    I read this when I was 15 or 16, maybe 8, I dunno, but I never liked "The Catcher In The Rye"

    I can't remember anything about it, really, other than I thought it was an annoying, "day in the life of"

    I'm about 30 pages into it and I love it

    It's comedy gold. Deadpan, reptition, self reference

    I relate to the kid too, or relate him to kids I know

    Plus I can read all the GITS:SAC links too

    I leave you with my favorite quotes so far


    "Stradlater was a very sexy bastard"

    "This is a people shooting hat. I shoot people in this hat"

    "He wants me to go to Oxford, but it's in my goddamn blood, tap dancing"



    People Shooting Hat has just replaced No Women No Kids in my 10,000 times crazy reptition routine at work.

    Agreed, it's a quality piece.
