Not some plain main character in The Catcher in the Rye
Recently I read pages 1-4 in The Catcher in the Rye by J.D.Salinger, and I kind of liked it so far Because it not a normal story. The author really has his own creative touch to writing his stories.
One line from this part of the book that stands out for me is: "The first thing you'll want to know is,and what me lousy childhood was like,and how my parent were occupied and all before they had me,and all that David Copperfield kind of crap,but i don't feel like going into it,if you want to know the truth" I think this is funny because most stories don't start out like that,which already had me thinking that this story wasn't going to be all typical.
Another line that I liked was: "I'm not gonna tell you about my whole goddamn autobiography or anything. I' ll just tell you about this madman that happened to me..." This stood out because I now know the character has a personality,and he isn't just some plain main character in a story.
The main character in The Catcher in the Rye reminds me of myself because he not average,and neither am I. And I like to talk very casually while explaining a story (just like him).
What's probably going to happen is,he's going to fall in love with some girl but have problems in his life,like in a lot of stories.
I am looking forward to reading the rest of the book because i want to see what else happens.
