Holden Caulfield is a dropout who has just been kicked out of his fourth school. Navigating his way through challenges of growing up, Holden dissects the 'phony' aspects of society, and the 'phonies' themselves: the headmaster whose affability depends on the wealth of the parents, his roommate who scores with girls using sickly-sweet affection.

Description
Author BiographyJ.D. Salinger was born in 1919.

The Catcher in the Rye was his first and only novel, published in 1951. It remains one of the most translated, taught and reprinted texts, and has sold some 65 million copies.

The Catcher In The Rye
J D Salinger

The Catcher in the Rye is the ultimate novel for disaffected youth, but it's relevant to all ages. The story is told by Holden Caulfield, a seventeen- year-old dropout who has just been kicked out of his fourth school. Throughout, Holden dissects the 'phony' aspects of society, and the 'phonies' themselves: the headmaster whose affability depends on the wealth of the parents, his roommate who scores with girls using sickly-sweet affection.

Lazy in style, full of slang and swear words, it's a novel whose interest and appeal comes from its observations rather than its plot intrigues (in conventional terms, there is hardly any plot at all). Salinger's style creates an effect of conversation, it is as though Holden is speaking to you personally, as though you too have seen through the pretences of the American Dream and are growing up unable to see the point of living in, or contributing to, the society around you.

Written with the clarity of a boy leaving childhood, it deals with society, love, loss, and expectations without ever falling into the clutch of a cliche.

Amazon.co.uk Review:

5.0 out of 5 stars Although I have read this book 3 times in earlier years, 22 Dec 2007
I found it full of new surprises this time around as I read it for a class. I can identify greatly with the main character, Holden Caulfield, as he
roams through the streets of New York, looking for anything to give him some self confidence in his life. You can't help but feel sorry for him
as he puts on facades of swearing and acting tough to compensate for yearning and loneliness. He is expelled from his school, and
decides to leave several days early and spend some time in New York city before he faces the music of explaining his recent mishaps to
his parents. Holden encounters all sorts of situations in the few days before he finally goes home, all of which are detailed in this book. J.D.
Salinger writes a wonderful representation of what a teenage boy feels inside many times throughout his life, searching for acceptance,
and self realization all in one step. The symbolizm which gives the book its title is masterful and is one of the more analyzed aspects of this
American classic novel. I would rate this novel very high on a list for young adults, but would advise against for those under the age of 16
because of the profanity. Pick it up if you havent already and I promise that you wont be able to put it down!!
