I'd just like to reply to the comment made by John Goodmen below where he states that young kids (which is a name that I HATE) don't know good books. Well excuse me Mr goodmen but I think that those critics and regulaters that banned the book were not "kids" but the kind of people I can only presume that you deem worthy and literate; Grown ups. That was one huge, and false, generalisation you made and I think it was highly unfair. It's people like you who convince others that all teenagers want to do is steal, have sex and take drugs. Sure some people have written stupid stuff here but not every little girl plays with dolls, not every man in Scotland wears a kilt every day and not every person over the age of 30 knows best.

It seems funny that people find Holden a figure rebelling against a screwed up "phony" society. Throughout the novel Holden is conintuously shown to be as phoney as everyone and everything he seems to despise. He embodies what he hates the most and not many readers see this. But I am sure everyone who might read this will probably think I just don't "get it." I think I get it more than most.

the smoke from his cigarette gets in his eyes and he decides to take a Greyhound bus to California in order to visit his brother D.B. in Hollywood and possibly collaborate with him on writing movie scripts.

1) it was pencey prep, not fencey, but that can just be any grammar mistake. ill let it pass.
2) holden does NOT admire ackley.
3) she knows she sucks at ice skating
4)the thing about him having diahrea from his teachers spaghetti, this has to be a joke. that didnt happen. what happened was mr antolini was sort of stroking holdens head while he splept, naturally, it made holden feel uncomfortable, so he told him he had to go get his bags at the train station. he goes to the train station and sleeps there.
5) he does not write obscene words at the school, he tries to cross them off! hes pissed that someone would write FUCK YOU at a kids school. esp, his sisters school. he goes to the attendence office and writes a note and has them deliver it to his sister, and it tells her to meet him at some diner. in the note he tells her hes going out west to find a job at a ranch, so at the diner, she tells him she wants to go too. he finally realizes how stupid it is. and then he starts telling you about the institution alittle. then it ends.
6)he doesnt go to a greyhound bus. thats another stupid lie.

there are alot more stupid mistakes, but i dont have my book so i didnt want to say what they were because i did not have the real answers ( but i knewe they were wrong...) pretty much, the guy who owns this webpage adn put that shitty summary up there is a dumbass sob who doesnt know shit.

you dumbass. your summaries wrong, i hope no one looks at it.

"Holden then visits a former teacher of his, Mr Antolini. However, he has to leave rather suddenly because the spaghetti served by Mrs Antolini have a devastating effect on his stomach.

In the morning, suffering from diarrhea and vainly attempting to get a lift from the Holland Tunnel to the West, he tries to meet Phoebe at her school. "

- you dumbass. your a stupid fuck for trying to mess other people up. the real reason why holden left is because he was asleep and the teacher was kind of stroking his head. holden felt uncomfortable and left. this spaghetti shit never happened.

I get a big kick out of these people saying they hate the catcher in the rye. I personally dont even consider it a book anymore. The character is that real to me. I think its the same way with the people who dislike it. They probably take offense at his critizism of acne faced kids. If you read his other stories particulary the ones concerning seemore glass you will find an apology for that. I read the book not as an assignment in school but because I occasionally enjoy reading. I dont know how that became such a tabboo thing to admit to.

I'd just finished reading the book (sadly enough, for the first time in my 20 years), and decided to visit this wonderful page. I didn't think it necessary to read the summary, though I did happen to notice the line "...the principal catches him writing obscene words on the school walls..." and nearly disregarded the whole page. Luckily I read on, and I definitely have a bit more insight for Lit class in the morn! Thanks!

Thank you so much for your web page...I REALLY enjoyed reading it. I read everything there was to read. It helped me a lot to understand a little more about the book. I read the book twice and I got a lot more the second time. I love that book, it's my favorite. I really like it cause I love the way he sees everything, life eventhough he critizises too much but I love it. I was kind of worried cause I thought I had gotten too much into it that I was thinking and saying words he would say. It's amazing how it can take you in his own life and feel you completely understand him. Sometimes I wonder if he would think I am "phony" it's kind of funny. I think that the people that think this book sucks need to open up and try to write a better one,...I bet they can't. Holden C., sometimes I wish he could live and meet him. It's incredible how this book has touched me and and gotten to know myself a little more. It great how it has also touched many people and so many people are in love with it and even wish we were part of it and know personally Holden...that's how you know it's a good book, you get totally in touch with it in a way that you can't even express..thanks for you'a amazing and please keep adding stuff. I have one question though...if you can please the end, Holden is in a hospital or something, but what does he mean when he says something about "telling so many people about IT" what is IT? I don't understand and wish to know...thank you and God bless.....Keep it UP!! you inspire us!!!

