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).

Ci sono mille modi per raccontare l'irrequietezza giovanile, ma quello di Salinger mi è sembrato il migliore.

Far, far more than a book.

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...

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.
