Bez znajomości kontekstu książka jest dużo słabsza.

Jeśli czujesz, że bohater jest bardzo irytujący, a jesteś dopiero w pierwszych szkolnych rozdziałach, śmiało przewiń do momentu, w którym bohater szkołę opuszcza.

Wtedy robi się troszkę ciekawiej.



Bohatera można nawet polubić. Przynajmniej mam takie wrażenie.

Długo zachowuje się on jak dzieciak, co sam zresztą przyznaje. Dlatego też myślę, że gdybym przeczytał tę książkę mając mniej niż 18 lat, zrobiłaby na mnie większe wrażenie.

Review of 'The Catcher in the Rye' on 'GoodReads'

3 stars

Continuing on my journey of the classics, I picked up this book with a lot of expectations - and that's where I went wrong. Maybe if I had read the tagline "for teenage readers", the outcome would've been different.

This story is from the perspective of a teenage boy going through his high school year & revolves around his general distaste of people, alienation and angst toward humanity in general. We all have gone through this phase at some point in our life and that's why I could somewhat relate to his ramblings. Without spoiling much, I would say this is a good (and light) read, but probably not a book amongst "the great literary classics".
