Did You Hear Who Died ??!!

J.D Salinger the author of the Catcher in the Rye. January 29, 2010. He was 91 years old!

 Salinger died of natural causes at his home on that Wednesday.

Heres a little snippet from a paragraph about his book.

"Salinger was writing for adults, but teenagers from all over identified with the novel's themes of alienation, innocence and fantasy, not to mention the luck of having the last word. "Catcher" presents the world as an ever-so-unfair struggle between the goodness of young people and the corruption of elders, a message that only intensified with the oncoming generation gap."

I have this book in my personal book stash in my room. If you haven't read it you should (:

R. I. P Jerome David Salinger.

Yes, a classic. Shame he didn't really have anything published after.
