About this item

Description



About the Book



Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in his sixteen-year-old life, just after he's been expelled from prep school.



Book Synopsis



The brilliant, funny, meaningful novel (The New Yorker) that established J. D. Salinger as a leading voice in American literature--and that has instilled in millions of readers around the world a lifelong love of books.
If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.
The hero-narrator of The Catcher in the Rye is an ancient child of sixteen, a native New Yorker named Holden Caufield. Through circumstances that tend to preclude adult, secondhand description, he leaves his prep school in Pennsylvania and goes underground in New York City for three days.



Review Quotes



A contemporary master--a genius...Here was a man who used language as if it were pure energy beautifully controlled, and who knew exactly what he was doing in every silence as well as in every word.--Richard Yates, New York Times Book Review

In Mr. Salinger we have a fresh voice. One can actually hear it speaking, and what is has to say is uncannily true, perceptive, and compassionate.--Clifton Fadiman, Book-of-the-Month Club News

Salinger's work meant a lot to me when I was a young person and his writing still sings now.--Dave Eggers

We read The Catcher in the Rye and feel like the book understands us in deep and improbable ways.--John Green

Ava - 7 years ago, Verified purchaser
I bought this book for my 14 year old grandson. It was so much easier to order this on-line and have it sent straight to his house, rather than having to go to a bookstore, hope they have a copy, buy it, and take it to him (he lives 45 minutes away). And who doesn't like getting a package in the mail? I will definitely order books thus way again!#
