The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really wanted to find out what the hype was all about when it came to this book. It was banned due to the offensive language found inside and yeah, almost every page had offensive language or words that were deemed offensive.
Well, it certainly was a great experience reading this book. Holden Caulfield is an extraordinary character. I already knew the ending and read on to see how it went.
Holden is a depressed kid who only sees the pretentious side of everybody and everything. Therefore, he uses the word 'phony' loads of times. He also kept saying many things depressed him.
It's told from the first person point of view. It's also not like any book I've read. Some might call it a depressing book since the protagonist is so pessimistic and all. But I would definitely recommend this book to everyone as it is really thought-provoking.
