Lovely and life-affirming,
This review is from: Catcher, Caught (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Catcher in the Rye is one of my favourite books. That is why I chose to read this one. Young Daniel Landon identifies with the character of Holden Caulfield and draws strength and understanding from this relationship. This enables him to work through things following his diagnosis of leukemia. Despite this, life does go on for Daniel and he struggles to come to terms with his illness and fear alongside family life and the emergence of his love for Meredith.
This is a lovely book and highlights the importance of family, communication and love. I do think that having read J.D. Salinger's book has enhanced my understanding and enjoyment of this one. So I would suggest you read both to make the experience more enjoyable.
