Publisher Description

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.

a true classic

the Rye captures the angst felt by every child passing through adolescents on their way adulthood. it resonates with everyone who reads it.

It was okay

I liked hearing a different perspective on how a person may think but I felt like nothing big happened throughout the whole book.

Favorite book of all time

I recently re-read this. We read it in school but it never really stuck with me. Honestly the whole time I was reading I kept waiting for something major to happen or a plot twist. It never did. It seemed to just be the normal day to day of a teen. Full disclosure I have bi polar disorder and other mental illness. And when the realization came at the end and the sudden rush came over me at once I cried til I couldn’t breathe. No book has ever related to me so perfectly and no other ever could. If you start to feel like the book isn’t really going anywhere just keep going, I promise you will see. Especially if you suffer from mental illness. 20/10 would recommend!
