I hated that book
There didn't seem to be any central plot, just Holden whining about everything

I read 'Catcher in the Rye' once. I was disappointed to find out that it was about neither baseball nor whiskey.

Holden is my hero. He made me realize that growing up sucks.

You have one of the worst heroes ever. He was one of the worst critical thinkers and decision makers ever, and even though I know the book did this purposefully, I felt like I was becoming stupider by reading it. If you really want to read a good book that is about all the same things of growing up in white suburbia, you should go get "Ordinary People". Its a more realistic and better version of a similar story.

Slightly different opinion: For everyone complaining that Holden was a whiny bitch with white people problems, did you ever stop to think that he was written to be a heavily flawed character?


He was never intended to be a rational person. He was in a damn psych ward, so why would you expect him to be perfectly sane and likeable?

To be perfectly honest, Holden annoyed the shit of me as a character. He has some serious issues when it comes to connecting with people, generally looking for a problem when there isn't one.

Great book, but there is that whole "Holden wants to nail his preteen sister" aspect...

At first, like many people other people stating it on here, Holden annoyed me. Yet when I read it a second time I came to realise that it's not just 'white people problems', but I actually started to like Holden as a character.    
   
Didn't like the actual book though because there was no fucking plot.

I disliked Holden intensely when I first read the book, however looking deeper, I do find some very interesting points, specifically his unwillingness to grow up and let go of innocence hence his sexual confusion. It could be seen as a critique on the sexualization of youth in modern america and Holden emulates that. He may be whiney and annoying but thats probably Salinger's scope on teenagers: angsty and over emotional.

That book is shit.

I'm not going to defend Holden because I know I'll just get a ton of red thumbs and people yelling at me but I just need to say that I'm sad that I seem to be the only person in the world who liked the book and loved Holden...

I prefer the adult version, catch her in the eye.

I have yet to read it, but I hope its something like the Outsiders.

Although, White Fang was more to my liking.

Here's the TL:DR version.
Everybody is a fake cunt, I want to get drunk, don't rape me teacher, I want to get drunk again, hey little sister, lets fuck. I want to get drunk again, oh shit I feel sick, lets run away and live in the forest little sister, no wait, fuck that. Go sit on that merry-go-round, things are probably going to be ok, I still feel sick.

To be fair, his brother did die and he witnessed someone's death.

...pretty traumatizing for a young chap, i believe it justifies everything.

that was the worst book I ever read in my whole life

Man, I remember reading Catcher in the Rye in high school. That, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and Of Mice and Men were the only books I was assigned that I enjoyed.

I think this book made me grow up, reading Holden bitch about a life he fucked up himself made me realize when shit happens I probably caused it so stop fucking around.
