Caught Without

I was trying to buy The Catcher in the Rye. Somehow I ended up with this thing that's called The Catcher in the Rye but it doesn't even include the original book. What a waste. How did they make it so difficult to find a simple book title?

Not the book!

Was looking for the actual book. This is not it. Wish they could have made that clear. Waste of money getting cliff notes about a book if u haven’t read the book.

Misguided

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

If you've read the book

How could the performance have been better?

The description could have been accurate. It made it sound like the entire book was there with extra's

Any additional comments?

Disappointing. Wanted the book and was under the impression that the book along with insight was here....wasted time and money.

Great way to review classics

As an English teacher (way back) I tend to read the entire book, but find this is a great way to review for the fun of it. Had forgotten where the title came from -- surprising.

The Disclaimer at the beginning was a drag .

And unexpected. Then it got going and was
quite interesting. I was unfamiliar with the
story. I like the heartships many of the
characters had experienced and effected
their being. of course it was a sensation
in it's day.

Any additional comments?
