The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger

When I think of classic novels, one of the first books that pop into my mind is Catcher in the Rye written by J. D. Salinger. The main character Holden Caulfield is the epitome of teenage angst. When he gets kicked out of his prestigious boarding school, Holden decides to gallivant around New York for awhile instead of going home. What I find most interesting about this book is that Salinger wrote it in such a way that all of the crazy-stupid things Holden gets himself into seems like nothing out of the norm. This book is truly one of a kind and I would reccomend it to anybody.
