À Espera No Centeio

À Espera No Centeio

A voz do seu protagonista, o anti-herói Holden Caulfield, encontrou eco nos anseios e angústias das camadas mais jovens, tornando-o numa figura icónica do inconformismo. Da mesma forma, os temas da identidade, da sexualidade, da alienação, e do medo de existir, tratados numa linguagem desassombrada e profundamente original, fizeram de The Catcher in the Rye um símbolo da contra-cultura dos anos 50 e 60. Mas, passados sessenta anos sobre a sua primeira publicação, vendidos mais de 65 milhões de exemplares em quase todas as línguas, e instituído marco incontornável da literatura mundial, À Espera no Centeio mantém toda a actualidade e a frescura da rebelião.

    If I could give this book a zero, I would. I absolutely hated it. Generally, I don't hate books, either. Usually it's a very strong dislike, and generally, I give them a second chance. But no, I will ...

    My theory as to this book's unusually polarizing nature: either you identify with Holden Caulfield or you don't.Those who see themselves (either as they were or, God help them, as they are) in Holden ...

    5.0 stars. I LOVE IT when I go into a book with low expectations and it ends up knocking me on my ass. Admittedly, this is tougher to do with "classics" but it certainly happened in this case. I remem...

    I read the end of The Catcher in the Rye the other day and found myself wanting to take Holden Caulfield by the collar and shake him really, really hard and shout at him to grow up. I suppose I've und...

    In my hand I hold $5. I will give it to anyone who can explain the plot of this book (or why there is no plot) and make me understand why the hell people think it's so amazing....

    Sometimes truth isn't just stranger than fiction, it's also more interesting and better plotted. Salinger helped to pioneer a genre where fiction was deliberately less remarkable than reality. His pro...

    J.D. Salinger’s ‘Catcher in the Rye’ was published on July 16, 1951. It was his first novel. It became very popular among young adolescents yet not so popular with older generations. I personall...
