It's Stephen King.

You would've made a horrible President.

You're right though, there aren't many of these.

I'm reading The Gunslinger now, pretty good so far.

I also liked the first three Halo books (I haven't read the fourth).

I second Ender's Game.

Johnny Got His Gun (I'm pretty sure that's under 300), one of the greatest books ever written in the history of history.

The Body by Stephen King. The film 'Stand By Me' is based on it.
Flirtini's all round!!
#22
The Stranger-Albert Camus
The Symposium-Plato
A Clockwork Orange-Anthony Burgess

Those are just a few. But it really depends on the version of the book you get.

Quote by Room On Fire
The Stranger - Albert Camus


You're going for L'etranger which translates to The Outsider.

The length of a book bears no consequence on its quality.


Edit: the best short story is Bartleby, The Scrivener by Herman Melville.
Friends, applaud the comedy is over.


I'd dance with you but...

That was the book that got me thinking about this thread.

That was a really good movie.

Flowers For Algernon (I'm pretty sure it's in the high 200's)
It's about a mentally challenged 37-year old man named Charlie Gorden who is accepted to be part of an experiment to artifically increase intelligence. The book is written entirely in the form of progress reports that Charlie writes to himself in accordence to the neurologists' wishes. This makes the book all the more interesting, because at the beginning, his spelling, grammar, and punctuation are atrocious. I'm not going to tell you anymore, but I would recommend it highly.

I loved lots of Hinton books as well.. 1984 is like 310 pages. Close enough.
It's difficult to win unless you're bored.
#35
Anyone know any other books that are similar or authors that have a similar writing style as the author of the catcher in the rye? I really liked it, and I would recommend this book to everyone who doesn't usually like to read a whole lot.
