    Overall, coming from a person who doesn't like reading. The book was decent it was kinda flat for me until the end. I like action =D

    Im a junior in highschool also

    I never liked it (probably because of the 'forced' aspect). I believe students should have a reading list they can select from and know the curriculum in advance so they can read over the summer if they choose.

    My two favorite books so far that i had to read in school (High School) are Probably Animal Farm and Lord of the Flies. Two books that my friends say are terrible i like lol. Favorite short story though has got to be Most Dangerous Game. Gotta love Zaroff the man hunter!

    Possibly the most overrated book written in the English language.
