Gerçekten sıradışı, kemer ama komik değil, bir reklam adamı hakkında.
Oldukça yaratıcı ve zamansız. Onun içsel yansımalarını seviyorum ...
Oldukça tipik Coelho (en azından anlayabildiğim kadarıyla): bir kurtuluş alegorisi. Şeytan, köylülere rüşvet vermek için küçük bir İtalyan köyüne gelir, böylece insanlığın gerçekten kötü olup olmadığını bir kez ve herkes için öğrenebilir. Size olmadığımızı söylesem sonu mahveder miyim? “İlk etapta, vaatlere inanmamalısınız. Dünya onlarla doludur: zenginlik vaatleri, sonsuz kurtuluş, sonsuz sevgi. Bazı insanlar bir şey için söz verebileceklerini düşünür, diğerleri daha iyi günleri garanti edecek her şeyi kabul eder şüpheliyim, sizin durumunuzdur. Söz vermeyenler güçsüz ve hayal kırıklığına uğramazlar ve bu sözlere inananları tam olarak aynı kader bekler. "
this is a strange book. for starters, why is it called the catcher in the rye? the only reason i can think of is when he quotes that song "if a body catch a body comin' through the rye" and i still don't really get why its called what it is. can someone please enlighten me? secondly, the book was incredibly boring (no offence to the people who found it really interesting). it was so boring i ended up taking, instead of my usual few days reading a book, about a month reading this book even though it was so short. the main character, to me, was just so repetitive, pessimistic and annoying! while i feel like this is actually a key feature to the whole story with the repetitiveness, pessimistic-ness and annoying-ness lending a contemporary voice to the story and mimicing how we talk today, also making the story unique in literature, it still doesn't make it any less annoying! and god, does he really have to go on and on about every little thing? so people have different suitcases! do you really have to spend a whole freaking page on the subject?! i also feel like i'm missing the whole key point of the story. is the story told to describe how a traumatic event in someones life will realistically change you even if you deny it and how not everyone gets a happy ending or something? is the story told to reflect the harsh reality of life? i don't get it. can someone enlighten me on this subject too please? i've said this before, and i'll say it again: this book is strange. i don't feel like i've really understood the whole point of it but what i can say is that it is a very unique book. its very interesting when you think on what is being said SUBLIMINALLY and i guess, in general, its just a very poignant book. for everyone thinking about reading this book, its about a guy called holden. he got kicked out of every school his been to and is actually, at the start of the book, kicked out of his present school "pency". his very pessimistic though he doesn't realise it and the whole book is just about his experience between getting kicked out of the school and telling his parents about it and how he acts in that period. if you're thinking about reading it, some bad points include the fact that its very boring and annoying and repetitive and hardly ever and i mean EVER gets to the point. however the good points about it include that its very poignant and has a very interesting and very unique storyline. i will leave it up to you to decide whether you want to read it or not. cheers :)
I really liked the action and suspense in this book. I just wish there was giant twist at he end that left you hanging. It was pretty predictable,
