Pretty much any book that can be described fully in a few sentences is not worth reading. Here’ what “Book-A-Minute Classics” Website had to say about Catcher in the Rye:

Holden Caulfield
Angst angst angst swear curse swear crazy crazy angst swear curse, society sucks, and I’m a stupid jerk.
THE END

And just for fun, here’s their summary of The Jungle:

Bad things happen. Worse things happen. Better things happen. Awful things happen. Jurgis discovers socialism and gets all happy.
THE END
