It’s not super well written and really didn’t live up to my expectations, but it was a nice read with some interesting details and symbolism. I think it was quite important for its time, even if it isn’t beautifully written.

This book was very, very slow. I liked some aspects of the book, but not many. If you're looking for a classic book to read that's good, i would not recommend it.

 I suppose for the time written, the contents in this book were groundbreaking and never seen before, and I can certainly appreciate the cultural significance that this book has had on Western literature and pop culture. However, in the era where much of the protagonist's antics are more-or-less seen as completely normal or expected teenage behavior, it falls flat in living up to its legacy and does little to give the reader anything entirely unique or of substance to chew on. There's little for me to dig my fangs into as far as analyzation since everything is just laid out for the reader (though this did help in English class; easiest A I've ever gotten on an assignment), and as far as an actual story, though it is dull and uneventful throughout the entire thing, it was still an enjoyable read thanks to Holden's pessimistic quips and the wonderful writing, hence my three star rating.
