Catcher in The Rye is my favorite book of all time.

I understand; I'd probably have to say the same. :)

Thanks for making this! I faved it without commenting earlier and I hate when I do that. >_< It's really good! =]

Did you hear that they found 15 manuscripts of his? They're probably going to get publish is my guess, but I will be a bit upset if they do, since they are not being published with his permission. =/

Thank you!

And no, I heard nothing! But I'm damn interested! 15 manuscripts!!! Nice!

Don't be upset, nobody writes anything if they don't want, at some point, someone to read. Salinger just didn't want them published while he was alive. If he had wanted them to remain unread forever, he would have burned them, but that's clearly not what he was going for.

I heard that he wrote 8 hours a day for 40 years. You'd not do that if you didn't want anyone to read! Besides, you can't publish anything if the author explicitly said you couldn't. His children, I guess, are the owners of his work now. I really hope those books exist! That's the only thing that could somewhat cheer me up.

That is very true. =]

Woah! That's crazy! 0.0 He must've really been full on dedicated to his writing.

I really respect him for staying out of the public eye and not letting the fame get to him. It really shows that he does what he does because he loves it and not for the fame like a lot of authors nowadays do.

Agreed, although I'm glad I was born in 1982, because if I had been an earlier fan, I would be dead by now and could never read his work. Imagine if you were a teen in 1951!

That would suck! D= I mean sure the 50's were cool (Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash, etc) but things were so much more strict, morally especially.

So yeah, it's good to be young! xD

You know, I actually think things were LESS strict than today, with all the political correctness and what not. Also, back, if you said something stupid on TV or in front of your friends, not everyone had a camera and could make the whole world see it forever on the internet... xD Maybe some day we'll start regreting the old days (especially if stolen pictures of your intimacy get on the internet! Gah!)

Politically, things were less strict (in the US at least). Many drugs were still legal and such. BUT things were much more hush hush. So even if you were doing bad things, they were not openly or even known about in many cases.

But those are very good points. xD Though those haven't really happened to me. Which is good. o.o
