The Catcher in the Rye

Framhli­ kßpu
Little, Brown, 1. maÝ 1991 - 240 sÝ­ur
The "brilliant, funny, meaningful novel" (The New Yorker) that established J. D. Salinger as a leading voice in American literature--and that has instilled in millions of readers around the world a lifelong love of books.
"If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth."
The hero-narrator of The Catcher in the Rye is an ancient child of sixteen, a native New Yorker named Holden Caufield. Through circumstances that tend to preclude adult, secondhand description, he leaves his prep school in Pennsylvania and goes underground in New York City for three days.

Actually the book was required for summer reading. I forgot that Overstock sells books too even some old editions. I am very happy to find this book in paper back format even though the summer is over but just want to keep a copy at home. Read full review
