The days in high school…

The days in high school are some of the days that will affect one’s life forever. This period is the period in which a person looks inside oneself and see who they will be, what they will do. They will find what they have, and choose how they will use what they are granted. But sometimes, people do not like what they see inside them.

 Holden Caulfield, the main character in The Catcher in the Rye, is just one boy amongst them. He entered school gifted, but was soon expelled for declining grades. He leaves the dormitory he stayed in but does not have the motivation to go home just yet. He decides to take a trip wherever his heart desires, and meets some acquaintances during his small vacation. Throughout the story, Holden’s peculiar ideas towards life and human are revealed, strangely convincing that the world really is like what Holden is seeing. The link we can find between ourselves and Holden is the genuine result of how carefully J. D. Salinger, the author of the book, has observed his own life and the world around him.

 This fantastic story written in the 1950s makes us think of what life is, and how the world takes its shape.
