Oliver the Cat Reviews The Catcher in the Rye


He doesn’t seem to like it. I suspect he isn’t alone in his opinion. Am I right?

And speaking of The Catcher in the Rye, my daughters had to read it for school during the summer. Sydney, who is sixteen, was inspired to draw this. I think it’s amazing!

Stay tuned for more from Oliver and Sydney. Can’t wait to see their take on The Great Gatsby!

  1. Ok. Oliver is somewhat right but I remember mostly liking the book. But that was 50 years ago and it seemed cool then. Your daughter’s picture is AMAZING. Excellent on a number of levels. She is very talented. Hope her teacher accepted that in lieu of a book report.

    • Thank you! I recall reading it in high school and I think I didn’t like the main character. Unfortunately, I think Sydney will still be required to do an essay. 🙂 Are you back from your trip?


  2. Now I know why I don’t like cats! The Catcher in the Rye is one of my favorites along with The Old Man and the Sea. But, I will admit that it’s been 25 years since I read it (for the second time)! Love your daughter’s drawing though. Come on Fido, let’s go back on the porch and read another great classic. How about Go Dog Go! ? Much better than Cat in the Hat.

    • I remember reading The Catcher in the Rye in high school. Was that in one of your classes? (I’m not going to tell Oliver that you insulted him. He’s a little sensitive.)
