The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

Two Stars

This book is so far my least-favorite read this year. I get it…and yet I don’t. Given the shock value it most likely caused when it was published in 1945, I can understand (sort of) why discussing anti-establishment and personal angst in 1960s classrooms would seem relevant at the time. I would like my twenty-one-year-old to read it to get his opinion of what I suspect is a continuing mind-set. But, personally, I’m just checking it off my to-read list…with great relief.
