    Oh, I forgot to add Thoreau's Walden.

    Nowadays most of that book feels like bullshit from a misanthrope. But at 14 y/o, "discovering" that money and status were not the most important things in the world and that technology is a disgrace was mind blowing.
    Was Thoreau a pre-Incel?

    I understood the symbolism pretty well.

    I didn't get to "catcher in the rye" until college. I probably would have gotten more out of it if I got to it earlier.
    I have more of an affinity towards "Franny and Zooey" .

    I had a teacher in the tenth grade who got me hooked on Kafka.

    I was carrying around my Lovecraft and Clive Barker. She told me if I wanted to read something really scary, I should go for the short story "In the penal colony"...
    she was right... One

    I should think that, were you to read Catcher in the Rye again, you would relate to the underachiever Holden Caulfield.

    Christ Recrucified by Nikos Kazantzakis

    Catch-22 by Joseph Heller was such a fun and interesting read as well.

    Conversation in the Cathedral by Mario Vargas Llosa.

    If you got a romanian copy I'd be very surprised.

    I've read a huge amount of Russian and foreign literature, but now I feel books just like movies don't shape my life. I prefer documental books for years aswell.

    When i was kid on the border of teen ages I loved Stephen King's horror fiction.