This page that you have put together was really great. I have enjoyed reading Catcher in the Rye very much and doing some out-of-class research was well worth it. The "summury" at the beggining of your page, I did find well amusing. Reading the other gestbook signatures of how "this page sucks" and the summury being a load of "shit" really, Holden put it himself, "Kills me". Reading this book gave a new meaning to my life. I think that everybody should read CR, because it is an accurate dipiction of a teen age mind. Unknown to me, J.D. is alive and well and still writing, but he dosent publish any of his work, and really dislikes the fact that CR is even out there, because there is so many criticisims about the book. The Cristian Review of the book is a spicific example. This is the same reason there is no picture on the front cover, it was part of the publishing agreement. This page was an excellent aid in getting me into the deeper meaning of the book. Thanx for producing quality materal for people like me to guide themselves by. I will continue to come by this page, and I EXPECT to see more info : ). By the way, to the Kristy-Lee Adams, the only reason you can not fully understand CR is because you are not of the proper age. I can see that you are confused and have been listening to the views of others that can not fully comprehend the meaning of the book. I suggest that when you are older that you read it again and everything will become clear. Please don't deface J.D.'s work unles you can write a better thought-prvoking book book that illistrates the mental workings of a 1950's teen. Well thats all I got to say for now. Thanx!

I have to say this is by far one of the best books I have ever read. The thing that really got me though was the language. The book was written 50 years ago but that dude talks almost exactly like we do. (we=me and the people i hang out with) Stuff like having "...and crap." on the end of a sentence. Goes to prove how things don't really change that much. <br> Anyway I love this book especially cuz it's written so smoothly. It's one of those things where the narrative turns into your own natural train of thought and the events become your own memories. <br> I read this book a few months ago and now I've decided to do a report on it. I read it, forgot about it but it's bubbled up again. It just took awhile to soak in. OK I'll take my comments somewhere else before this turns into an essay. <br> If a body meet a body coming through the rye...

I loved your site, even though I didn't find the thing I was looking for. But I have to argue about your interpretation of the carrousel chapter. I see this scene as a turning point because he stays on the bench without riding with his hat on. Which would mean, for me, that the carrousel is a metaphor for innocence, and he doesn't ride it because he is willing to confront the "phony" world with the protection of the hat, which means not being corrupted...

I recently finished reading Catcher in the Rye for a book report and visited your site in search of help in writing the theme for my report. After reading through your comments and the comments of others, I began to see that there was more to the book than I ever thought there possibly could be. I more I learned about the book, the more thouroghly I began to love it and the message it is giving. Because of your website, I can add Catcher in the Rye to my list of favorites and recommend it to all my friends.

I have just recently finished the book "The Catcher in the Rye." I was let down by the ending. I expected the book to go somewhere and not having a sort-of cliffhanging ending. I would have liked to know what happened between Holden and Jane, and if Holden turned out all right. This web site actually has gotten me more interested in the book by thinking about it in more depth. I have enjoyed reading the different web-site topics. The history and the critics comments were amazing. I am surprised people still view the book negatively because of the language. Great information!! Thanks!

Hello Miss Hooper,

I finally found a page, and now I got to sum it up for ya for the 10 points.

This web page gives you all the information you need to know about the books background, such as it was attempted to ban or censor the book itself because it was thought to be to provoking or risque(think thats spelt right). Also along with basic links it tells you about the book itself such as its location and charecters. This is a great Catcher in the Rye website, and any fan would be proud so see it...well except some poeple in the message board such as the Ginny Charecter may take the book too serisouly.

Hey, i like your page but i think there is a lot of incorrect info. For example, the reason why holden left the appartement of his old teacher, was because he was feeling his head and he thought that he was a flit. So he left. nothing to do with spaghetti.
Also, they did not call police or come close to calling police when holden saw the profanity written on the school walls. Nothing like that happened. He just thought in his HEAD that someone might catch him, but i didn't happen.
Lots of wrong stuff in your reviews. Tell me if i am wrong in email, but it seems pretty much clear to me that there is inconsistency.

Catcher in the Rye is a college English assignment for myself. I came to this website searching for insight. I read the book 3 times already. Every different personality characteristic in this one Holden, to me, is unimaginable. The book had a reputation of controversy, so I was forewarned. I don't fully understand the total message, but I cannot get it out of my mind. Few readings have ever captivated my curiosity to a point of obsession to research an acceptable answer. I think that even if this book angers you, anyone can find a connecting point. I am thankful and proud that sensorship did not deprive me of the subconcious awareness found within the pages of Catcher in the Rye. I am so enlightened, will ask my teenagers to read the book. Just please accept my thanks for your website. It was my first choice and I will be back as my English course progresses and I try to satisify my fascination with translating the contents.

I am a poet, although I do not like the word, and I believe that this book is the best. I consider it my second Bible. Salinger is a true genius. I love his work. I have read it 16 times and still going strong.

This book is so relevant to my life it is scary. It explains such a lot and Holden is one of the most interesting characters in literature. A fine book and a fine website. On a purely pedantic note, is it just me that cannot picture Holden with a crewcut? He shoud surely have a mop of hair in a sixties style.....or it could just be me!

I loved your site! Literature is a hobby of mine and I love to see websites devoted to great works. Yours is definitely one of the best I've seen. I was puzzled by the inaccurate summary at the beginning and scrolled immediately to the end thinking, "this must be some idiot kid's homework." I was delighted beyond belief when I read that the summary was deliberately screwy. short, EXCELLENT SITE!
