I never read this book in high school. I wish I did. I am glad I finally got around to reading it. I absolutely loved this book. I loved Holden Caulfield. He was an entertaining narrator, both extremely immature, but also wise beyond his years. I think that’s true of a lot of teenagers. The few teens I am friends with usually surprise me with some of the profound things that come out of their mouths, while being immature at the same time. Holden is a true reflection of this phenomenon. In some ways, this book reminds me of The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath in the sense that we watch a young person slowly unravel and become physically sick trying to make sense of and struggling with societal norms. In other ways, this book reminds me of the South Park episodes where Stan turns 10 and realizes everything is shit. His doctor tells him that he’s a cynical asshole. (It was a great episode, by the way). Holden is cynical and he thinks everything is phony (which reminds me of the phony guy from Family Guy.) Anyway, before I keep getting off track, I think this book is amazing and relevant to society. Holden may not be the most likeable character, but I think the way he sees the world is not unique. I cannot count all the times I’ve felt the way Holden feels. I’ve met people for the first time and thought to myself that he or she doesn’t seem like a real person to me. Like their whole personality is fake, like they are trying too hard to be something. If I didn’t have someone to connect with (like Holden connects with his sister), I’d probably go crazy, too. The world can sometimes be so overwhelming, so full of aggravation and shit and phonies that overthinking can drive just about anyone insane. I am glad this book is still being read in high school, though I think it’s much better to read when you are a little older, too. I suppose that’s probably the same with just about every classic, though. Wonderful read and I’m so glad I finally got around to this one. http://meganm922.blogspot.com/2012/06...
