dark emotional funny reflective sad tense slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? It's complicated
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


this is my favorite book. while there is almost no plot the book still manages to entertain you (in my opinion.) the book does have a bit of sexism and homophobia (although some have questioned if holden is gay himself.) which should be kinda expected due to the time period and the ideas people had at that time. i recommend for you to read this as a teen, if you can.
