Yes, I also really like early Salinger's books. Especially Catcher in the Rye.
By the way, did you know that Above the Catcher in the Rye is considered a dangerous book? that in many countries it is prohibited, or with a mark of eighteen plus. I read about this in the essay samploon.com/free-essays/catcher-i... when I wrote the article for the magazine. And I found out that it all started when an article appeared in the Times about the fact that many serial killers called this book their favorite.
