Catcher in the Rye.
Catcher in the Rye. | J D Salinger
Anyone who has read J. D. Salinger's New Yorker stories - particularly A Perfect Day for Bananafish, Uncle Wiggily in Connecticut, The Laughing Man, and For Esme - With Love and Squalor, will not be surprised by the fact that his first novel is full of children. The hero-narrator of The Catcher in the Rye is an ancient child of sixteen, a native New Yorker named Holden Caulfield. Through circumstances that tend to preclude adult, secondhand description, he leaves his prep school in Pennsylvania and goes underground in New York City for three days. The boy himself is at once too simple and too complex for us to make any final comment about him or his story. Perhaps the safest thing we can say about Holden is that he was born in the world not just strongly attracted to beauty but, almost, hopelessly impaled on it. There are many voices in this novel: children's voices, adult voices, underground voices-but Holden's voice is the most eloquent of all. Transcending his own vernacular, yet remaining marvelously faithful to it, he issues a perfectly articulated cry of mixed pain and pleasure. However, like most lovers and clowns and poets of the higher orders, he keeps most of the pain to, and for, himself. The pleasure he gives away, or sets aside, with all his heart. It is there for the reader who can handle it to keep.

I totally agree, there are many books, once finished I wish I could talk to the author. Beartown, Shantaram, Behind the beautiful forevers, a thousand splendid suns, Game of Thrones,Sea of poppies,I am pilgrim,1Q84,Sherlock Holmes, Sacred Games, American Gods are some of the books that arose this desire, at least these are the ones I can remember right now,I am sure there were many more.

What are the books that makes you feel this way? Do share!!

Paperback.Propensity The Catcher in the Rye itself, The Outsiders, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, Siddhartha, Frankenstein are some I can think of. 2w

I think there are two camps when it comes to Catcher; those who love it, and those who think Holden is an irredeemably #obnoxiouscharacter

I'm firmly in camp two. Where do you sit?

#AuldLangReads @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

MicrobeMom I haven‘t read since I was 16. At 16 I was definitely Camp 1. Though, now that I am adult and way beyond 16, I imagine I would be in Camp2. 1mo

OriginalCyn620 I need to reread this...I read it in high school but don‘t remember it much! 1mo

TheKidUpstairs @MissAimz_55 @AmyG @sprainedbrain @Reagan @zezeki testing a theory; how old were you when you first read Catcher? 1mo
sprainedbrain I was 17 the first time. 1mo
Reagan @sprainedbrain probably early 20s. I don‘t recall trying as a teenager although I might have. I haven‘t tried since either, I‘ve considered it but I think he would irritate me even more now close to 40! 1mo
vivastory I reread Catcher a couple of years ago at 39 & loved it more than when I first read it at 18. I felt a new appreciation for Holden's youthful idealism. 1mo
xicanti Camp One. Holden‘s insufferability is largely fuelled by loneliness and grief. He‘s fascinating even when he isn‘t admirable. 1mo
vivastory @xicanti I agree. Plus, I have yet to meet an adolescent who isn't insufferable to some degree. I know I was. 😂 1mo
Scochrane26 Camp 2. I read this as a adult, but I think I wouldn‘t have liked it even as a teen. 1mo

AmyG I was in my early 20‘s. 1mo
Kimberlone I think there‘s a third category where you still like the book but are able to recognize Holden‘s insufferability. I work with teens and often have conflicting feelings of empathy and extreme annoyance with them. 1mo

I read this the first time about a decade ago. I‘m subbing in a class that is reading it. I thought I might like it this time, but I don‘t. I don‘t like stream of consciousness writing, and while I acknowledge Holden‘s pain, I still think if he stopped whining, he would feel better. He drives me crazy.

1. At times I just reach that stage while reading a book wherein I don't feel like turning the page and continuing with the narrative. I then simply pick another book from my TBR list and keep on going.

2. When it starts to feel like I'm forcing myself to get the book over with just for the sake of completing it.

What sticks out about Holden was how quickly he described his younger siblings as intelligent people. Some teens my age are quick to scoff at kids: they forget they once were a child too. But Holden, as edgy as he seems, never lets go of childhood. Maybe a defense mechanism after his brother's death. Maybe it's common in all teens. I wonder: does he still wish to save Allie, or has he gone too deep,and now tries to catch himself from the fall?

