Anyway, I'm sort of glad they've got the atomic bomb invented.

If there's ever another war, I'm going to sit right the hell on top of it.

I'll volunteer for it, I swear to God I will. ~Chapter 18

Existence as it is. Well, based on Holden Caulfield's twisted neuro-functioning that is. Being the main character, the speaker and the only voice for an in-depth critique perspective in the book, Holden is the lone door to his realm. Recognized that it is a book in the first person point of view, I am forced to listen to him and move with him alone. Effective? Most definitely yes. Because it comes out all too natural and too authentic that it is very hard to escape his attention traps. His life is too dark, too negative, and maybe even traumatic that the given POV works very well as he recounts what is probably one of the darkest days of his life. Imagine somebody else doing all of these recordings of his time not very well spent? It'll just be another book of the same sort that involves people watching other people and then crazily gets it published. Luckily however, Catcher in the rye is a story of a hard-hitting veiled reality that is written in a way that is not too overrated neither is too much of a bogus; being it fiction.
