The Buddha Of Surbia, The Beach, and Catcher In The Rye. I'd be hard pressed to say what my favourite is out of those three.
Does anyone else think that god damn sonuvabitch Holden Caulfield (protagonist of Catcher In The Rye) might have something like AS?

I dunno, I don't think Holden had AS. He was just intense and angst-ridden, as many adolescents are.

Yeah, Ender's Game rocks! Who is everyone's favorite character? Peter! The Ender series were all great, but the Shadow series absolutely sucked! First OSC attributes Ender's defeating the buggers to Bean, and secondly he makes Peter sound like an absolute idiot when he is anything but. He spent way too much time glorifying Bean and the other Battle School graduates. Peter and Ender were comparatively equal as far as talent and intelligence, and Ender kicked the other Battle School children. Yet OSC depicts Peter as being lesser than the other children. Perhaps Bean is more intelligent, but he also basically ignores what is the key abilities of the Wiggin children: the ability to read people and manipulate them. For that reason, he absolutely belittles Peter until the final book of the Shadow series, where he finally begins depicting Peter as a master planner and manipulator. Even Maser Rackham gives him kudos. He knows Peter's abilities, and the impression that OSC creates is that Peter's appearing stupidity is merely an act and that he is manipulating events more than we are seeing. Yay Peter!!
