The Catcher in the Rye - Chapter Reviews 11-20

Here's the second installment of the chapter reviews that I've done at home and in school on the EVIL book, 'The Catcher In The Rye'.

These are chapter 11 to 20 and aren't as detailed as they probably could be, but they're just a guide for it all and they're the only notes I have (and will ever make) on the blasted book, so if you guys want to add them to your own notes and such then do so; but don't say they're **** because I don't really care.

Anyway, to anyone who needs them then I hope they help you, to anyone who's just nosey I'm advising you to never read the book unless you had no other choice... seriously, it's got more drama than a soap opera (and it's no where near as entertaining).
