The Catcher in the Rye

I wasn’t so sure about the first half, but as I read toward the ending, I start feeling like this could be one of the best ones. Turned out, it really was.

I read Japanese translation while ago, when I was in high school. I was closer to the character, Holden, in terms of age, but I realized how I did NOT get anything back then. I remember thinking about this as interesting but weird book. I guess I was just being John Lennon fan and wanting to see what was the big deal about this.

Or, maybe, I was just reading more from Holden’s viewpoint back then, as confused young kid. Now I read as adult, from viewpoint of Mr. Antolini or something.

Interesting how the story remained the same, but the way you read it changed.
