Added DiffLines:

* JerkassWoobie: Holden is a pretty bitter character who goes on about the "phoniness" of society but it's clear that his past has left some lasting trauma on him.

* LoveItOrHateIt: It's either a perfect representation of teenage angst or a pointless book about a whiny annoying little git.
