Comments

  • DamnTheBroccoli: I can see Kieran Culkin as Holden, but it seems almost too similar to his role in Igby Goes Down.
  • SkyFire: We had to read this in high school... I remember very little.
  • DamnTheBroccoli: There's a pretty decent summary as well as character descriptions and chapter by chapter analysis on the Spark Notes site.
  • SkyFire: Thanks!
