So I just read Catcher in the Rye because everyone says its a must read. Supposedly it's very popular with crazy people and psychotics. But I gotta say, it just came off as a book about teen angst. It was a good read, but I didn't find it life altering. Maybe if I was 16 I would have been more engaged by it. I'm pretty sure everyone was a teenager once and knows how it feels. I mean, look at punk rock, it's all saying the same kind of thing.
