message: Even though i was the only person in my english class to actually like reading and do it voluntarily, the book that i disliked most was Catcher in the Rye. Everyoen else in my class really enjoyed it, but I think that it is a very stereotypical book about a person that no one liked and had no real purpose in their life. Why is everyone so obsessed with Holden? If people were to actually know him in real life he would be a loser, just like a bunch of other losers who do nothing meaningful with their life and still complain the whole way through. Why do people think that Holden had to go through such a hard life? He had everything that he needed for a happy life, yet he still found no enjoyment in what he had.
