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.

Terminé de leer el Catcher in The Rye, uno de los títulos más amados de Estados Unidos por básicamente ocasionar el asesinato de John Lennon. Ustedes sólo lo conocerán por ese episodio de South Park que se burla del libro por ser aburrido con problemas de primer mundo. Esas son precisamente las impresiones que obtuve: unas setenta mil palabras sobre el día a día de un perdedor con problema... read more

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

“O Apanhador no campo de centeio ou The Catcher in the rye é um romance dos anos cinquenta que narra a vida conturbada de um fracassado chamado Holden Caulfield, um desses jovens cínicos e irônicos cheios de problemas emocionais(fãs do Tio Orochi e do Maicon Küster). Muito ao estilo de Memórias do Subsolo esse livro é narrado por Holden, no qual conta seu dia a dia em forma de diário, narrando os aspectos mundanos da sua vida. O livro está em volto de uma polêmica do qual não fui atrás de saber mas que tem haver com assassinatos de celebridade por alguma razão, mas dane-se isso, o que há com esse livro? Bién, se já leram Memórias do Subsolo ou Memórias Póstumas de Brás Cubas podem estar familiarizados com esse tipo de texto, é um relato mais psicológico sobre os proble” read more

“journal entry

FUCK, life is so full of crap.

there is one good thing in my life though. just read this book Catcher in the Rye. blown away! i don't know how a book written decades ago could say exactly what i would say. it is like the author was reading my thoughts and put it all down in this book. things i didn't even realize i felt ” read more

Esas son precisamente las impresiones que obtuve: unas setenta mil palabras sobre el día a día de un perdedor con problemas de primer mundo.

Hablar de la trama sería una pérdida de tiempo porque no existe; es un insight por completo de la mente de Holden Caulfield y como de irreverente es su vida. Si no lo lees con el contexto adecuado pensarás que es una mierda dado a que el appeal se basa en ir en contra de toda clase de mentalidad boyscout que tanto detestamos el autor y yo. También es sobre demostr” read more

" Read it for the first time when I was 18 and loved it, the first perfect story I ever read. Absolutely flawless. Then I read it 8 years later going in this time with a bit of apprehension that my favorite book would be demolished because my taste had shifted and I had grown more coarse over the years. Nope! The goddamn book was still magnificent. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it’s mine, give me all the tea and I’m so glad to have a book I absolutely love...until 8 years lat"

" Game, my ass. Some game. If you get on the side where all the hot-shots are, then it's a game, all right - I'll admit that. But if you get on the other side, where there aren't any hotshots, then what's a game about it? That's the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty, even if they're not much to look at, or even if they're sort of stupid, you fall in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are. Girls. Jesus Christ. They can drive you crazy. They really can"

Holden has failed four out of five of his classes and has received notice that he is being expelled, but he is not scheduled to return home to Manhattan until Wednesday. Eventually, after having a fight with his roommate, he goes to Manhattan three days early, stay in a hotel without telling his parents that he is back. Personal note: I kept hearing about his books and I was certainly not d"
