The Catcher in the Rye

(a photo reminding how many times Holden thought people were a phony. In my opinion, Holden isn't a phony, he's just needed his own unique experience, to be individual as himself. Anybody dreams of freedom from others' egos, doesn't it. But you can find on google like there's 100 one-star reviews of The Catcher in the Rye, they really don't like this book lol.)

This time I joined in a section of the club, "1984 team", The Catcher in the Rye, published in 1951. It's a book, famous and classic one in United States like Tale of two cities in UK, that I wondered why it's famous. Unfortunately, I couldn't finish it on time with other members. I would love to say that I really appreciate all members made efforts to read together and share the contents and their feelings and some of opinions together every time. It was another amazing experience I have got in this book club. Personal story; as a person who had a reading difficulty and anxiety problem for a long while which I didn't even know recognize that's a difficulty or anxiety to 'live fully', I really needed to put myself out. After all my search for moving forward, I met this book club 'Naran' a couple years ago maintaining to join various sections. I love this club because I can be motivated by the well-managed schedules and the existence of other members. It's such an inspiring and democratic place! Thank you all, and leaders' openness and their efforts to hold the place for anyone that I felt always it's a safe and curious place and I learned how to communicate clearly within a content through the internet in the present time.
