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 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...

" 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"

"What is is about? The book is set around the 1950s and is narrated by a young man named Holden Caulfield. 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"
