I refuse to read Catcher in the Rye on principle at this point.

I don't think I've ever heard anyone say anything pleasant about the book.

I give up on a lot of sci-fi and fantasy rather quickly if the universe isn't engaging/ is obviously a ripoff of something else.

Why does every sci-fi author feel the need to turn their space-opera or space-western into Starcraft tropes?
