C'è da andare in "brodo di giuggiole" a leggere questo libro. Se si pensa con la testa di un ventenne d'oggi, magari non sembra così trasgressivo (anche se non ci scommetterei). Ma i libri sono fatti per questo, per mettersi nella testa e nei panni di un epoca e di un personaggio. Ci sono mille modi per raccontare l'irrequietezza giovanile, ma quello di Salinger mi è sembrato il migliore.

Far, far more than a book.

Why is this book considered iconic? Because it's the most life-changing experience a work can ever get. Why is that so?

Because it helps people having been sexually abused to get over it.

You definitely must read this book if you have any experience related to sexual abuse and are well aware of its consequences (whether you came through this problem yourself or not). ... read more

The Catcher In the Rye by Salinger

The masterpiece? The magnum opus? Whatever the hell you want to call this - it's got enough truth to drive some people insane. If you haven't read this, you're not a functioning member of society. But don't stop here, either - this is hardly the man's finest hour. Deeper, more beautiful words lie further into the Salinger collection...

"“I like it when somebody gets excited about something. It's nice.” “when you're not looking, somebody'll sneak up and write "Fuck you" right under your nose.” “People always clap for the wrong reasons.” “It's partly true, too, but it isn't all true. People always think something's all true.” “This is a people shooting hat," I said. "I shoot people in this hat.” “I know he's dead! Don't you think I know that? I can still like him, though, can't I? Just because somebody's"

"The vague memories I have of this book tell me to recommend it to you in the following way: Have you ever had a supermarket checkout person ask you, "How are you?" and have you ever wanted to do anything else but respond, "Good," as expected? This book will help you, with an Into The Wild philosophy, kind of. "

"Holden Caulfield. What can I say about the boy? He's certainly cynical. Quirky. Hypocritical. Protective. He's multifaceted, and from what I've heard of others who have read this book, you either love him passionately (because you see yourself in him) or you hate him with a burning vengeance that makes you wish you could enter books just to murder him. I leaned more to the love-him side of things, though I thought the plot was quite boring. "

Conspiracy Theories About Classic Characters (8 books items)

" Holden Caulfield is gay,too. We’ve heard this theory come up multiple times over the years, supported by fans who cite Holden’s attention to the physicality of his male friends, his confusion or even revulsion at the thought of having sex with a woman, the ambiguity of his interaction with Mr. Antolini. Then again, he could be equally confused about sex as a straight sixteen year old."

"''If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.''"

"Hyvä nuoruuden angstin ja harhailun kuvaus, jonka päähenkilö on välillä erittäin samaistuttava ja hauska, mutta välillä taas hyvin ärsyttävä ja kyyninen idiootti. 50-luvun tunnelma jazzkapakoineen oli ehdotonta plussaa."

"I'm not entirely sure why I like this book. Maybe I relate to the protagonist, being something of a misfit and a weirdo. I do like towards the end how a child has a redeeming and ... i'm not sure how to describe it... a civilizing? effect on an older person, it makes him act more like a grown up, gives him a desire to be a role model."
