A book and a song I like.

One of the books that I liked most was "The Catcher in the Rye" (O Apanhador no campo de centeio, in portuguese) by J.D. Salinger. It's about a 16 years old boy, named Holden Caufield, who studies in a school far from New York, where his parentes live. He failed and he's expelled. But it happens on Sunday, and he's supposed to be home only on Wednesday. Because of this, he has some adventures and reflections about life. I recognized myself in some parts, because I used to be like Holden when I was his age: I thought that everybody was dumb and hypocrite. It must be typical of this age.

I just can't decide what's my favourite movie because there are many special ones, so, I'll skip it. The song I picked up as one of the most important for me is All These Things I've Done, by the american rock indie band The Killers. Perhaps, this is not "the song of my life" (I don't even know if there's one), but it's very special for me. It talks about existencial matters and never giving up on something.

  1. I can swear we were supposed to write about our favourite books too. But anyway, now you know what's mine. Best wishes.

  2. I think it is great that you shared about your favorite book too, Ricardo. My favorite book is the Bible.
