The Catcher In The Rye

By J. D. Salinger

Summary: Holden Caulfield is a young man living in New York that gets kicked out of every private school that his parents send him to. The story is in the perspective of Holden and his viewpoints on the world and the people around him.

“Don’t ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody.”

I liked how the book was written after the fact of the events. Holden is recalling the events and is telling them to someone else months afterwards. I would recommend this novel, but the reader has to pay attention and link everything to how Holden thinks and acts. The reader has to see the bigger picture and remember that this is written from the future.
