Book Review: The Catcher in the Rye and Philosophy

The Catcher in the Rye and Philosophy by Keith Dromm
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Have you ever wondered where the ducks go in winter? Well wonder no more my friends!
With this entry in Open Court's "Popular Culture and Philosophy" series we tackle head on an American icon, and, although far from perfect, it provides numerous philosophical insights into a number of aspects of Holden Caulfield's tortured existence.
Overall, its a worthwhile read for anyone who really wants to dig deeper into what "Catcher in the Rye" is really all about, or someone who perhaps simply has a term paper due date rapidly approaching.
I may very well be called a bastard after writing this review, but at least I'm not a phony or a moron. Although...maybe perhaps a little mad but after living in such a “phony” world for all this time, who could blame be?

“Cody's reviews come sharp and to the point, displaying a vast wealth of knowledge all things book-related, from fiction to non and everything in between. With a side dish of social satire, outright sarcasm or even both, he serves as an exemplary model for the modern day book critic.”
