The Catcher in the Rye

I’ve been away since the holidays on a social media hiatus. It’s been great. I missed blogging, but not really Twitter. I’ll check Twitter once in a while now and respond to tweets that I receive, but don’t really bother with much else. I am though looking forward to blogging more.

I’ve recently picked up The Catcher in the Rye, and finished reading it last night. I chose the book because I was never exposed to it in high school, and because it’s one of those classics everyone recommends you read. I disliked the book so much I won’t even bother ranting about it, but I will say the writing is great. It takes skill to make you feel like you’re really reading the main character’s thoughts, no matter how unlikable he is.

Having just finished The Hobbit and being so disappointed in the movie, I’m really excited that the Ender’s Game movie is staying true to the book, which promises to be an amazing movie. The Giver also is now up for production with Jeff Bridges as The Giver himself, which is going to be another fantastic movie if they stay true to the book.

That’s all for now I guess.
