• I loved it. I haven't read anything like it since. 😊😊😊

      How old were you when you first read it?
    • Beat Covid, Avoid Republicans
    • Linda Joy
      That would have been a very influential time in your life. What did you take away from it at the time? And how has that perception changed over time? Or has it?
  • I never read it.
    • Linda Joy
      I assume you've heard of it. Why did you choose not to read it?
    • bostjan64
      Yes, I've heard of it. All of the controversy around it did draw my attention. When I learned about what all of the hullaballoo was about, I guess my interest waned, as I didn't think it sounded all that spicy.
    • Linda Joy
      I didn't think I'd like it either.
  • I tried to read it a long time ago but didn't find i very interesting. I never finished it.
    • Linda Joy
      I felt that way about The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. I didn't see what the big deal was about it when I first read it as a grade schooler. I can appreciate it a little more after learning what a genius Mark Twain was!
    • notyouraveragedummy
      That is probably the case. I think that "Catcher" was an adolescent male perspective. I may appreciate it more if I read it now. However, for the past two decades, I've only been reading non-fiction, so that's not likely.
    • Linda Joy
      I never re-read Tom Sawyer. And I probably won't read "Catcher". I'd probably see a stupid rebellious teen.
  • I have not read it. I know it is supposed to be a coming-of-age story told from a 17 year old boy's perspective. I have heard about it for years though, so I just ordered a copy from ebay. I will read it soon. 4/19/23

      Let me know if you think I'd like it.
    • Linda Joy
      I wasn't trying to push the book, just looking for perspectives on it. However, I always check for books I can read free online. Here's a link to it, but I haven't checked it out.
    • dalcocono
      That book has been mentioned in lots of movies and tv shows over the years. Once your question reminded me of it, I decided I will read it at last. I'll wait for ebay though. I've already ordered it. I never think to look for free online reading sites.
    • Linda Joy
      That's why I suggested it. And the question was inspired by the quote: "If you want to stop people from becoming like me, don't burn Catcher in the Rye, burn Hustler" -Ted Bundy.
