“Old Mrs. Morrow didn’t say anything, but boy, you should’ve seen her. I had her glued to her seat. You take somebody’s mother, all they want to hear about is what a hot-shot their son is.

The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger features the one and only Holden Caulfield: angsty, cynical, tends to call people phonies, a bit of a compulsive liar…depressed, anxious, honest. What I like most about this book is that the protagonist’s voice is so distinct, I wouldn’t blink if Holden turned out to be real person.
