Show Synopsis

The Catcher in Rye is the ultimate novel for disaffected youth, but it's relevant to all ages. The story is told by Holden Caulfield, a seventeen- year-old dropout who has just been kicked out of his fourth school.

Not what I expected!

I never read this "classic" in high school and now that I'm in my sixties I'm trying to catch up on some of the reading I should have done had I chosen to be a better student. Boy was I disappointed! Page after page, I kept expecting the nugget of wisdom to appear, but it never did. Instead, I found it to be nothing more than the trivial ramblings of a confused kid, Perhaps a more youthful reader would have better understood the author's style and found it to be the "profound" work so many have said it is over the years. As far as I'm concerned, it stunk!
