I agree with a lot of the list, but – I have to admit – I really hated On the Road. I’ve wondered if I should give it another chance. I read it in college and thought it was pointless. But maybe I would enjoy it more now that I’m older.
Two of my favorites, To Kill a Mockingbird and The Great Gatsby, are also on the list. I also really enjoyed The Catcher in the Rye when I was in high school (to the point that I read it multiple times). But I recently tried to re-read it, and it wasn’t nearly as good as I remembered. I imagine it speaks best to a certain age-group (which would obviously make sense given the age of Holden).
