Nah, it's okay. I'll definitely look it up.

 

Did you ever read The Catcher in the Rye?

It's about an angsty rich kid having misadventures in New York, to sum up the plot, but on a literary level it's about the progression from childhood to adulthood, with the main character, Holden Caulfield, stuck in the middle. He views everyone as "phonies" and the adult world as the epitome of this. He's somewhat misanthropic in his views and ideals, and a lot of them I can identify with.

Cool. Have you read Brave New World? It's about a world where baby's are tube made and conditioned for certain jobs. The world encourages recreational sex and drugs to control society. Iit's a very philosophical read filled with thought provoking ideas.

I've heard of it, but never what it was about. That description sounds godly; I'll have to look into it.

A great book that I've been rereading is the Pendragon series. A stellar story and idea and a great long read you can really get settled in to.

The Dark Side of Paradise.

Not sure who the Author is, seeing as I read that book long ago.
