Chapman was arrested with a copy of Salinger’s novel. He read passages from The Catcher in the Rye during the court. The novel was the favourite book of John Hinckley, who made an assassination attempt on the US president Ronald Reagan in 1981. As for me, Jerome David Salinger is one of the most interesting and mysterious authors He made a great impression on me He created very enigmatic stories They are very simple to read and very difficult to understand He created his own dramatic style That’s why it’s very easy to recognize yourself in characters of his novels Salinger gave us an opportunity to read into the plot every time you read his stories For me, The Catcher in the Rye is one of the favorite novels I’m sure that everybody who read the book, found something from Holden Caulfield inside Salinger had a great luck and created a contradictory character It makes us think about our place in the world Gopnik A.
