The Catcher in the Rye (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 239

The Catcher In The Rye by J. D. Salinger is a coming-of-age novel that explores the themes of rebellion, independence, and identity, through the adventures of a teenage boy.

Summary Of The Book

Holden Caulfield is the protagonist of The Catcher In The Rye. He is portrayed by Salinger as a boy who is lazy and uncertain about his future. The story begins at Pencey Preparatory school, at which Holden is a student. In this first-person narrative, Holden describes life at this preparatory school as phoney, artificial, and dreary. After receiving yet another set of inadequate grades, he is expelled from the school. In an effort to 'find himself', Holden decides to head to New York City, where he heads underground. He narrates his adventures there in a 3-day flashback, which forms the basis of Salinger’s story.

In New York City, Holden encounters a variety of experiences and adventures which bring him along on his path to self discovery. For instance, he encounters three women in their thirties, who dance and flirt with him. After observing what he assumes is a sex scene through a hotel window, Holden decides to invite a prostitute to his room. Adding to his 'adventures' are experiences with nuns, wayward taxi drivers, alcohol, and drugs. As Holden sinks deeper and deeper into this debaucherous lifestyle, a chance meeting with his sister Phoebe supplies Holden with just enough affection to yank him out of his 'madness'.

The frequent use of profanity and colloquialism by Salinger adds an element of realism to the characters, and is indicative of 'teenage behaviour'. The book promises to be an inspirational read for teenagers and adults alike who are facing or have faced similar mountains.
The Catcher In The Rye was originally published in 1951. It has been chosen as the best novel of the 20th century by The New York Times. Even though it was initially met with much hesitation by many concerned parents, it still managed to sell over two and a half million copies worldwide. Time magazine listed the book as one of the "100 Best English Novels Written".

About J. D. Salinger

Jerome David Salinger was a celebrated American writer, who hailed from New York City. He authored other books such as Nine Stories, Franny And Zooey, and Go See Eddie. Salinger completed his education at Valley Forge Military Academy. He also completed a writing course at Columbia University. During the Second World War, Salinger worked for the counterintelligence division, where his role was to interrogate POWs. After the war, Salinger continued to publish his stories in various magazines and newspapers. The Catcher In The Rye was Salinger’s first published novel. In his personal life, Salinger was somewhat of a recluse. He had married three times and fathered two children. He was also an avid practitioner of Zen Buddhism and he later began practising Vedantic Yoga. Salinger passed away in 2010, of natural causes.

Not worth it for all the time in the world

I personally found this book to be extremely boring. It's basically a monologue of a stupid teenager who is whimsical and doesn't know why he is doing what he is doing. There is absolutely no subject matter in this book, it's like reading drunken ramblings in the diary of a confused teenager. I woul… (View complete review)

The book has a very good plot but the writing is absolute nonsense and absolute rubbish. There is practically no story. It will bore you as you progress.The book has nothing in it.

To all the negative reviews : Look before you leap

Before you buy this book, you need to ask yourself this (No, I'm not being dramatic) : Whats the best book I've read so far?

If your answer is some Sidney Sheldon book (no offence) or some other racy or otherwise thriller involving multinational companies and jets and automatic rifles and secret agencies, wait for a moment. Do you have the patience to appreciate a slow book, one that drags on to an inconclusive ending and even then will leave you hanging?

No? Then don't buy this, you'll be disappointed.

However if you are the type that relishes the stories of human life as they are, the st

5 Reasons Why You Should Read Salinger

1) This is one of the best novels you'll ever read.
2) It's not a tome, so you WILL have time to update your Facebook status from time to time. Tell the world that you're reading something substantial...at last.
3)You might just feel like writing after reading this one. That doesn't mean you'll be good at it, but its a start.
4) You can act like an intellectual snob and judge everybody...(silently, of course). No one wants to hear about Salinger from a 25 year old.
5) You'll still be a phony, just more aware that you are one.

Happy reading.

A fertile plot to build your intellectual infrastructure on..!!

It builds slowly inside you.. And it takes a while before it hits you, and when it does it, it does terrific. The book leaves a profound effect on your psyche if you read it during your adolescent life (unless you are insensitive). If you are past this stage, then too you can enjoy it if you only let the effervescence in you be alive, if you revisit those younger days, you know 16, 17..and all that happens..
Having said this, there are also chances that you will hate this book, if you are not its type. I will suggest you to go through certain pages of the book (by reading ebook version) and i

Rich and Easy.It Killed Me.

Its a lovely book! I just finished reading it and I must say I had a wonderful read, I am huge fan of modern classics and "The Catcher In The Rye" has been added to my favorites with The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath and The Fall by Albert Camus.
The writing is very simple and extremely easy to read, there's hardly any difficult words and yet the novel manages to leave behind a rich experience.
This book was originally written for adults but I think teenagers would like it much more, I'm 15 and I simply loved it.
The book starts with the boy watching a game at his school Pencey ( a boarding school

The catcher in the rye? What do you think it is.......

I just happened to pick up this book because I had nothing to do, "The catcher in the rye" I had no idea what it meant or what to expect from the it.And I got to tell you that once I started reading it I realized had never read anything like this, the way its been written is "weird" in a good way and refreshing.The pivotal character Hollden Caulfield, seventeen year old talks about his life, friends ,family, how unassuming he is, how he feels that most of the things and people around him are phony. And you get to know what catcher in the rye actually means.Everyone is a teen at some point of t

J D Salinger's killer book

When this appeared for the first time, the American Government banned it. They feared that this book which showcased the agony of a teenager had the power to derail the fragile young minds of a nation into destructive paths. When I say the 'agony', it's the true agony faced by a troubled teenager, not the namby-pamby and ridiculous and meaningless troubles with his opposite sex.

Holden Caulfield is deeply troubled. He's alone, ambition-less, expelled from school. The story describes the events which ultimately lead to his breakdown. J D Salinger uses street language which enhances the realism

A novel far ahead of its time.

While going through the first few pages of this wonderfully well packaged book, I coudnt' help but wonder if I was really reading a novel set up almost 60 years ago. The language is so contemporary, you almost feel its a blog! But then, what you have in your hands is anything but the ramblings of a disgruntled young man on the web.It is intricate and meaningful. Black humour at its very best. An amazing piece of literature.

Great book, shabby service

The book is an absolute wonder, the only thing that mars the beauty is the shabby service by flipkart. When I ordered the book, the delivery time was supposed to be 2-3 days, instead it came a week later, which isn't really appreciated by me. What happened flippy? I've ordered earlier from this site and the service was just great....hope that wont happen in the future....awesome book, i'd like to say, again.

Good read but not great.

Many said that this book is one of the best literary works. But i beg to differ. The plot is uninteresting and slow. The author strangles you with Holden caulfield. This book is supposed to be based on teenage rebellion. But what i see here is utter stupidness. According to Holden, everything in the world is phony.
And infact, not everybody but this book is phony.
This book is highly over rated and praised. There are better books than this piece of junk. Do not waste your precious time!

Park Walk

Do you love what you love, or just the feeling?

Holden Caulfield is a 16 year old who has been expelled from Pencey a few days prior to Christmas. He decides to take a walk down the lane and is stifled by the ravaging questions that adolescence throws at him.

'The Catcher in the Rye' is a slow read, a stroll in the park. And for those who are looking for a kiss at the end. There is none.
