Catcher in the Rye
Holden Caulfield is a sixteen year old who
flunks out of yet another boarding school and
spends several days wandering New York City
before Christmas. Caulfield is searching
for what makes him happy, and this
draws in the reader because it is a search
familiar to all humanity. A story of great depth
and struggle that is highly recommended.

Reader's comments about this book
This is my favorite book of all times. Holden's comic cynicism and pessimism make it a fast, enjoyable, and meaningful read.

I love reading it. I repeat it every year during Christmas time. I used it to improve my practical English. When reading I feel like the author is right in front of me with his facial expression and all. When I feel lonely ,the book is my loyal company. I have around twenty copies of it with me to ensure easy reach and ready available at all time. Full of descriptions. The creator is a real story teller. It makes me laugh and I feel a part of the story.

This book is quite intriguing because the author takes an interesting viewpoint as a teenagener. Holden goes through life reflecting upon the activites in his life.
