“The Catcher in the Rye” – J. D. Salinger

There was something very Woody Allen-like about the book. So if you enjoy his movies & the way the dialogues flow, you’ll surely like this story. It simply reads like the screenplay of the movie “Wonder Wheel”. Nevertheless, the main character is hardly able to build up relateability & there’s not much happening throughout the entire story.

For being such a celebrated classic, I didn’t really get much out of it though. Yes, the style is swift & flows with ease, but that’s pretty much it to me. It’s not un-enjoyable, but not anything I’d suggest to a friend of mine either. I’d also highly argue with it being rated as a “must read” among the ranks of “1984” or “Fahrenheit 451”.
