    I just finished 'Franny and Zooey' for the 3rd time...its probably my fav book...'catcher in the rye' is probably my fav book again, I dont know why exactly i start this thread, i just wanna say that the Glass family is the best thing in the universe and i hope someone will go deeper about this.

    PS1, If you like Salinger dont you EVER read the book his daughter published about him.

    PS2, If you never read him and you liked the The Tenebaums, its time to introduce your self to the real deal

    PS3, !@#$%, i know you'll be all over this.

    Catcher in the Rye one of my favorites as well. As far as film comparisions, the film Igby Goes Down draws some seriously close comparisions to Catcher in Rye. and i really cant complain about that one bit.

    I havent watched that one, sounds like i must. I cant really say The tenebaums have extreme similarities but the whole mood is definatelly Salingerish..cant complain either.

    I had the bad luck of reading Catcher in the rye at 19...i still believe that its somehow a teenage book, not meaning nayve but i feel that it speaks louder in your teens. Franny and Zooey on the other hand was at best synchro...never in my life a book had so many similarities with my life and the way it moves.

    we can have a zoot suit riot:lol:

    yea i know that was uncalled for

    i read catcher in the rye for 11th grade english and it was probably one of the most enticing books i had read. so i read it couple more times and everytime i read that book i felt that something new was shown by it. i cant really explain better then that. but it was very well written

    about franny and zoey... i wish i could say that i read more than the first thirty pages, but i havent... i started but somehow failed, maybe it was because they were writing about the city in which yale is located and i was living there at the moment, i do not know...
    but, if you have not seen Igby Goes Down, i suggest doing so. I believe it is out of DVD now all over the place... very very strong comparisions to Catcher in the Rye... def worth your while and Claire Daynes is in it and she is hot.

    I will definatelly check it out pedro, thanx for pointing it out. As far as F&Z goes, i hear ya...sometimes for unidentified reasons we cant keep up to some books or movies..its weird. Anyway, since you liked the Catcher so much, i'd say give F&Z a second try, or not.

    I purchased Franny and Zooey two days ago and read 40 pages since...Pedro, what the hell are you talking about? The first 40 pages are a conversation and have nothing to do with locale or anythign else you might get bored by despite where you live.

    Igby goes down is a good movie, but it is not great. It is a good set up followed by a deflating sociopathetic ending...books from the early 20th century and movies based on this period (or written in this style such as Igby) all have some form of aristocratic financial character involved. This is because it allows the lead figure to explore whatever the writer was desiring to put out there in a way that the reader could accept. Its a cop out in my eyes, not a complete loss but played out...




    thanks for inspiring me to get these books
