Book Review of The Catcher in the Rye

The Catcher in the Rye
reviewed on + 3 more book reviews

I read this in high school and wanted to revisit it. I was disappointed because I found that it did not make the transition to present day very well. As a mental health counselor I did find the presentation of the protagonist's slow desent into an emotional break down well done.I can appreciate why it is considered a classic when considering the time in which it was written.
