They say the book is more of "EMO" fad...as the "EMO" started to exist because of this. The main character expressed so much grieve on the world and regret...as if pity is always his companion. I read the book, it's pretty good though. What do you think?

I have read this book a couple of times now, I read it again a few years ago when I could not recall it from when I read it in highschool. I am not so sure of it being an emo fad, as while he seems to have a lot of grief, he also seems to be jaded, and disconcerned with a lot that is happening around him.

exactly...he didn't seem to be contented... all he did was to complain, react, grieve, complain, react...ive read this book few years ago so i forgot how it ended...so i bought a copy few months ago...was it worth reading it over and over again? perhaps i will try reading this while listening to paramore's decode...lol

first I've heard. read this some time ago, I think it captured the teenage angst perfectly. I'll be damned if Holden Caulfield wore eyeliner!
