Even though there were some critics who thought The Catcher in the Rye should be banned, it still became the greatest novel of post World War II. J. D. Salinger’s genius use of language throughout the novel made Holden Caulfield human. Because of the accurate portrayal of a teenage boy, the reader is able to become familiar with Holden’s idiosyncrasies, therefore making him seem more realistic. By making Holden come to life, Salinger was able to create one of the most memorable characters in all of literature.
