A monologue of youth that also ended an erra. <br />
I think this was a great summary of J.D Salinger's work. Although it was originally intended for adults Caulfield's alienated, angst filled, immature character struck a cord with the youth who could empathize with the dating, bullying, and school drama. It's an in depth overview of growing up in an adult world that seems so phony to Holden. As a first time listener, I can't imagine how this classic book misguided Chapman into killing the young and talented John Lennon. I guess everyone's interpretation of literature is different. The narrator did a really good job in narrating this book.
I was given a free copy of this book and have decided to voluntarily leave this review.
