I’ve been wanting to read this book for quite some time and was glad I had a chance to finally experience what so many people talk about.
One of my favorite things about the book was that it took place partially in New York City (which is my new obsession). I was great reading about the city so long ago and how so many things haven’t even changed.
It’s a great story of turmoil, coming of age, angst and fear – a young man growing up, trying to find his calling and place in the world.
For a good part of the book I was wondering where it was going and what the point was, but yet I still enjoyed. Holden’s journey through discovery and different cities, was something all adolescents can relate to – the search for purpose and finding their way through new experiences and letdowns.
This book is definitely every one should read and experience, young or old. I’m glad I read it and wouldn’t be surprised if it turns into a book I re-read in the future.
