    "The Catcher In The Rye is a classic but i dont really see how a song reference has anything to with it. It doesnt help the plot along. Im sure there are better options that fit the story."

    "I thought it was boring and dull. It moved too slowly and the characters weren't well developed. I never felt connected or even interested in any of the characters. "

    "This book is a classic and required reading for many for a reason - it's really good, and it's messages are important (but often misunderstood). Anyone who hasn't read it yet really should, the story is compelling and the message will stay with you long after."

    "It's a really good book, but not for me. I've never been a fan of Ernest Hemingway. This book is considered a classic by many, but for me I found it kind of boring. "

    "Although this is very much a fictional book, it gives real life instances into the life of drug addiction and the process of how it plays out. I hate to see the life of how woman (and really men) get trapped into drugs and how their lives spiral out of control. It is very much a hard area to overcome. This book would def be a wake up call to never begin drug use. Price is good and I could add to my phone to read on the go."

    "This book contains a song name in its title. Interestingly, the song is actually a reference to the book rather than the other way around. Both Mississippi Bones and Diesel Christ sang a version of it. This is a fun pop culture book reference in the sci-fi genre."

    "The song the band Ramones wrote for the movie has become an iconic part of this story. The story is about a family who moves to an old house in rural Maine where they come across a path to a "pet sematary" where people from the area have buried their pets. Deeper in the woods they find an ancient Indian burial ground, and the story starts when their family cat dies. The story is very chilling and the author considers it his scariest novel. Must read for all horror fans."
