You cannot mess with this book. The book follows the coming of age story of Holden Caulfield, who doesn't really know who he is, or what he's meant to do, so he goes on all sorts of weird adventures, despising most adults and society in general.
The highlight of this book, for me, was the character of Holden Caulfield. Angsty, arrogant, snobbish, snarky, witty, disturbed, and almost completely lovable. You love to hate him, he is the awkward protagonist who you fear for and cheer for. True classic.
