I could not find "Catcher in the Rye", so I read the study guide. It was a disappointment. My choice.

I have read WW II history all of my life. I enjoyed this book. It ends with one of the most surprising "white hat - black hat" tales I have ever read.

I want to know more about Bundy's family background. I am fascinated by psychopaths. They all include ALIENATION, EXILE, and ABANDONMENT; little can be done to RETRIEVE them.
