The Catcher in the Rye By J. D. Salinger
The Catcher in Rye is the final novel for disaffected youth, nevertheless it’s related to all ages. The story is informed by Holden Caulfield, a seventeen-year-old dropout who has simply been kicked out of his fourth faculty. All through, Holden dissects the ‘phony’ points of society, and the ‘phonies’ themselves: the headmaster whose affability is dependent upon the wealth of the mother and father, his roommate who scores with ladies utilizing sickly-sweet affection.
Lazy in fashion, stuffed with slang and swear phrases, it’s a novel whose curiosity and enchantment comes from its observations relatively than its plot intrigues (in standard phrases, there’s hardly any plot in any respect). Salinger’s fashion creates an impact of dialog, it’s as if Holden is chatting with you personally, as if you too have seen by the pretences of the American Dream and are rising up unable to see the level of residing in, or contributing to, the society round you.
Written with the readability of a boy leaving childhood, it offers with society, love, loss, and expectations with out ever falling into the clutch of a cliche.
