The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald – Challenged for language and sexual references.
The Catcher in the Rye, JD Salinger – Challenged for being “anti white” and “obscene.”
To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee – Banned due to the words “damn” and “whore lady” 🙂
The Lord of the Flies, William Golding – Challenged because the book is “demoralizing inasmuch as it implies that man is little more than an animal”
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Ken Kesey – Labeling it “pornographic,” they charged the novel “glofiries criminal activity, has a tendency to corrupt juveniles and contains descriptions of bestiality, bizarre violence, and torture, dismemberment, death, and human elimination.” (I’ve never read the book, now I wonder why?)
The Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien – Burned in Alamagordo, N. Mex. (2001) outside Christ Community Church along with other Tolkien novels as satanic.
And yeah, right – Frodo IS the anti-christ.
