Made me cry. Encompasses the frustrations faced in the transition from childhood to adulthood. It’s unlikable if you don’t focus on putting yourself in Holden’s shoes, because by looking at him from the outside, he is a pretty shitty person. That’s the beauty of the book; most teenagers are the exact same.

This was such a weird book for me
I read it for school, so looking at it through that lens definitely helped me appreciate/understand this book more than if I had just read it for myself/for fun
Holden is unlikeable, that's for sure, and he's the main character so you are kinda stuck with him. It's very stream-of-conscious like, which means hearing alllll of his thoughts for a weekend
I enjoyed the aspect of Holden struggling with growing up, and his views on adulthood. Pretty conflicted as to how I view him. It was also interesting to see how mental health was treated in the past (spoiler: not great).
All and all, school made me like this from a thinking perspective, while my enjoyment level is pretty low
Hence, 2.5 stars = between it was ok/i liked it
