The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

The widely acclaimed novel tells the story of 16-year-old Holden Caulfield. After his expulsion from prep school, disillusioned Holden spends two days in New York disgusted by the phoniness of the adult world and ultimately succumbs to a mental breakdown. Upon recovering from the breakdown, Holden recounts his story to the reader.

Comments

  • DamnTheBroccoli: I can see Kieran Culkin as Holden, but it seems almost too similar to his role in Igby Goes Down.
  • SkyFire: We had to read this in high school... I remember very little.
  • DamnTheBroccoli: There's a pretty decent summary as well as character descriptions and chapter by chapter analysis on the Spark Notes site.
  • SkyFire: Thanks!
