    Story
    "Listen to the book elsewhere. Audible should offer the book ."

    I was disappointed by this book. I am 66 years old and I read the book in school. I loved it then and still do. I see Holden as a bright kid with learning differences who also is suffering from the family tragedy of his brother's death. Who wouldn't be depressed and unable to concentrate on subjects that aren't easy? His father is a lawyer and one can imagine that Holden's strength in English is inherited. His observations are those of a sensitive person in a world that isn't prepared for him. He struggles but believes that he should be macho for his audience.
    The author of this survey doesn't like Holden. He sees him as an unreliable narrator. I find this to be superficial, exactly the attitude that Salinger was railing against.
    This book will serve as crib notes notes for a "C" student. But if you want an "A" go listen to Salinger tell the story, and learn to love The Catcher in the Rye" whose heart, I believe is in the right place.

    "To those that have read this book"

    I really enjoyed the essay and questions at the end. Chapter 31-33. I recommend that you read the book and then listen to this audiobook.
