John Updike Reviews Franny and Zooey

Novelist John Updike didn't like Franny and Zooey too much, but we don't take him too seriously since he thought "Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters" was actually called "Hoist High the Roof Beam, Carpenters" and since he totally didn't get the fact that Franny lied to her bf about where she got her little green book. Just take it as a reminder to read slowly and carefully.
