'The Catcher in the Rye' is considered a modern classic. It is one of those books that many people cite as life changing or as a massive influence. It is a bible of youthful discontent, an icon of teenage rebellion. Holden Caulfield, the protagonist is as disillusioned with the world as young people have always been. This is one of those 'should read' books, and it's completely easy to devour, which is always a bonus for books you can feel obliged to read. Get it along with 'Franny and Zooey'. -
