Book Review: The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

catcherThe Catcher in the Rye (1951) by J. D. Salinger is one of my all-time favorite novels for more reasons than one. First, it’s impossible to put down. The eccentric narration by Holden Caulfield is conversational and comical, despite the more serious undertones to the novel. Second, the character development, symbolism, and approach to deeper, psychological issues makes this a refreshingly more cerebral read than something merely plot-based. I love this book and would read it again.
