that after a while, and then I'd be through with having conversations for the rest of my life."

FUCK YEAH HOLDEN
>>
I can't stand that fucking book.
>>
Yes, I'm pretty sure everyone has read this book during school. After all, we're all from English speaking countries.

>a perfect day for bananafish

but isnt that the one where seymour kills himself? maybe he should go in order.
>>
I remember reading that in grade 10 or 11. Therefore, OP is underage b&.

But seriously, I loved the book
>>
Classic literature is so fucking dumb. What I remember about Shakespeare is that he was never clever or funny, and the drama was always forced bullshit.

And then we had to read bullshit like the Great Gatsby and other snorefests. It was like the book was fucking trolling me, I swear to fucking god.

I didn't ever read it in school, but that probably has something to do with me living in the Bible Belt.

Anyways, the only thing that keeps me from totally loving this book is that Holden is just enough like me that I hate him.

>GITS

wat
>>
>>11320419
Pic very related.
>>
>>11320351
yeah, that's the one, although I can't recall what his name was. When I saw the bananafish reference in GITS, I felt all warm and smart inside.

>>11320355
you should consider yourself lucky. In high school I had to read "The Lone Ranger and Tanto Fistfight in Heaven" and "Passage to India" and "The Bean Tree," or "Wide Sargaso Sea" or "Friday Night Lights." Once you're forced into reading those, then come back and try to complain about the "Great Gatsby" or JD Salinger.

>>11320509
gatsby wasn't that bad. at the very least it wasn't about poor niggers. that's all we read about in alabama.
>>

>>Great Gatsby
>>snorefest

Their Eyes were Watching God made me want to shoot myself.
>>
>>11320563
go drown in a shower of shirts
>>
>>11320563

Song of Solomon is about that and yet does a good job. I've heard that Their Eyes were Watching God sucks.
