5.0 out of 5 stars Essential classics, 31 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Raise High The Roofbeam (Hardcover)
Recommend this reading for real literature lovers. You either love Salinger or don't get a clew what's it about. In this book there two stories about Glass family in usual Salinger style: talking about inner family relationship and their attitude to the outer world. The family is 'different' from 'normal', 'typical' people. If you like such a type, Salinger is your author. Not a lot of 'outer' action, everything is inside. Cannot say more, once you read something of Salinger, you get it. If you like it you want to read other his stories: Franny and Zoe, Nine stories, etc. Why I respect Salinger: he wrote his best and then stopped writing because he could not say more. If other authors would follow him, we would have less waste-paper.
