The Cather in the Rye - J.D. Salinger
Recently I picked up 'The Cather in the Rye' from Roeland's bookcase. It's one of those books that I knew by name, because it's a classic, but I had no idea what it was about. The title made it sound like a scary Hitchcock movie: this creep lurking in a field of Rye, taking and killing people who wander into it... That was very far off, but after reading, the title does make sense.
The use of language sets the tone and you get taken into Holden's head, as he tells you what he wants to tell you about how he seemed to be derailing (in certain ways) because he has troubles coping with his younger brother's death. While you're reading, you slowly start to interpret what has happened to Holden and what he is going trough. He only tells you stuff from his perception, looking back, as a 17y/o, at himself as a 16y/o. That allows him to do add some insight he has gained since, but especially the adults are shown within the limitations of a teenage boy's view of them and their behaviour. Glad I've read it.
