The Catcher in the Rye

J.D. Salinger

Favourite Quote: “That guy Morrow was about as sensitive as a goddam toilet seat”

Review: The perfect novel for anyone feeling lost in life. To describe this book in one word I would use the word angsty. Giving us the perspective of a rebellious teenager at ends with those around him and struggling to find his sense of place and identity. Salinger’s novel will engross you from start to finish as you can’t help but connect and empathise with the struggles of this adolescent struggling to leave his childhood and enter the adult world. Well-paced and written in the language of a defiant teenager it is hard to classify this novel as anything other than a classic.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
