Don't do it!!

I thought it was actually the nine stories, not a summary of them. Complete waste of my time and money.

Disappointment

I thought that the book I thought that the book was the nine stories. And I think the heading the title of the book could’ve been more clear.

I read 9 Stories 20 years ago. Excellent analysis.

A trip down memory lane. Read the books first. I'm reminded of the emotional responses had back then. Seymour's abrupt death cemented me as a Salinger reader. Chief's story makes me thankful for an event I avoided in my life. Lionel reminds me of a little boy I have in my life and how I need to relate to him in a special way. The emotional responses 20 years ago are the same as I had today.
