Nine Stories

Nine Stories - J.D. Salinger In fairness, this is probably close to a 3.5 star review, because I found myself getting bored a few times throughout, and generally was not nearly as captivated as I would need to be for a perfect 4 star review. That said, with a short story collection I prefer to rate according to my favorite short stories, and the first and ninth stories in this collection are easily deserving of a 4 or even 5 star rating, in my opinion, so they brought up the rating of the collection as a whole. All in all, this collection further cemented my already exceptionally high opinion of Salinger, and I would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone who is a fan of literature.
