11. Catcher in the Rye By J. D. Salinger 

The hero and narrator of the "Catcher in the Rye" is a sixteen-year-old New York-based teenager named Holden Caulfield. He, according to circumstances, leaves his undergraduate school in Pennsylvania and hides in New York for three days. This boy is both very simple and very complicated at the same time so that we can not easily comment on him and his story. Perhaps the most trustful thing to say about Holden is that he was born into a world that was not only profoundly fascinated by beauty but hanged to it, desperately.

There are many voices in the novel: the children's voice, adult voice, underground sounds, but their most talented voice is Holden. By passing through his oral language, he continues to have a clear cry of suffering from astonishing loyalty to it. However, like the most lovers, clowns, and high-level poets, they keep most of their suffering and pain for themselves. Enjoying or avoiding it. So this is the reader who can somehow experience this joy.
