Catching a Rye-ful

Son is writing a short essay about The Catcher in the Rye.  I recall having to read that book in high school.  Please remember that in high school that I read about one novel every four days, on average.  I know Holden Caulfield is an unreliable and unsympathetic narrator, but I remember having a visceral hatred of him that made me really reluctant to read the book.

After skimming the book last night, I am not sure that my thoughts have changed much.  This is kind of ironic, since that's sort of the point of the book.  Curse you, meta-humor!
