Reviews for Catcher in the Rye
It was ... ok
To be honest I didn't finish this book, I had about 50 pages to go and just gave up. I'm not sure if it was because this story was hyped up a lot before I read it or I just didn't get it. The story follows a young boy, Holden Caulfield, just after he has been kicked out of school. It is meant to be a coming of age story but I just was not engaged, considering it is quite a short novel and I still didn't finish it. The story was just flat, it wasn't for me at all. If you like coming of age novels I would recommend the Perks of being a Wallflower instead. by KIRILLY OREILLY
