    I might have already posted in this thread but didn't want to take the time to search 20 pages worth to find out. if I have indeed already posted, I trust I said something very much like this: catcher in the rye is vastly overrated, and for the life of me I cannot see what the hubbub is about. its right up there with moby dick in terms of it being a major disappointment!

    Well,I remember liking it, specially the boys language, and it was a influence on other books about rebellious and lost teens.

    im all for books about rebellious and lost teens, but I think the book didn't succeed to the extent that it failed to make holden a likeable or sympathetic character.
