This book is brilliant the diction that salinger uses completely matches the personality of holden. Who by far is the funniest character in literature. I really enjoyed his inner battle between the adult world and trying to grasp the reality of keeping or protecting his innocence and the innocence of others. Really well written and a book I would recommend to anyone.

This book is completely and utterly brilliant. Read it. Those who would argue otherwise did not understand its content. Regardless of how you may feel about Holden Caulfield the book itself is a masterpiece.
