EVERYONE'S A PHONY
I'm reading Catcher in the Rye for Self-Selected Reading in my CP2 class, and I gotta say, Holden's a dick. He's the ORIGINAL hipster, and he's a douche and a bastard. Like, his brother's dead. Yeah, okay- sympathy, sure. But that doesn't give him the right to carry on the way he does. His sister lost one of her brothers. His brother lost one of his brothers. Their parents lost a child. The fuck is Caulfield so worked up about!? And you know what, I'm getting real tired of your pretentious shit, Holden. If I read "phony" one more time, Imma follow you into the pages and kick you crumby, little sonuvabitch ass, ya hear? Not even that's worth it. Instead, why don't I just quote you for my Senior picture? I can see it now, a dark picture of me in front of a tree, smiling halfheartedly, a list of the groups I've been in-- ROTC, Chorus, PRISM, Art Club-- and a Catcher in the Rye quote, outlined in black, written in Comic Saans;
- Holden Caulfield, every single page of Catcher in the Rye.
