    He's one of my faves, and a master craftsman, IMO. Catcher is full of symbolism, and if you read it only literally, you miss so much of its intended impact. His other collected work is similarly...

    Depends on the quality of the narration. For me, if they're done well, they're easy to follow, if not, then not.

    I believe the Twain quote was made in jest. As for the rest of your point, I can see what you're talking about, however, that kind of art, whether it be in print or on film, does not appeal to me. I...

    For me, there has to be SOME point to a story, some reason why the writer is demanding my time to listen to his tale. What that is is less important than that it be there. AHWOSG, for example, is...

    Eggers is all style and no substance. He has nothing to SAY. (Except maybe, Worship me, Hipsters!) Which is why I can't stand him.

    I would agree with mayneverhave and Desolation. It doesn't matter what D's personal beliefs were. Judge the work on its own merits, as its own world. Leave the Creator out of his Creation.
