Title: The Catcher In The Rye
Author: J D Salinger
This book helped me to escape because….
This novel held a character, Holden that I identified with on many levels, specifically with his feeling of a lost sense of identity. Due to this I as able to establish a thorough connection to him as a friend, instead of just a fictional tool. The “Catcher in the Rye” was a reflection of myself and the world I live in and though it isn’t a story of fantasy, magic and dragons, it was a story of a lost boy trying to survive his life and live how he wants without the overbearing restrictions of society, something we “millennials” are far too familiar with.
