The main character of The Catcher and the Rye, Holden, is a perfect example of the typical teenager. Maybe it’s the problems that he faces with that makes him relatable to various teens, or maybe is the way he acts like he doesn’t care at all about those problems, or perhaps it is simply his attitude what makes him have something in common with you. Anyhow, Holden is very relatable. Of course we all have different problems, but I think most of teenagers have had trouble with school or hypocracy, or other conflicts that will appear as I continue reading. I guess the author just attempted to make a realistic character with true and common characteristics for the readers to understand the importance of the story.
