It's been a while since I've read it, but I remember it being quite good. I read it as a pre-teen. Now I'm 18 (19 in a few weeks), so I'd probably relate to it a WHOLE lot more know. I should read it again.
For my Short Story class, I'm reading J.D. Salinger's Nine Stories. (Salinger wrote Catcher in the Rye, as most of you probably know.) They're just as good; all of them are very interesting.
