I like the book for presenting a character who I can relate to. As some one who spent a large part of my teenage years apart from my peers I can understand where Holden is coming form. At the same time the cynical way that he looks at life makes me think more of how I am now. Perhaps he is a bit whiny, but I would like to think that he would mature into a well reasoned adult. Either way I enjoyed reading this novel, and have gone through it several times.
