My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Reading “Raise High The Roofbeam, Carpenters” was still as interesting as reading “Franny & Zooey”. Yet, this one just focused more on the past life of Seymour Glass. I enjoyed reading it, until I grew tired of Buddy when it came to “Seymour: An Introduction”. It took me longer here. Mostly I got enough with Salinger’s, errr I meant Buddy’s stream of consciousness in the introduction, for sometimes I just skimmed through the pages til I found another more interesting plot (mostly direct quotation from Seymour’s notes).
Well, so I’m finished with almost the last publication of JD Salinger (err, I considered to check on “Hapworth 16 1924” later later on).
My most favorite one, still, “Nine Stories” where Seymour first strucked me there, and I never forgot his haunting character–maybe I will never.
