CATCHER IN THE RYE review by Kaycee W.
I chose to review the book ‘Catcher in the Rye’ by J.D. Salinger. Most are forced to read this book by order of the school board. This read however was a personal choice. Catcher in the Rye is a novel on an anxious individual that goes by the name of Holden. Holden is quite the character and has much to tell about his life and past life experiences. He attends a boarding school called Pency Prep, and is not too fond of it.
This novel is truly a classic. The genre is fictional, it’s a good story. Insight on ones minds and troubles and life obstacles is quite fascinating. The content was plausible and intellectual from my perspective. I wouldn’t exactly call this one a page turner but its interesting enough to keep you reading it. Catcher in the Rye is sort of an empathetic book; it involves situations that have emotions most go through within their life span. If you’re looking for an uplifting read, I do not recommend you read this book. Catcher in the Rye is rather morose and filled with deep content.
I suggest that a moderately older age group reads this book. I cannot fathom anyone bellow the middle school genre reading this; and or reading this and actually enjoying it. I think that this is a good read for teens because of its philosophical views. I personally enjoyed it to the fullest. If you find the time to read this book I strongly suggest it. J.D. Salinger was a brilliant author; he will be greatly missed amongst the world of literature.
