Zooey Glass is one of the most unpleasant characters I have ever encountered in a work of fiction. He curses a lot, swears a lot, smokes a lot, is confused and confusing, and has a very muddled view of things. So he is impossible to like.
And for that reason I couldn’t like the novel. But I read it quickly because the book is largely made up of dialogues, and I like dialogues more than descriptions of settings and even narratives.
My rating: 1 out of 5 stars.
