Beschreibung

Anyone who has read J.D. Salinger's New Yorker stories, particularly A Perfect Day for Bananafish, Uncle Wiggily in Connecticut, The Laughing Man, and For Esme--With Love and Squalor, will not be surprised by the fact that his first novel is full of children.

The hero-narrator of THE CATCHER IN THE RYE is an ancient child of sixteen, a native New Yorker named Holden Caulfield. Through circumstances that tend to preclude adult, secondhand description, he leaves his prep school in Pennsylvania and goes underground in New York City for three days.

The boy himself is at once too simple and too complex for us to make any final comment about him or his story. Perhaps the safest thing we can say about Holden is that he was born in the world not just strongly attracted to beauty but, almost, hopelessly impaled on it.

There are many voices in this novel: children's voices, adult voices, underground voices--but Holden's voice is the most eloquent of all. Transcending his own vernacular, yet remaining marvelously faithful to it, he issues a perfectly articulated cry of mixed pain and pleasure. However, like most lovers and clowns and poets of the higher orders, he keeps most of the pain to, and for, himself. The pleasure he gives away, or sets aside, with all his heart. It is there for the reader who can handle it to keep.

Jerome D. Salinger wurde 1919 in New York geboren. Seit 1941 veröffentlichte er diverse Kurzgeschichten, 1951 folgten der weltbekannte "Fänger im Roggen" und bis 1963 drei weitere Romane. 2010 verstarb Jerome D. Salinger.

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
