Any story of orientation or initiation I compare with Salinger’s novel „The Catcher in the Rye“.
„I want to save the world“ – Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
Holden Caulfield, the young hero, stumbles from one disastrous situation into the next, playing the would-be grown-up as cool as he can. I cannot but follow him on his odyssey with loads of sympathy, amusement and laughter.
I found myself completely drawn into the rich, nuanced story of Holden Caulfield. I found myself empathizing with Caulfield from the very beginning.
I love these “I want to save the world” dreams that are a wonderful part of childhood and it is a shame that such ideas and beliefs are too often destroyed under the barrage of “you really need to grow up”.
