     Moved this here, as even tho it was triggered by B's comments about RedOne, I was takin it a bit far off the subject :D

    There was a great documentary on TV here in US recently on the author, JD Salinger, and after seeing it I just had to finally break down and read this book :-)   It is so completely hysterically funny and yet sometimes sad at the drop of a hat, which I guess is what makes it great. It takes place in NYC, so I identify with it alot. Some of the language is a little dated -- slang of the times @1950--but the outlook? Totally modern. I'm reading it in on a free pdf http://english-4u.net/online/documents/THECATCHERINTHERYE.pdf  I think the hero is around what you once said was your age....

 I'm actually surprised it gets recommended in schools: it goes against everything they teach ;-) Don't want it to end......just reading like 10 pages a night!
