Short Description for The Catcher in the Rye Holden Caulfield, a seventeen-year-old dropout, has just been kicked out of his fourth school. Throughout, Holden dissects the 'phony' aspects of society, and the 'phonies' themselves: the headmaster whose affability depends on the wealth of the parents, his roommate who scores with girls using sickly-sweet affection.

Reviews for The Catcher in the Rye
The Catcher in the Rye review
I know this is a classic and a lot of people rave about this book.
This book describes and analyses the characters, places and what's happening in that boy's head very well.
However, I was waiting for more story. The moral of the book is either absent or very well hidden. We are so used to some sort of closure in a book, aren't we?
Not bad if you want something philosophical. by Ludaunder review
