Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Catcher in the Rye (Taschenbuch)
The Catcher in the Rye By Lynn C (A/B)
Showing a lonesomelife of a teen boy, the age of sixteen, by the name of HoldenCaulfield, the author J.D. Salinger writes a novel of Holden¡¯s life in the book called The Catcher in the Rye. The novel is fiction with a form of the first person view. The style of this book is very descriptive in fact. The basic outline of the story is about the freedom the main character, Holden Caulfield, wants, and how he wants to be someone who has meaning. Holden has basically been expelled from many schools. And yet, he is staying at Pencey (school). Well, Holden tries to stay tight in Pencey, but it seems like he cannot stand his life in the dormitory. Eventually, he sneaks out of Pencey after having a fist fight with his roommate, a few days before the vacation, and hangs around on the streets of New York, while visiting his loving sister Pheobe and friends from time to time. And basically everything else in between the main parts, are just very deep descriptions of his memories. Through the story, you will find many problems with Holden and his friends having fist fights, and problems within the society and Holden, where Holden hangs out in night clubs looking for girls to hang around with, and places such as the hotel room he stays in. There are a tremendous number of conflicts in the book, which makes it interesting to read. If you look at the book and think back of the story, you do not really feel that it has any point to it. You would start to wonder why Holden ever even went to a dormitory if he didn¡¯t like it. I mean, all the book talks about is Holden¡¯s pathetic life, and what he goes through at every place. I am sure the book was a story, but I did not find any point in the book. There wasn¡¯t a direct thought of what the book was about after I had finished the book. Even though the format of the story was not quite what I thought, I still think that the book was put a lot of thinking in it. Out all the books I have read in my life, this book is quite different in a way. One of the books I read before was called Death Be Not Proud by John Gunther, which was about a little boy who had cancer and died, it was a quite depressing biography of a little boy. The reason I am comparing it the with The Catcher in the Rye is because, it only describes basic thoughts in a regular way, but The Catcher in the Rye takes every event and deeply describes every bit of it. Not only that but also some subjects the main character, Holden Caulfield, talks about leads to other things in his life that relates to it. So, it is like branches on a tree, one leading to another. I found that confusing for me, because while I was reading the book, I did not know what to focus on, so that I can comprehend. On the other hand, I slightly did find it interesting for me to read in a way. While I was reading through, I seemed to have enjoyed the deep descriptions of Holden¡¯s life, but one thing I seriously did not really enjoy reading in every other sentence, were the curse words the author slipped in. Every other sentence of this book had curse words slipped in to them. I found that part inappropriate for young readers to read. Over all, I think the author put a load of thought into every paragraph of the book, but I don¡¯t think he mainly focused on the format of the book. Because, if you read through the book, you seem to enjoy it with much interest since it is really descriptive, but once you finish it, you ask yourself, what was the point? I mean, the plot and setting was all great, but what about the ending? The Catcher in the Rye does not seem to leave a memorable thought to the reader. If the author would have put a little more effort on the basic format of the story with reasoning, I think the book would have been one of my favorite books. It seems like the author enjoyed describing every thought of the book with much effort and time. I recommend The Catcher in the Rye to high school students with a book rating of eight out of ten.
