Book Review: The Catcher in the Rye

I went into this book with lousy expectations after reading polarising Goodreads reviews. Despite numerous reviews complaining about the boring narrative and laborious pace of this book; I personally found it well paced and hard to put down. That said I can acknowledge on reflection that there didn’t really seem to be much of a plot. I believe this is intentional as the book was crafted to seem like the retelling of a handful of days in Holden's life, rather than an adventure novel.
