Ok so basically im supposed to write an essay describing the tone and style of the author on the books , "Catcher in the Rye" and "Nickel and Dimed". If you want to know my opinion, they're were both great books. Ok, well Nickel and Dimed (By Barbara Ehrenich) was okay. It's for AP Lang and Compositions...eh.
Basically I'm asking for help on describing the style and tone. I know that in catcher in the rye (if some of you guys read it), the author or main character, Holden, can be arrogant, stubborn, know-it-all, etc. But what I don't get is style. Do they mean first person? and yes, im only supposed to write about the tone and style of the author. not sure if i can also make a short summary.
