The Catcher in the Rye/Franny and Zooey/Nine Stories/Raise High the Roof Beam by J.D. Salinger

I found The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger, to be a wonderful book, one that I truly enjoyed. I thought it was fascinating how the author got inside of the main characters head, Holden Caulfield, a sixteen year old boy from Pennsylvania. The novel takes place on a long weekend during the late 1940s or early 1950s in Pennsylvania as well as New York. The story begins where Holden describes his stay at the fancy boarding school in Pennsylvania called Pency Prep.

The story is told through the voice of young Holden, who is reflecting on the events that have recently occurred. He is dealing with a psychological conflict where part of him wants to grow up and mature as an adult, while the other part of him wants to act and remain a child. We see a good example of this as he tries to interact with other people, he becomes conflicted whether to interact with them as an adult, or as a child.

The title, Catcher in the Rye, has to do with the song, “Comin’ Thro’ the Rye,” by Robert Burns. I that Holden begins singing as he is walking through the streets. When asked what he wants to do with his life by a friend, Holden replies with an image from the song. He states that he would like to protect the children from falling off the edge of the cliff by “catching” them if they were on the verge of tumbling over.

I enjoyed this book, and I would defiantly recommend it. It is a sad book during some parts, and very sad at others, but overall, a great book. As you read the book, the main theme of loneliness and self-protection, never feeling good enough about oneself. The inability to know when to grow up from childish acts is also demonstrated throughout the novel, as shown by the example of various interactions with other people.

Franny and Zooey is a book by American author J. The book focuses on siblings Franny and Zooey, the two youngest members of the Glass family , which was a frequent focus of Salinger's writings. The story takes place in an unnamed college town during Franny's weekend visit to her boyfriend Lane. Disenchanted with the selfishness and inauthenticity she perceives all around her, she aims to escape it through spiritual means. While actor Zooey's younger sister Franny suffers a spiritual and existential breakdown in their parents' Manhattan living room, leaving their mother Bessie deeply concerned, Zooey comes to Franny's aid, offering what he thinks is brotherly love, understanding, and words of sage advice. The short story concerns Franny's weekend date with her collegiate boyfriend, Lane Coutell. Lane takes her to a fashionable lunch room, where Franny quickly becomes exasperated when he only appears interested in conversing about the minutiae of his academic frustrations.

Or even to anyone wondering what to pick up after A Catcher in the Rye. One of the hardest to get around remains the strange shape of the book. Deadgod observed :. Looking at the books as a series as Salinger clearly did , it makes sense to start with the earlier Glass stories. The astonishing A Perfect Day for Bananafish, and the insight it gives into the character and demise of Seymour Glass throws everything that follows into stark relief. Indeed, it seems so intimately bound up in the narrative of both Franny and Zooey that it astonished me to learn that it was originally published in the New Yorker in nearly 10 years before Zooey came along in
