Franny and Zooey
Franny and Zooey | J D Salinger
The author writes: FRANNY came out in The New Yorker in 1955, and was swiftly followed, in 1957 by ZOOEY. Both stories are early, critical entries in a narrative series I'm doing about a family of settlers in twentieth-century New York, the Glasses. It is a long-term project, patently an ambiguous one, and there is a real-enough danger, I suppose that sooner or later I'll bog down, perhaps disappear entirely, in my own methods, locutions, and mannerisms. On the whole, though, I'm very hopeful. I love working on these Glass stories, I've been waiting for them most of my life, and I think I have fairly decent, monomaniacal plans to finish them with due care and all-available skill.

Written in his very distinct style. Absolutely a book and stories for another time. But enduring themes - and the sibling relationship ships are beautiful

I was not expecting such a powerful ending. Wow. I finished last night, thought more about it this morning, and reread the last couple pages again. Uplifting, and encouragement for a new year.

this has gotta be where The Royal Tenenbaums comes from. boo boo‘s married name is even tannenbaum.

message at the end is good. i remember liking the bit about the reaching for ring at the end of Catcher in the Rye. the narrator of “Seymour: An Introduction” denounces endings, but salinger has a knack for them. he‘d dislike that.

4 stars

Franny & Zooey Glass are two of seven siblings who have all at one time or another appeared on the radio show It's a Wise Child. The book is comprised of two parts-a short story & a novella, but they work together as an organic whole. In the first part Franny has a nervous breakdown while on a date with her boyfriend Lane. She returns to her family's Manhattan apartment to recover, where her mother & brother Zooey live with physical👇

vivastory reminders of their absent siblings, a couple of said siblings having tragically died. Zooey, an abrasive personality, attempts poorly to talk Franny out of her emotional turmoil. By the end...well, if you want to know, you'll have to read it! I *really* don't understand the hatred that Salinger gets. The only explanation I have is that people read him too young, when really he should be read when you're younger AND when you're older. This was a 2y
vivastory reread for me. I recall when I first read it when I was 19, I very much thought it was an okay book with some humorous passages. The humor in it still stands BTW.
Listen, I'm not about to engage in bs false equivalency here, but in our age of rancid demonization of others, I thought the message of F&Z of hating not people but their ideas couldn't be more relevant today. Once we get to F&Z talking to one another, it's a bit like an older Holden
2y
vivastory Caulfield & a slightly less jaded Harriet (where are my After Claude fans at?) arguing their philosophical & theological world viewpoints. The last page of F&Z was swoon worthy. Loved! 2y

I read this book is part of a 2021 reading challenge. I will admit, I didn‘t get it. The style was a strange one for me, as the book contained only two chapters. The second chapter was a few hundred pages long. I know that J. D. Salinger is a very famous author, and he does have a way with words. Perhaps if this book was about a subject that I had interest in, I would‘ve liked it better. To me, this book did not go anywhere.

Caffeinated_Reader Their approach to one another and everything around them was comical and at times so real and honest I couldn‘t help but look off in space and think about times I was in similar situations. Reading Zooey‘s story was my favorite. He‘s so witty and sarcastic and charming. I loved how most of his dialogue took place while sitting in a bathtub lol all of it at first in the bathroom. 2y
Caffeinated_Reader It also made me realize how quiet I‘ve gotten in life. It made me miss who I used to be. I used to be someone who always had something to say and add to a conversation and could talk all night about anything but somewhere along the way I stopped that and became so emotionally constipated lol it makes me wonder if people still actually have full on conversations (edited) 2y

Thanks @Blaire for the tag! #favs
It‘s hard to pick 3 & if I thought about it , I might pick 3 different ones.
1.Franny & Zooey for some reason , one I read again nearly every year
2.The Hearts Invisible Furies -John Boyne .Not many contemporary novels fire on all cylinders for me , this one did.
3. Handmaids Tale- Margaret Atwood The fact that the society described here seems more likely than it did in the 80s when it was published, horrifying!

rajithr Tough one, although if I may choose from 3 different genres, it would be The Godfather, Lord of the rings and The Tell Tale Brain 📖 2y

This was the second J. D. Salinger book I ever read, after I completely fell in love with Catcher in the Rye. The characters are so flawed and unlikeable, yet there‘s something so relatable about their struggles in life. It‘s definitely one of those books I find myself going back to time and time again.

Happy New Year, Litsy friends! Starting the new year with a classic. Franny was my last read of 2019. Zooey and I are starting the new year/decade together. And I learned that today is J.D. Salinger‘s birthday so I‘m especially digging that bit of bookish serendipity. For a number of reasons, 2019 was a slow and off reading year for me. Hoping to pick it up for 2020. Happy reading, friends!

I wound up really loving Franny and Zooey. All the "goddams" felt really awkward, and the way Zooey spoke to his mother was a little obnoxious, but the book made a really profound point, and I loved the conversation Zooey had with his sister. I also kept picturing it as a play for some reason. Loved it.

I just loved the Glass family and all their snippy banter. We meet ‘Franny‘, the youngest of these Manhattanites, visiting her pompous boyfriend at college, as she has an existential crisis over lunch and martinis. Then we meet brother, ‘Zooey‘. As his mother becomes an interloper to his peaceful bathtime, and begs him for his help with Franny‘s latest breakdown, their sniping made me laugh out loud!

A college story about a girl (Franny) who‘s trying to figure out her place in the world and her relationship with the people around her; her brother Zooey is her ultimate lifeline and helps her out of a mental breakdown. It‘s mostly dialogue and a lot of smoking—but I think this is an important piece of literature.

(I didn‘t like the way Zooey treated his mother though. That bugged me.)

This is one of those books where the passages are so beautiful that they demand to be read aloud. The Glass family is one of the most unlikable literary families I have read about, and yet I love every single member. This book tells about Franny and her brother Zooey, who are, my opinion the two most flawed in the family, yet somehow are still deeply relatable.

Amazing. I wanted to jump into every scene. It was told with such lush detail I felt as though I had know these characters my whole life. The plot is quirky and explores deep existential questions while still coming off as not too pretentious. The family dynamics are whip smart and as the woman who sold me this book said: "After you read this you won't look at yourself in the mirror without thinking about this book." Read to find out why!
