Wow!! This audiobook hooked me in from the very start!! I couldn‘t stop listening to it! This is a fascinating and darkly horrible domestic thriller. It has more than one #ObnoxiousCharacter - and also includes someone #InHiding! While you may not want to know anyone like this, and the plot takes a few predictable turns, this highly engaging book is addictive! Great performance too and I did more than #AudioColor! #AuldLangReads #NewYearNewYou

I was googling #ObnoxiousCharacter and found a website that suggested “any character by Henry Miller”😂 I‘ve only read the autobiographical Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn, and to be fair, Miller himself came across as a bit obnoxious.

I enjoyed the first few books in this series and most of the author‘s standalone work. Then I read this installment after a several year break and found Becky to be an #ObnoxiousCharacter

I‘m still going to finish the series some day! #AuldLangReads

I think there are two camps when it comes to Catcher; those who love it, and those who think Holden is an irredeemably #obnoxiouscharacter

I'm firmly in camp two. Where do you sit?

#AuldLangReads @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

MissAimz_55 Camp two. Fiancé is in camp one 1mo
AmyG Two. I didn‘t like or “get” this book at all. 1mo
sprainedbrain Camp 1. Holden was my first book boyfriend, and I have been making poor choices in men ever since. 😂 1mo

Reagan 2 Holden is insufferable and I didn‘t even finish the book. 1mo
MicrobeMom I haven‘t read since I was 16. At 16 I was definitely Camp 1. Though, now that I am adult and way beyond 16, I imagine I would be in Camp2. 1mo
zezeki Camp 2. I really really didn't like him. 1mo
OriginalCyn620 I need to reread this...I read it in high school but don‘t remember it much! 1mo
TheKidUpstairs @MicrobeMom I think you're right, that the age at which you first read Catcher has a big effect on which camp you are in! 1mo
TheKidUpstairs @MissAimz_55 @AmyG @sprainedbrain @Reagan @zezeki testing a theory; how old were you when you first read Catcher? 1mo
sprainedbrain I was 17 the first time. 1mo
Reagan @sprainedbrain probably early 20s. I don‘t recall trying as a teenager although I might have. I haven‘t tried since either, I‘ve considered it but I think he would irritate me even more now close to 40! 1mo
vivastory I reread Catcher a couple of years ago at 39 & loved it more than when I first read it at 18. I felt a new appreciation for Holden's youthful idealism. 1mo
xicanti Camp One. Holden‘s insufferability is largely fuelled by loneliness and grief. He‘s fascinating even when he isn‘t admirable. 1mo
vivastory @xicanti I agree. Plus, I have yet to meet an adolescent who isn't insufferable to some degree. I know I was. 😂 1mo
Scochrane26 Camp 2. I read this as a adult, but I think I wouldn‘t have liked it even as a teen. 1mo
zezeki @TheKidUpstairs I think I was 16. 1mo
MissAimz_55 Recently so I think 30 1mo
AmyG I was in my early 20‘s. 1mo
Kimberlone I think there‘s a third category where you still like the book but are able to recognize Holden‘s insufferability. I work with teens and often have conflicting feelings of empathy and extreme annoyance with them. 1mo

One of the most obnoxious characters is Draco Malloy! “Harry has never believed he would meet a boy he hated more than Dudley but that was before he met Draco Malloy” #auldlangreads #obnoxiouscharacter #potteraday

Hated the MC, Molly. Yet because of her character I liked the book.

This book has not just one #obnoxiouscharacter but two. Lydia Bennet and Mr. Collins are insufferable!
#auldlangreads

ElizaMarie The cover of that book is simply beautiful! 1mo
veritysalter You should read ‘Death Comes to Pemberley‘ by P.D. James for Lydia and Mr Wickham to get their comeuppance. 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks So pretty!! 1mo
OriginalCyn620 Really @veritysalter?! That‘d be reason enough to read it! 1mo
