Seymour, however, is different. In every respect. From everything. I suppose that if you aren't already siblings with Seymour and Buddy then you won't like it very much. But if you are! Nowhere else in literature has an author written a book that makes the reader feel like he or she is reading the personal ramblings of his closest friend and confidante. This work is totally unique.
The second story is horrible. it wants to be about Seymour but its about that damn brother more than anything. "I just got sick so I couldn't write...", "I'm sitting in my room thinking about Seymour" and the portrayal we get of Seymour is superficial. Maybe that's the point, in that no one really knows anyone else. (although the hint that Seymour is the basis for Holden Caulfield is extremely intriguing) but how much do we have to hear about chic trends like Buddhism and ethnicity (our grandfather was Jewish, it says in a Zen Koan, etc.)that just aren't so cool anymore (he even takes potshots at Kerouac and folks, maybe because they were having fun with Zen.)
So the breakdown is five stars for the first story, 2 stars for the second story. If this is the story that sent Salinger into retirement because the critics were hurting his feelings, good riddance.

Carpenters is beautiful. For anyone with a brother that you've had to answer for or walks a different line than your own, you'll feel this one.Veröffentlicht am 30. Juli 2000 von Jacob Blair
I give this two stars only because of Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters which is a good story. Salinger's decline as a writer began after the publication of Nine Stories. Lesen Sie weiter...Veröffentlicht am 13. Juli 2000 von Paul Miller
I've never met anyone who feels the way I do about this book (well I've only met two people who have even read it), but I wasn't as entranced by it as I was hoping to be. Lesen Sie weiter...Am 26. Juni 2000 veröffentlicht

Raise High the Roofbeam is my favorite book, one of the few I read over and over. The characters are drawn with typical laser focus by Salinger, and I become completely absorbed... Lesen Sie weiter...Veröffentlicht am 24. Juni 2000 von Catherine Painter
Although Seymour is the main theme in this set of stories, he is not the central character. Rather these two stories show the development of Seymour's brother Buddy. Lesen Sie weiter...Veröffentlicht am 6. April 2000 von Caleb

Both stories are incredible, in different ways. "Raise High..." is a beautiful glimpse into both Buddy and Seymour (the diary entry about his scars was incredible). Lesen Sie weiter...Veröffentlicht am 2. Dezember 1999 von Jordan
