This report will cover chapters 9-16 of Catcher in the Rye by J. D Salinger. Holden has traveled to New York City and is unsure what to do now that he has left the preparatory school, that he was previously attending. Throughout these chapters Holden travels around New York, during this time he runs into some unique people, some that he knows and some strangers. Has some interesting experiences, some that end up not going well for him. I hope that he learns from his experiences that he has had. One of the quotes that I enjoyed from this section happened just as Holden caught a taxi in New York to get to his hotel; “the cab I had was a real old one that smelled like someone’d just tossed his cookies in it.” I am enjoying the book so far I like
