    • Product Description

      Thrown out by his fourth school, Holden Caulfield, the protagonist of The Catcher in the Rye is a lazy, reclusive boy. The profanities used in the book best express his frustrated state of mind and from the way his parents live to his fake teachers to his roommate who scores with girls using sickly-sweet affection, no one is spared from it. After being fed up of the 'phoniness'of adulthood, Holden as a revolt heads to New York City. The book describes his encounters with flirtatious middle-aged women, prostitutes, nuns, wayward taxi drivers, alcohol and drugs. Holden's journey of self-discovery turns to a life full of debauchery but his sister Phoebe helps him recover from it. He narrates all these events to the readers as a flashback. The teenage dilemma about the way life works, feelings of alienation and the struggle against the artificial world, everything is described meticulously in The Catcher in the Rye. The blunt, offensive language add more to the strong emotions of the protagonist. The book was published by Penguin as the Open Market edition on 4 March 2010 and is available in paperback. Key Features:It was listed amongst the 100 Best English Novels written since 1923 by Time magazine. The Catcher in the Rye spent about 30 weeks in the New York Times bestselling list.
