    1. The Catcher in RyeBy J.D. SalingerReview by Zack Emerick When I first began to read The Catcher in the Rye I was hesitant about really “reading” it. I had heard several different opinions about The Catcher in the Rye ranging from absolute torture to being on some peoples top favorites of American novels. As I began to read The Catcher in the Rye, my bias views of book quickly changed directions. As I read deeper into the book, I could not put it down. You can’t help but to become memorized [...]

    2. I thought that this book was going to be amazing or something like that. I still do not really understand why this is as "American Classic," but i thought this book was alright. the story started off with Holden Caulfield introducing himself into the book. as he goes on, he like retells his story not liable to tell what happens, but i tell this, holden is supposed to be a genius. he just gets all the worse luck in the world. like hes been kicked out so many schools, only for his parents to get m [...]

    3. The Catcher in the Rye is a classic book by J.D. Salinger. It is about 17-­year-­old HoldenCaulfield who gets kicked out of school once again. He has to leave the next wednesday which is the beginning of winter break, although he can’t wait that long. He hates everyone at his school, Pencey, including his roommate Stradlater, and the person in the room next to him Ackley. They are all a bunch of phonies according to Holden, just like almost every other person in the whole world. He decides t [...]

    4. Okay, so i'd heard about this book being an american classic. As a lover of all things american i thought, wow this should exceed all expectations. WRONG! I kept reading, though i had the urge to put it down, Sallinger did such a great job of promising you a great finish. The reason you can't keep it down is because it's got such a great reputation, it continuously promises you a great finish and you keep expecting. But it's nothing more than a descriptive memo about how some juvenile bunked off [...]

    5. To sum it up I thought it was "eh". Reflecting back, the story gives you a unique perspective of a young boy reacting to his environment. Now, for my opinion: I'm not a big fan of the language, and got pretty bored with the main character being bored, tired, drunk, and impatient with everyone Overall, just not my kind of book. I would not recommend it to my friends.

    6. DIGRESSION - that one word perfectly describes this book. If you’ve read this book, you’ll get it. Holden Caulfield has one serious case of ADD and is possibly bi-polar. But he's an interesting, endearing, and relatable character. This book is a class and a must read. Ahead of its time.

    7. The Catcher in the Rye was written by J.D. Salinger and was great because it related closely to the rebellion of young people today. When young people reach a certain age they have a tendency to start to rebel against many things accepted by society. It has a large deal to do with them trying to find their place in society and becoming more independent. Rebellion is a normal reaction for people to feel when they reach a certain age because it allows them to dictate their own destiny and not let [...]

    8. In the book The Catcher and the Rye by J.D. Salinger, the main character Holden’s main conflict is against himself. He isn’t very good at being social able with people, and therefore he is kind of shunned. He likes to combat his own insecurity of himself by making stories about people and calling then “phony”. “Old Selma Thurmer-she was the headmaster’s daughter-…She probably knew what a phony slob he was.” (17) In general, Holden doesn’t feel like he should like the headmaster [...]

    9. I usually adore books, no matter the plot line, no matter the characters. But for some reason I can’t even begin to talk about how much I detested reading this book. And I feel blasphemous even thinking about that. I know it’s a classic book and both of my parents have spoken wonders about it. But still, oh lord I hated it.I liked the plot, I really did. I enjoyed the whole idea of this boy who runs away from school and spends a few nights in New York. But I really could barely finish the bo [...]

    10. I read this fist as a high school freshman. When I saw it was required reading for my (almost) freshman daughter, I decided to try it again. I had only a vague recollection of having not been impressed the first time around. This time, I think I understood more fully the main character, Holden Caulfield. He is truly a cynic, as some other adolescents of his circumstances might be. Privileged, bouncing from one boarding school to another, he criticizes just about everything. But his occasional se [...]

    11. We read it for school so i totally procrastinated reading it until like the night before the test, but i didn't end up finishing it. However, it was so good that i actually ended up finishing it EVEN THOUGH i had already had my test and it was of no use to me. but was really good and its a real coming of age story and a great look inside the mind of a teenager. its great and highly entertaining. its all the things you wish you could say to people.

    12. I think that this book was AMAZING ! It's my favorite book now because it's really interesting. While i was reading this amazing book i was kind of mad at the same time because they never made a movie about the book and i think it would be very cool if they did. But the Author doesn't let them because they made a movie about 1 of his books and they kind of " messed " it up because they cut scenes out to make the movie short

    13. This is one of my favorite books, and I love to revisit it. It taught me that the world is not A+ or bust, and that the F is substuantially worse than the C-, that the C- is applaudable and the F is shameful. That seems circular and obvious, but there's a genuine spirit to the character of the book I suppose I relate to You're all a bunch of flitty phonies!

    14. Re-read this on a bit of a whim (actually, found it buried at the bottom of my daughter's school bag, so I thought I'd give it another go). Rambles on and on with its incessant whining and complaining. Still. There are no resolutions, only self-indulgence. Bad dialogue, little emotion, boring and so on and so on.

    15. this was an amzing plotless story about a tennager wandering new york borde planing to run away because he he got thron out of a bordeing school and dosent want to tell his parents yet he meets his little sister and is sad in the end he gose home and tells his parents they best thing to say it the truth

    16. This is my second time reading it, and I must say that this book was way before its time. It tackles subjets that weren't talked about around that time. Very well written and I will probably read it again in a couple more years.

    17. i think this book was boring. i kinda skimmed through the book because i found the beginning boring. i also didnt understand what was going on in the book at all. in the beginning he was at school and thats all i know.

    18. So this is one of my all time favorite books. It was never a required reading for me in school but it was for a lot of my friends so I decided to read it anyway and fell in love with it. I try and read it once a year.

    19. Maybe it is that I had too high expectations for this novel, i dont know. Even if I found it extremely appealing at first, I think it lost the main point in the story, there was just too much rambling on and random situations. Liked it a lot, anyway.

    20. Just Wow I read it in my freshman year from English and the book was blank so it wasn't that appealing but as soon as you start reading till the end you will love that book. Another great classic that I won't forget.

    21. When I finished the book I wished here was an authority that could give me my time back. Not only I didn't learn anything from it, but the character of the book got me so annoyed, I wanted to slap him and just continue my life and completely forget about it!

    22. This one was really sad - about an adolescent's troubled descent into madness. I thought the author captured the boys impulsivity, alienation and moral questioning really well. Sounds depressing - but somehow not - really good internal dialogue.

    23. An American classic and I honestly couldn't stand it. I felt like it was pretentious and missing a plot. I feel like there are so many better novels and storys in the world.

    24. An original book about a high school kid who gets flunked out of his fourth school and his journey to/in New York as he gets closer to home and the result of it.

    25. Two hundred pages of a lying, complaining, depressed teenage boy. Not my cup of tea. It may have been groundbreaking when published, but I found it hard to relate to the main character.

    26. Though this is perhaps only good up to a certain age, its value can't be denied. Aren't we all still looking for where the ducks go anyway? or looking for a red hunting hat?

    27. Well written at any rate, other than that, it is a self-indulgent, self-centered, self-righteous piece of trash. No wonder the baby-boomers love it.

    28. i read this in 5th grade. may have been the last book i read. come to think of it, i may not have even finished this one

    29. Another classic I read late. I think they mean more reading them now however. It's nice to just enjoy the story.
