If you are looking for short stories I would recommend theses authors: Grimm Brothers, Joseph Conrad, Ernest Hemingway, J.D. Salinger, ALbert Camus, Mc Knight Malmar, Flannery O' Connor, and John Cheever.

A decent list, yes. But add Edgar Alan Poe to the top of that list.

It is about his journey into adult hood and how it is people's undoing, falling off the cliff, to grow up. The book is really complex and I suggest it to any young adult. Try spark notes.

I read it a few years ago... I think I just wasn't intense enough for it :P

To be honest, I thought it sucked, too. It was hip to read it when I was in high school so I did. I had friends who loved it, embraced it. I never understood why. Maybe it was the *masturbation.

* In the book, not by my friends. Though I'm sure they...nevermind.

Even tho I have been an avid reader all my life, I have never read Catcher In The Rye. I have threatened to many times but never did. Don't know why I didn't. The only reason I wanted to read it anyway was to see what all the hoop La was about. They removed it from my HS library. I think that was why I wanted to read it :laughing:

Now Madame Bovary I did read as a teen and I did like it :D
