I remember the first time I read that book, I was about 15, and I felt really connected to him.
There was something about the whole story that was amusing in a way yet serious.
I think it's just one of those things that are better left as they are

Most of the people in my class complained about it. Calling it stupid. But it touched me. I guess you either hate or love the book. The people who love the book are usually the ones who understand his hurt.

I read the book while on a inter rail trip and frankly I thought it was quite good. The real reason I read it, was because it was referred to in Ghost in the Shell (Laughing Man), it's not the only thing I've checked out thanks to the show.

Sadly, I don't remember much from it nowadays - so I should probably re-read it.

But as for a dumb conclusion, if it's good enough for Kenji Kamiyama - then it is good enough for everyone.

Please at least give J.D.Saliinger's great novel the correct title:
The Catcher IN the Rye.....

Here is a quote from the book.

"Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around-nobody big, I mean-except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff-I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I'd do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be. I know it's crazy"

Ever sing 'comin through the rye as a kid???
"Everybody meets a body, comin through the rye.......??"

Thanks for pointing it out, I just saw "catcher" "rye" and assumed it was right. Should be correct now.

By the way, you wrote J.D.Salinger wrong. : p
