The Catcher in the Rye

Holden Caulfield is one of the most infamous characters in literature; dividing readers between those who detest the angsty teenage boy and those who found a kindred spirit in need of saving. Mourning his brother's death and unable to reach out to anyone he loves, Holden drops out of prep school on an epic journey to find and forgive himself. Holden struggles to accept a world lacking purity and innocence; one that is far too cruel for his own fragile soul. Personally, I fall into the category that fell head over heels in love with the complex character. The Catcher in the Rye is about loss, childhood, and acceptance; a book that explores the worst parts of humanity we all wrestle to see in ourselves. For this reason, it's a read I believe we all need to appreciate and experience.