Other than the swear words which I skipped everytime, I really did 😂, I thought Holden was a decent kid. He really was. Good thing he decided to eventually turn his life around after the Author made it look like he really was heading for a very bad fall. I wish I read this when I was still young and in school back in Ireland. But I wouldn't add this book to the Top 100 though.

Holden pulled me into his life and held me captive in his thoughts, his worries, his hypersensitivity, his anxiety, his depression, his heartache, his drunkenness, his loss of self, his search for identity and purpose, and his strangeness.
The 3 day directionless journey was brutal- that much smoking, that much drinking, that much profanity, that much loss, that much disconnect, that much loneliness- it was a spiral into emptiness.👇🏽

Nute It felt real and profound, it felt raw and humorous, it felt young and old, it felt distant yet somehow uncomfortably close, familiar and relatable. I don‘t have to be an angsty teen to know discontent and rebellion...to be questioning the realness or the phoniness of folks and their intentions...to be seeking some semblance of truth in a world of hurt, confusion and beauty.👇🏽
7mo
Nute Salinger is a gift of an author as he helps to explain humanness and gives voice to a soul in the dark. I certainly wish he were a terrific friend of mine so that I could call him up on the phone whenever I feel like it (‘you know the quote‘).
Highly recommended!

I am not a “white, relatively affluent, permanently grouchy young man with no real problems at all” and I love Catcher in the Rye and so does my husband who also isn‘t a young white male. People love books for other reasons and that‘s cool. Choose to hate it or love it. I dislike Wuthering Heights and that‘s ok.

Eggs Agreed. Why must humans categorize or politicize groups... 7mo
Skyrimir I love this book and always will. I recognize all the above about Holden, but I also recognize that as teens we don‘t realize all the privilege we may have. Holden thinks he knows everything, but I think it‘s the reader‘s place to see how much he needs to grow. 7mo

Catcher in the Rye is a classic that I first read in high school and felt so much relation. I‘ve read it so many times and can never get sick of it!
Also in high school, the only books I borrowed from the library was of course, Sarah Dessen! I just love love love her books and still read them! 💏
And of course Percy Jackson, brought my love for Greek mythology to life! ⚡️ #24in48

TheChipMan I liked Catcher in the Rye, i gave it 3 stars because I absolutely hated the ending. It seemed like it should have been a sequel. Glad you like it tho. It‘s one of those books that I wanted to like so much but just didn‘t. I love the character Holden, love him but loving the main character wasn‘t enough for me through the story 7mo
EccentricElephantNovels @TheChipMan I agree there should‘ve been more to the ending or a sequence but like I said, I felt like I could relate so much to the book/Holden and that‘s what made me fall in love with it. ☺️ 7mo

Straight off the bat, I actually liked the narrator (Holden Caulfield). He‘s a bratty, rebellious teenager with a tendency towards profanity, tangential thinking, and wild exaggeration. Salinger‘s characterisation was superb; it sounded so much like the diary of a teenage boy, you‘d believe one had written it...

An emotional, ecstatic journey. What a classic. The jokes, the sadness, the deeply driven psychic issues. It‘s such an easy read, yet profound, engaging both the heart and the mind. This is pop culture slash literature slash art at its finest. The story is aimless, and wandering, but never unsure of itself. Salinger taps into what it is to be human so adeptly—even 65 years after its pub date it still feels current and totally recognizable....

I can't believe I waited so long to read this book.
After first hearing of it as a teenager in American teen mags, I finally read this novel at the age of 46! It was brilliant & I thoroughly loved it! I can see why so many young Americans enjoyed it, even as a mature adult I found it funny and so very honest. Holden is very relatable to us all

Clutterbucks_Queen When was this copy published? I collect different covers and havent seen this one before! Looks pretty cool! 😍 9mo

rretzler If it makes you feel any better, I‘m closing in on 56 and STILL haven‘t read it! 🤣 9mo
Curiouser_and_curiouser @rretzler Well I think one can relate to it at any age and get a few laughs out if it too, it's only a short book, I think its definitely worth it :) 9mo
Curiouser_and_curiouser @Clutterbucks_Queen sure, as mentioned above, this copy was published in 1958 9mo
SW-T Most welcome 😊 9mo
