Catcher in the Rye had a profound affect on 16-year-old me. It wasn't as good as I remembered when I read it again a couple years ago, but it still pretty much stands as the book of teenage angst.

One of the very few American authors I like.

Isn't the Catcher in the Rye required reading for serial killers?
Seriously, how many of them were caught with a dogeared copy of this book on them?

So does that mean it's a really good book? In my serial killer class it was only "recommended"...not required.
