J.D. Salinger's much discussed novel is no disappointment. It quietly resonates with a profound understanding of the challenge faced by the youth of that era. I found myself deeply immersed in the experience of the characters.

Not the book I remembered. I just didn't feel like reading about such a troubled kid.

Holden Caulfield is a young person caught in the hold of grief for the death of his sibling who he loved and admired and considered superior to himself. No one identifies his problem, as no one would to this day. He is confused, angry, depressed, totally discouraged, suicidal, and out of control. That's grief for many people. It can knock you out of the running, and last a long time. His parents and the other authority figures in his life feel it best to soldier on, prepare for the future, be involved with life without any understanding that for some, the emotional devastation of the mourning process eliminates the ability to participate as would have been possible if it were not for the fate of grieving.
I think this book, read in the light of grief can help those of any age who are struck and confounded and isolated in the reaction to a significant loss.

Having been told this was a "classic, must-read," maybe my expectations were a little high. I was disappointed at this rambling journey of experimental vernacular which is difficult for anyone raised outside of the USA to connect with. If anyone is minded to read this book, my advice to them would be to purchase the lowest price reader's copy rather than spending 25$+ on a book that is unlikely to be read more than once.

I think I was supposed to love this "classic" book and I really wanted to, but I hated it. Found it very boring, with a shabby story that seemed would never end. By far, the worst book I've ever read YUK!
