Line(s) of the Day #TheCatcherIntheRye

Catcher in the Rye

Some game. If you get on the side where all the hot-shots are, then it’s a game, all right – I’ll admit that. But if you get on the other side, where there aren’t any hot-shots, then what’s a game about it? Nothing. No game.”

The rebellious, lost soul that is Hayden Caulfield in the seminal book Catcher in the Rye (1951) by JD Salinger,which has sold over 65 million copies to date.

  1. Holden Caulfield is the man!

    “That’s all I’d do all day. I’d just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it’s crazy, but that’s the only thing I’d really like to be.”

  2. Holden Caulfield is one of my favourite ever protagonists. I know that’s not original, but it’s true! Mainly I just liked him because he struck me as a kind hearted kid, who couldn’t understand the unkindness of the world.

    Excellent post!
