I’m not one for classics but I decided to read this anyways. Holden is a very complex character and I do enjoy seeing his journey and development on how he copes with loneliness and growing up. I did find it boring to read sometimes cause he was so whiny yet extremely privileged which was kind of the point. I started liking more towards the end but it wasn’t terrible. Like most classics there’s misogyny, homophobia and racism which is kind of expected given the time period. But other than that it was a good book but nothing particularly special.

Just a weird teenage boy hating everything, being sexist, racist and homophobic at the same time. Definitely of its time.
