The Catcher in the Rye - J.D. Salinger - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book The Catcher in the Rye:

Holden's awkward search for something more than the superficial.

My favorite J.D. Salinger quote from the book:

"Make sure you marry someone who laughs at the same things you do."

Questions to ponder while reading The Catcher in the Rye:

Is individuality important?

Can you be too honest?

My thoughts on The Catcher in the Rye:

Adolescence is such a challenge.

It is particularly challenging if you're awkward.

Holden was a difficult character to like.
