The Catcher in the Rye ♥♥♥

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger is a book I read recently about 2 weeks ago. I had heard about the books from people before but never had the chance to read it until recently. I found the introduction interesting, the characters and the story. The main character though seemed to be going through some problems of his own and the more I read the more I laughed once in awhile when reading how he would say he didn't like this or he didn't like that. Seemed like every little thing would bother him and how it would kill him. He wasn't a very good student either for he was expelled from school and was afraid of how disappointed his parents were going to be. He didn't go home directly after he got expelled but instead spend some time in New York city where he would call up some friends and want to hang out and do things. But other than that this book is a must read and I don't understand why this book had been banned from the reading lists for students. I think it is a good book to learn about how life can be without having a good education and gives you an aspect of how its like. Thinking you to cool for school is nonsense. So if you're looking for a "classic" this book is the one for you!

So I give it 3 hearts as it says in the title.
