My favorite class in high school was always English, because I was usually interested in what we were reading.  One book I always wanted to read for English class was The Catcher in the Rye.  I never got to read it for English.  And in return most of my friends complained.  Who could blame them?  Reading for pleasure is always much more enjoyable than reading for duty.  About a year after I graduated high school, I found myself reading The Catcher in the Rye.  …

not a bad story, but the "independence" theme gets a little trite

I hated this book in high school. I know some people love it, but I couldn't get past how annoying the narrator is. I hated him, and that pretty much ruined the reading experience for me.

this was a good book. on some levels. but for the most part it was overly emo, and way too dark to actually make people want to read it. the main character is very depressing and makes life seem absolutely unbearable. i liked it, for the most part, but it deffinately couldve been a lot better.

I remember reading this and thinking it was a decent book but not really understanding why everyone had made such a big deal out of it.

I am just one of those people who never much liked this work.

I had to read it for school more than once. There is a moral lesson there somewhere, but I enjoyed reading out loud. It provided opportunity.

classic, thought provoking, real, timeless what else is there to say?

Something about this book just gives me chills and shows me something inside myself (and all of us i'm sure) that is creepy. What if one little switch in our brain was turned off? This is what.

WARNING SOME SPOILERS      This is a timeless story of a boy who runs away to New York to find himself and purpose among the people living in New York.

One of the most interesting scenes is when he hires a prostitute and attempts to just have her be there …
