Catcher in the Rye (Sophomore Year) was terrible. It was by far the most boring thing I've ever been forced to read.
Well that's an uncommon view. I didn't hate the book per se. I just didn't find it deep at all or meaningful. It's about a whining, complaining rich kid and nothing more. I hated Holden. He needed a good ol' fashion smacking.
American Born Chinese in 11th grade. It was a fun book, but it felt like a completely waste of time. Especially since we spent months analyzing it, but I finished it during study hall.
I wanted to read something compelling, not a comic about teaching children to accept themselves.
