    I'll give you Catcher in the Rye but To Kill A Mockingbird is a classic.

    Holden Caulfield rocks. 'Swrong with you lot?

    Although I'll grant you it probably takes an alienated misfit to identify.

    Catch 22 - one of the few books I've read more than once, and the only book more than twice. <ok>

    Another school classic (along with Of Mice and Men) but one worth revisiting as an adult.

    Clancy books are **** now.. I read the series of books with patriot games etc in all good books and geeky re weapon technology..

    The jack reacher books by Lee childs are great reads.. An they are about to ruined by turning them into films with Tom cruise playing reacher.. If you like those books read Harlan coben also as he has a series of books with the main character myron bolitar.. Great books an I enjoy his writing style..

    His psycho sidekick, Win Lockwood III, is the real star of those books.

    The Killer Inside Me by Jim Thompson is well worth a read, and Grapes of Wrath as previously mentioned ; To Kill A Mockingbird is also a classic - though I didnt appreciate it , as well as many others ( catcher.. Lord of The Flies , etc ) when made to read them at school......how can you enjoy a book you are "made" to read ?

    No wonder the kids are revolting.

    written from a strange perspective ....if I remember rightly the whole thing is pretty much only his internal monologue...or some such thing.

    I can't recommend this book highly enough. An amazing insight into a young man who became a monster.
