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.

  1. Klassiker
    Ola Stefan Göransson, 27 juli 2015

    första gången jag läste boken funderade jag mest på hur den kunde inspirera mark chapman att skjuta lennon. Men om man kan ta sig förbi den initiala funderingen och läsa boken för vad den är: en fantastisk skildring av en introspektiv ungdom på väg mot någon form av mental sjukdom så är den mycket imponerande.

  2. Underbar bok
    filip hammarberg, 12 september 2014

    En fullständigt underbar bok, en av mina absoluta favoriter, men den är nog inte för alla: man kanske skall vara en person som gillar funderingar och introspektion, annars förstår man nog inte varför vissa saker händer.

  3. Raljerande
    Marie, 21 augusti 2014

    Hur denna bok kunnat blivit en klassiker övergår mitt förstånd.
    Det är ett ständigt raljerande och uppräkning av samma typ av fraser, ord och händelser.
    Det är en pina att ta sig igenom den.
