Je ne suis pas un grand fan de roman d'amour (à l'exception de Jane Austen), mais j'ai vraiment apprécié ce livre. Une sorte de livre d'histoire-fiction-romance. C'est très intelligent et bien écrit.
J'ai adoré Franny & Zooey bien que ce soit un roman particulier mais intéressant. Au collège, je suis passé par une phase Salinger, lisant tout ce qu'il avait écrit sur lequel je pouvais mettre la main. Bien sûr, il est un romancier culte depuis des années, reclus et secret. Catcher in the Rye est vraiment son chef-d'œuvre à mon avis.
This book is very misunderstood. After I started reading it I caught some of the previews and was saddened to see that it was disliked by many. I figured the read would be so bad that I would have to give up on it. THEY were wrong... I found myself very invested in watching, through words, one mans descent from upright do-gooder into an insane mad killer whose impulses were out of control. The path Bob, the protagonist, took seemed to make complete sense from his own perspective. People very seldom realize how fine the line is between good and bad decisions and most people strongly believe they would never do the things Bob has done. But the truth is we never know what we are capable of until it is tested. So, personally, I was fascinated by Bob's story and was actually quite happy with the ending.
Really enjoyed this book. One of those in between books that are well written and enjoyable to read, but not written well enough to be called "literature". None the less, this book is a classic in it's genre.
