Anyone wanna recommend me some good quick reads?

I'm thinking something along Catcher in the Rye, considering I have to read the whole thing and write journals over the next 2 weeks.

Help me out! (The authors that are approved for this project are basically all classic American lit authors)

Thanks Again

Of Mice and Men
The Things They Carried

Those are really two good books. The latter is about Vietnam but it's not supposed to be a war book like Black Hawk Down or similar.

Catcher in the Rye is too typical. Not really much to analyze in every page.


I suggest Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck, who also wrote Of Mice and Men as Deemy wrote up there.

I've already read Catcher in the Rye I was just giving it as an example because I got through it extremely quickly, and I enjoyed it...

Also, I've read Great Gatsby which I thoroughly enjoyed.

You do not want to read this at all - it is so boring and drab. I couldn't even get past page 10. It's that boring.

Holes.

Lol, that actually happens to be one of my favorite books. The first book where I could really see what's happening.

To Kill A Mockingbird is a classic.
Strangers on a Train

If that's the case, you should write about Gatsby.

It has a lot of details; I think I still have my paper. If you need some reference, I'll put it up.

The Stranger by Albert Camus, very good book and is short. You can read it in about 2-3 hours if you take your time and take some notes while reading. It is about an existentialist and how society views him.

I recommend A Confederacy of Dunces it might be a bit long, but it was one of the funniest books I've ever read.

Grapes of Wrath, I believe, is 300+ pgs. I'm not sure about Gatsby, but I think you'd be straight doing Gatsby, considering how much you can write on it.

yeah Gatsby is loaded with things to write about...

I've always wanted to read Grapes of Wrath, but for this project I want something light and quick to read. I'd prefer waiting untill I can read Grapes of Wrath on my own time and really enjoy it then cram it all haha.
