    My thoughts exactly, and I read it when I was a teenager. Dude is a pretentious fricking wimp, which may be the point, but it's a shitty point and a waste of paper.

    Yeah I think that should be the litmus test for anyone who reads regularly. You accept that CitR is a dogshit angsty mess of a book with no interesting characters and a point that there is no point. South Park had the best take on this piece of shit

    Been to NYC a few times and knew a bunch of the places the Holden character of talks about. It really helps one appreciate the novel. It's also a bit heavy on subtextual clues. I can imagine it's hard to wrap your head around as a young person or someone who is learning the language. If I ever have a kid I might name him Ally.

    Holden is a literary representation of the culture of IQfy. I don't know why you guys dislike him. He holds a mirror to this site.

    I liked it when I was in highschool and felt some similarities to the character's general malaise.

    This is not a book about teenage angst. It is a book about the agony of pedophilia

      yep, the character was a molestation victim and the teacher he likes tries to molest him

        He also has latent feelings of pedophilia himself. He is distressed by the fact that children go through puberty (Salinger was himself attracted to young girls)

    The main character is a teenager, how fricking surprising. Nah but seriously this comment gets passed around way too much to dismiss things. Why is teenage drivel always bad? If you are telling a coming of age story especially as is the case with this one where there's reluctance towards doing so by the protagonist, doesn't it make a whole lot of sense that the character would be childish and cringe..

    Bet you are a real refined and awesome dude.

      Coming of age stories only work when the character(s) mature and grow, not wallow in their angst and pretentiousness. Portraying that is fine, but if that's all you're portraying then there's no point, teenagers let everyone know how angsty and self-inportant they are without the help of a book just fine.

    >what happened to Holden after?

    He turned into a broken loser, just like everyone else.

    He also finally caught that damn rye

    Anyone who has an issue with this book and Holden as a character is low IQ and has low empathy

      Holden's fear of Antonio is due to his inability to resolve his father raping him; and because of Holden's inability to deal with a healthy gay dad instead of a rapey gay day.

    Pretty much. This waste of paper litter is only rivaled by Pride and Prejudice is its complete lack of any meaningful substance.

    Why didn't he frick the prostitute? Was he gay?

      >Was he gay?
      He only appears to be a straight pedo. He's deeply fearful of gay men, and sympathises with gay boys as other potential victims (not realising they could be into it).

      The prostitute is his own age: too old.

    Anons will bash this shit book, but heap praise on Daria even though it was also written by another one trick pony who lucked into performing his trick at a time when some large fraction of America happened to be in the right collective frame of mind to perceive this boring twaddle as subversive and meaningful. No wonder so many kids these days are fricked in the head when Holden Caufield, Daria Morgendorffer, Rory Gilmore and Lisa Simpson are paraded as role models. At least Angela Chase had something going for her.

    I feel the divisiveness this book creates shows very clearly who has certain sensibilities and who doesn't.

    So if you're one of the latter you'll never get it. That's fine, move on to something else.

    Babby's first critique. There's NOTHING wrong with Catcher in the Rye.
