Book Review of The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

Well for what has been said about this book that it is definitely different. Salinger's writing style is something that you are either going to love or hate. There is no in between with it. It took me longer to read this book that the last time I did years ago because I wanted to give it another chance to tell me the story.

The story that Salinger has place in it is different. It comes from a first person view and there is no theme for the book. This I liked because it left you guessing what was going to happen next. The main character is a high school student who was axed from his school for bad grades. Then the story heads into New York and stays there.

The one thing that I have to say is that the story that Salinger is telling will take you back in time. Not sure what the year the book is set in, I might have missed that. It is back when things were of the old ways of life.

In my opinion, this book is well written and is worth know that when this book came out, it was on the cusp and pushing the paper to the limit of what you could write. All in all, if you can manage the first few pages, meaning giving the style a chance it is a good book to read.

The next book that I am going to be reading is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.
