In an effort to escape the hypocrisies of life at his boarding school, sixteen-year-old Holden Caulfield seeks refuge in New York City.

Anyone who has read J.D. Salinger's New Yorker stories ? particularly A Perfect Day for Bananafish, Uncle Wiggily in Connecticut, The Laughing Man, and For Esme ? With Love and Squalor, will not be surprised by the fact that his first novel is fully of children. The hero-narrator of THE CATCHER IN THE RYE is an ancient child of sixteen, a native New Yorker named Holden Caulfield. 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 boy himself is at once too simple and too complex for us to make any final comment about him or his story. Perhaps the safest thing we can say about Holden is that he was born in the world not just strongly attracted to beauty but, almost, hopelessly impaled on it. There are many voices in this novel: children's voices, adult voices, underground voices-but Holden's voice is the most eloquent of all. Transcending his own vernacular, yet remaining marvelously faithful to it, he issues a perfectly articulated cry of mixed pain and pleasure. However, like most lovers and clowns and poets of the higher orders, he keeps most of the pain to, and for, himself. The pleasure he gives away, or sets aside, with all his heart. It is there for the reader who can handle it to keep.

The Catcher In The Rye

"The Catcher in the Rye" is a well written novel. This book tells the story of a boy, Holden, who spends a day in New York City. The theme of this novel is coming of age novel due to the fact that Holden is experiencing real life situations that affect him in his transformation to adulthood. I dug deep into this novel because I am able to relate to the same situation Holden is experiencing. I am able to understand Holden vividly because we are around the same age and I am also experiencing events that help me enter adulthood. This book is not only meant for students but can also be an enjoyable piece of novel for adults. When reading this book, you must grasp the contents thrown at you to be able to understand the entire novel. This book is quite interesting because it can have a different impact on different people; one person may obtain something out of it and another person may discover it to be something completely different. By the end of the novel, I guarantee you will be able to acquire something from this novel.

Although I was concerned about reading this book because i figured it would be boring, it exceeded all expectations. And that is saying something from a highschooler who isn't easily impressed! It's a fantastic books!
