Not what I expected!

by Anthony M on May 1, 2014

I never read this "classic" in high school and now that I'm in my sixties I'm trying to catch up on some of the reading I should have done had I chosen to be a better student. Boy was I disappointed! Page after page, I kept expecting the nugget of wisdom to appear, but it never did. Instead, I found it to be nothing more than the trivial ramblings of a confused kid, Perhaps a more youthful reader would have better understood the author's style and found it to be the "profound" work so many have said it is over the years. As far as I'm concerned, it stunk!

Great Bok

by MisterB on Nov 29, 2013

Everyone knows this book by now. I ordered a copy as I could not find my copy and wanted to read it again. If you don't know Salinger it is time to learn and read all his books.

Great Novel

by LiteratureMan on Apr 25, 2013

I'm always amazed how Christians find this book so offensive. Ironically, their objections are precisely why I think it is great. Holden Caulfield is morally bankrupt. But rather than suppress this sort of literature, I think it's all the more important to put and keep it in circulation. There are real Holden Caulfields in this world and they need compassion, not condemnation. His is a very human voice. It is a testament to Salinger's genius to have created such a human character. I actually teach this novel to high school students, and many come away feeling they've grown as human beings because of it. That is the epitome of great literature!

Amazing & short for a classic.

by RANDOLPH R on Dec 15, 2011

The action takes place over a short period of time and is full of repeats of stupid kid stuff but remarkably hip for a boy so young. It was a neat read and I enjoyed it this second time around. There was much more to it than I recalled.

The Catcher in the Rye

Zakkyzak-I read it in high school and again when I was about 35 and I agree with you completely. I am a writer and a total bibliophile and this is one of those cases when people don't understand something so they say it's brilliant because they don't want anyone to think they "don't "get it." It's ... Read more

Catcher vs. Mockingbird vs. 1984 vs. Gatsby!!!

If The Catcher in the Rye, To Kill a Mockingbird, 1984, and The Great Gatsby were all tossed into a literary cage-fighting match together, which book would emerge as the victor? To make this interesting, let's include The Hunger Games, which isn't a literarly classic like the others but IS about ... Read more
