If my fiction prof is right and all good books are about sex and death...

* To Kill a Mockingbird is 80% death, 20% sex
* The Catcher in the Rye is 50% death, 50% sex (and 100% overrated)
* The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is 75% death, 25% sex
* Wuthering Heights is 25% death, 75% sex (I'm guessing, I never finished that wretched book)
* The Road is 100% death, 0% sex
* The Great Gatsby is 2000% death, 2000% sex
