That was the same book Mark David Chapman was carrying when he shot John Lennon in the 80s. Chapman was in jail for a few years, according to CNN. A complete never before seen controversial version of Chapman's murder story while he was reading "The Catcher in the Rye" by J. D. Salinger (warning: this website may contain offensive language) is shown here: Link
I know the story, it's old news. You've read the book right though haven't you? there's nothing to incite that behavior. Humans try to palm their actions off on items so they don't have to take responsibility. Video games, rock music and apparently even books
I asked you if you had even read the book and do you find the story to be anything that would incite violence? If you want to claim this book has anything to do with murder than maybe you should analyse a more deserving candidate such as the bible
It was an interesting piece of Art - not really a good written or timely Book - but a nice Piece of Art about a young Man who was at the brim of throwing his live away in the cold and bitter times after WW2. Nice One!
This is amazing! Beautiful representation of the scene. I don't know if this was intentional or not, but partly what I like most about the picture is that the rain makes it blurry so the characters are hard to see, leaving room for imagination, and the blurry-ness also makes it less image-y, when you know that Holden hates the movies and Salinger hates how image-reliant the world is. Apart from that, it's very skillfully drawn.
