The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger Book Summary

The "brilliant, funny, meaningful novel" (The New Yorker) that established J. D. Salinger as a leading voice in American literature--and that has instilled in millions of readers around the world a lifelong love of books.

"If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth."

The hero-narrator of The Catcher in the Rye is an ancient child of sixteen, a native New Yorker named Holden Caufield. Through circumstances that tend to preclude adult, secondhand description, he leaves his prep school in Pennsylvania and goes underground in New York City for three days.

The Catcher in the Rye (J. D. Salinger) Book Reviews

Timeless ClassicI recently reread this for the first time since high school, a true classic..Score: 5/5

One to come back to!I love this book, especially coming back to it again and again. There’s no more serious disillusionment than realizing the nuance of the world and that everything isn’t so simple, no matter what lens you use. And through the eyes of the disaffected teen Holden Caulfield, JD Salinger helps everyone feel a little less sure of themselves, and a little more jaded. Or, maybe, a little less, depending on where one is in life..Score: 5/5

Worst protagonist in any novel I’ve ever readIt isn’t just that this protagonist is unlikeable, which I typically associate as a net positive rather than a net negative, but instead it’s that this character is without a doubt the most annoying protagonist I’ve ever had the displeasure to read. It was an absolute chore to get through this tedious and aggravating book, I only finished it to ward off anyone who’d try to tell me it gets better by the end— which it does not. While I understand the overall message the author was attempting to convey, the reality is that the protagonist is just plain annoying, and you have to deal with this annoyance for 500 pages. The irony here is that he’s mostly annoying because he spends the entirety of this novel complaining about everything, and now I’m complaining about his complaining. So infuriating!.Score: 2/5

Amazing ⭐️⭐️👑This is a book I was always hearing you should read and it would change your life. I read Catcher In The Rye on my 18th birthday. It did change my life!! It changed my life because I had always felt different an outsider. I felt like the character was speaking to me. I just related so much and I never expected that. I love the beauty of the writing and Holden Claufield , so imperfect that he is perfect!! I love this book so much, great literature that will move you❤️❤️❤️.Score: 5/5
