Hey guys, I need a book for an English project, and I was hoping the Pit could help out.

I need an American novel or play that was published before 1970, and it has to be around 200-250ish pages or less. +Many points for a book that doesn't have too many chapters/scenes.

Don't suggest To Kill a Mockingbird or Death of a Salesman, since we're not allowed to use books we've already read in class.

Thanks guys

Brave New World. Don't remember who it's by but it was written in 1932. It's a great book.

I hate that book. And yes, Aldous Huxley.

It's not an American novel though.

+1 to The Great Gatsby

Thanks a lot for the suggestions I really appreciate it.

I've settled on these three: A Catcher in the Rye, On the Road, and The Great Gatsby. I'll figure out which one to get tomorrow.

All of the other books you guys mentioned were either too long (like Catch-22, I think it has around 400 pages) or not American (like Clockwork Orange and Brave New World), or even too short (The Old Man and the Sea), but still, thanks.
