The Catcher in the Rye, (thanks to The Perks of Being a Wallflower)
Oh and Looking for Alaska was really good, couldn't put it down so pretty much read it in one sitting. Looks like I've found my summer hobby
I recently read Catcher in the Rye and Perks of Being a Wallflower too, (but in the reverse order to you). I loved Perks of being a Wallflower but I thought Catcher in the Rye was more subtle and in parts ambigous which gave it a bit more substance.
My brother said he'd buy me a kindle for my birthday So I've been looking at loads of kindle books, I've nearly ran out of books I can borrow from house mates

I did exactly that too! Was suprisingly less impressed by Catcher in the Rye than Perks of Being a Wallflower.
Just finished The Fault in our Stars, try not to spoil it for anyone, but i think its the only book thats actually made me full on cry so good though
Well I'm half way through The Catcher in the Rye and have to say so far, I agree with you!

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger. I'm liking it so far.
How far are you into it? I'm reading it too, nearly half way through and still haven't found the meaning of the book... The American spellings threw me off at the beginning too, it reminds me of The Death of a Salesman though, not the storyline, but the speech.
