Controversial when published in 1951, The Catcher In The Rye quickly achieved a cult following, and its protagonist Holden Caulfield became an icon for teenage rebellion.
⚈ “I have read this book every 2-3 years since I was a teenager and Holden Caulfield is still one of my all-time favourite anti-heroes. Many of the book’s characters & their traits are so recognisable. I heart you Holden, although it worries me that as I get closer to 40 years old I still find you so relatable xx. ” – Suzy
⚈ “An advantage of reading a classic some decades after it’s been written is the ability to recognise the influence said work has had on many modern day novels. Felt like I had known this story all my life and absorbed it fully and willingly. A must read.” – Rachel
⚈ “A classic for good reason, loved it!” – Nadine
