FGSFDS - Technoviking

Maybe we had a good reason to hate that book.

Roundtable Pictures talks about how teachers ruin Catcher in the Rye by trying to present it as something it isn't. (AmSpecBlog)

I avoided that book like the plague, deliberately taking forensics and grammar courses in high school to avoid being assigned what people had been sighing over as a "classic". I'd been reading classics for a long time, and I was pretty sure nothing this damn popular with English teachers qualified. It still doesn't sound like something I'd want to spend any time on now.
