The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

      Novel by J.D. Salinger, published in 1951. The influential and widely acclaimed story details the two days in the life of 16-year-old Holden Caulfield after he has been expelled from prep school. Confused and disillusioned, he searches for truth and rails against the "phoniness" of the adult world. He ends up exhausted and emotionally ill, in a psychiatrist's office. After he recovers from his breakdown, Holden relates his experiences to the reader.

    I never read anything in school because I just wasn't interested. Now, I'm trying to catch up on what I should have read back then.

    This will be my first meet-up. Should I re-read the book? Are copies made available at the meeting or should I get one ahead of time? What are the "kits" made available by the library for meet-ups? (I could be mistaken about this.)

    Thank you and I'm looking forward to this. "Catcher" is, if not the best American novel, the most original.

      Well for this novel there is no kit....so you'll have to have you own copy which won't be too difficult because it's pretty popular and it's not a new book so you could probably check out a library copy with ease but it sounds like you probably have your own copy based on your love of this book. I would reread the book or as much as you can and come either with questions or answers to questions because we have a general discussion about any or every aspect of the book. I think you are going to be a very interesting person to chat with and I am looking forward to meeting you.
