There were definitely stories in here that I preferred more than others. Just Before the War with the Eskimos was particularly memorable with characters that were truly individual, and both A Perfect Day for Bananafish and Pretty Mouth and Green My Eyes both had excellent dialogue that felt wholly convincing.
Who am I kidding, Salinger is brilliant 2. Who am I kidding, Salinger is brilliant at dialogue full stop - I felt like these were real conversations I was privy to. However, a lot of the stories fell quite flat for me, and I just found them that little bit dull. Now and again I saw a glimmer of something I thought was excellent the use of italics in Just Before the War with the Eskimos for example , but for the most part I didn't feel inspired to keep picking up this volume.
I can't recommend it or not recommend it, because I think you're either a fan of Salinger or you're not. Io e Salinger non andiamo proprio d'accordo.
Un paio di racconti quasi piacevoli, ma non mi piace lo stile, lo trovo davvero noioso. I once heard JD Salinger's writing described as "rich people complaining about being bored. Nine stories, every single one of which was of upper class being bored in a way that makes the reader bored. At one point, I stopped reading this to go burn through a more exciting book, and the only reason I could make myself return to it was because I was down to a single story incidentally, the closest any story comes to being the "best" one o I once heard JD Salinger's writing described as "rich people complaining about being bored.
At one point, I stopped reading this to go burn through a more exciting book, and the only reason I could make myself return to it was because I was down to a single story incidentally, the closest any story comes to being the "best" one of the group.
The writing was bland, the dialogue repetitive feeling without actually being repetitive, the characters empty and flat, and the stories went absolutely nowhere. I kept trying to assign meaning where there was none, and trying to imagine excitement where, again, there was none. I normally like Salinger, but this one?
Only read it if you really feel the need to have read it. Otherwise, you won't have missed anything particularly important. Or interesting, for that matter. Gli amici di anobii, ed in particolare i membri del gruppo Americana Contemporanea, sono per me una quasi inesauribile fonte di ispirazione letteraria.
Le varie edizioni della Top 50 o dei tornei a tabellone tennistico mi hanno offerto nel corso degli anni eccezionali spunti di lettura, facendomi conoscere libri divenuti imprescindibili nella mia collezione. Per quanto mi riguarda, mi schiero dalla parte dei detrattori.

It is a collection of nine unrelated stories that are some of the most depressing that you could possibly read, for example the first one is completely a phone conversation between a young girl and her mother who is most concerned about the mental state of the girl's evidently new husband who is suffering from PTSD. Cut to the beach where is young husband is playing with a child and tells her a bizarre story.
Then he comes into the hotel room This book is just what the title suggests that it is. Then he comes into the hotel room where his wife is sleeping.
He then picks up a gun and shoots himself. The other stories are also disturbing. I kept reading as I thought there would be some connection and maybe something more positive would happen, but not really. I can objectively say it was a good book, some stories better than others. I enjoyed some of the characters and hated others, however I was never invested in any of the stories or characters.
I will always enjoy Salinger's writing but I prefer to read The catcher in the Rye nine times over these short stories. However I am not a good judge since i've never really enjoyed short stories. It was good but not my style and I probably won't remember anything of it by next week. Tutto qui? Una roba modaiola, pre-hipster, molto furba. More stories about bored and depressed rich people, along the lines of Fitzgerald but less beautiful and more bitter. I enjoyed some of the stories, however the style of Salinger's writing in the short stories differed greatly from reading CITR.
At the end of each story I felt there wasn't too much to be left feeling, and that I had to analyze lines more directly instead of looking at the overall meaning.
While the stories weren't too boring, I felt like they weren't compelling and just acted as Salinger's thoughts. I don't think I overtly enjoyed a single one of these short stories, each of which relies way too heavily on meandering dialogue and in which very little happens. In Nine Stories, however, I found it hard to comprehend the relationships between Salinger and his characters he used in short stories that dealt with bananafishes, an al J.
In Nine Stories, however, I found it hard to comprehend the relationships between Salinger and his characters he used in short stories that dealt with bananafishes, an alcoholic wondering on whether or not she was a good girl while growing up, and a starving artist adjusting to life as a teacher dealing with noises on the other side of his bedroom.
I wonder what if would have happened if Adam and Eve were not tempted by the serpent? The bookend stories were the best. The attraction is to read these stories for some hints about the Glass family.
I find something disturbing about this family, or more on target, the reaction of readers to the Glass family. Seymour could clip his toenails and readers would find in this activity some symbolic comment on The Eight Fold Path or perhaps, the essence of Zen in the manner Seymour tosses the clippings into an ashtray. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. Sometimes you don't like a story The bookend stories were the best.
Sometimes you don't like a story because it's weak and not because you missed the East-Salinger Symbolism.

Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? A collection of nine exceptional stories from the acclaimed author of The Catcher in the Rye 'This is the squalid, or moving, part of the story, and the scene changes. The people change, too. I'm still around, but from here on in, for reasons I'm not at liberty to disclose, I've disguised myself so cunningly that even the cleverest reader will fail to recognize me.
For Esmé - with Love and Squalor: And Other Stories by J. D. Salinger
A few weeks ago I went to a book reading in Manhattan. It was some sort of networking event, and as I met people I probably would never meet again, I came across a women who introduced herself as Esme there's an accent over the "e" I don't know how to make on my computer. It sounds laughable, but come on, when would I ever get to say a line like that again? I half expected a happily shocked face, followed by a lovely back story about growing up reading Salinger in a little French village somewhere.
