The Catcher in the Rye is helping me learn how it would feel to be in someone else's perspective
Recently I read pages 85-105 in The Catcher in the Rye by J.D.Salinger and I really think that the book is getting better and more captivating because I am really learning about how it would feel to be on someone else's perspective and how life is for them. I think that Holsen can be really unfortunate at times, but also brilliant in some ways.
One line from this part of the book that stands out for me is: "I WALKED all the way back to the hotel. Forty-one gorgeous blocks" I think this is very fun because I love walking and I really don't know what is my limit to walking which makes it more interesting. I think that I can atleast walk more han 50 blocks.
Another line that I found appealing was: " In the first place, I'm sor of an atheist." This stood out for me because I think I myself might be an atheist, too. Like I'm not really religious about anything, but I have a feeling that God is somewhere out there. I think that religion is not really important even though people keep telling me that I will go to hell and stuff for not believing in God...which just makes me think "Wow I barely know the guy and I'm going to hell...interesting."
This section of The Catcher in the Rye was very unusual as I kept reading. I actually thought that he would do it with Sunny and then would have regretted it or something, but it turns out that there was more action than just that. I thought that the Maurice dude would actually just leave him alone instead of scamming him for his money.
What's probably going to happen next is that he might just call a friend and actually go hang out with them and stop getting into trouble.
I am looking forward to reading the rest of this book because it's getting better and I want to find out what happens to him during the rest of the book and what happens later on. ^.^
