Beschreibung

The Catcher in Rye is the ultimate novel for disaffected youth, but it's relevant to all ages. The story is told by Holden Caulfield, a seventeen- year-old dropout who has just been kicked out of his fourth school. Throughout, Holden dissects the 'phony' aspects of society, and the 'phonies' themselves: the headmaster whose affability depends on the wealth of the parents, his roommate who scores with girls using sickly-sweet affection.

Lazy in style, full of slang and swear words, it's a novel whose interest and appeal comes from its observations rather than its plot intrigues (in conventional terms, there is hardly any plot at all). Salinger's style creates an effect of conversation, it is as though Holden is speaking to you personally, as though you too have seen through the pretences of the American Dream and are growing up unable to see the point of living in, or contributing to, the society around you.

Written with the clarity of a boy leaving childhood, it deals with society, love, loss, and expectations without ever falling into the clutch of a cliche.

J. D. Salinger was born in 1919 and died in January 2010. He grew up in New York City and wrote short stories from an early age, but his breakthrough came in 1948 with the publication in the New Yorker of 'A Perfect Day for Bananafish'. The Catcher in the Rye was his first and only novel, published in 1951. It remains one of the most translated, taught and reprinted texts, and has sold over 65 million copies worldwide. He went on to write three further, critically acclaimed, best-selling works of fiction:
Franny an
d Zooey, For Esmé - With Love And Squalor and
Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters, and Seymour - An Introduction. Salinger continued to write throughout his life and left behind a large body of unpublished work.

It was a great book for me when I was a teenager and I do hope it is still for many. A young iconic character Holden’s world view... Complex issues of identity, loss of innocence, maybe a depression. (Despite all these dramatic issues I have found only hope)... One of the best English language novels.

While also highly recommendable for adults, too, every young person should especially read this. It is a special book and it felt great to read it.

Absolut großartig

Der Catcher ist sicherlich kein Geheimtipp sondern zählt zur ganz großen Weltliteratur. Und dies absolut zurecht. Drei Tage mit dem sympathischen "Antihelden" Holden Caulfield in New York City zwischen Gesellschaftskritik, dem Versuch des Erwachsenwerdens und höchst amüsanter authentischer Sprache ergeben eines der unterhaltsamsten Bücher (für mich das unterhaltsamste) überhaupt. Unbedingt lesen
