Catcher in the Rye
I really did enjoy this one. The tone was fantastic and the first person viewpoint is hard to pull off for most writers. The dismissive attitude of the protagonist could have easily been overdone but it was just the perfect amount. In chapter 14 when I just started to notice it Holden has his meltdown and everything starts to come together.
