Book Review: The Catcher in the Rye

The Catcher in the Rye

by J.D. Salinger

A good and quick read, something I should have read long ago. It keeps popping up on must read lists and I keep saying, I need to read it. A few months ago a co-worker gave me a copy “I don’t want it, it was my exes and you read.” Well it sat on my shelf for a few months. Finally as my vacation week was winding down I picked it up and read it. I could see how it was a big book for its time, like Plastic Age or Tropic of Cancer. But time and “our sliding morals” (registered trade mark of conservative America) tend to make the book pretty mild in shock value.
