I gotta say Holden Caulfield is one of the most unlikable and obnoxious characters to ever exist. It made the book almost unreadable.

Holden is a badass.

Holden is a marginal person. He is not like the masses which he denotes as phony. And he abhors phonyness. That's why he looks unlikable. And I liked the character for his anti-phony attitude.

There's a lot of ''masterpiece'' novels out there that I don't understand why they're popular...like the Scarlet Letter...

What is this "Catcher in the Rye" you speak of?

It's extremely boring, I really found it a struggle to finish it.

Holden doesn't like you either.

Never read the book

I read in french class 2 years ago. Didn't know it was Catcher in the Rye I looked at the inside cover half way through the book.

And by the time I got to the end of the novel I didn't like it, I found Holden to be a very irritating character because he's never pleased with anything (see him at the play) and his plan of being a morale guardian makes him look like a phony. He's not doing it for those kids, he's doing it for himself because nobody was there to protect him from growing up.
