I think it'd be something you'd like. Vonnegut that is. As for Salinger, you could try reading something else of his that isn't as hyped, or else just give Catcher another try. If you're gonna read something else you could try Nine Stories

I remember reading the TIme Machine, The Pearl by John Steinbeck, Black Boy and Native Son by Richard Wright, The Crucible by Arthur Miller, a few things of Shakespeare and a bunch of books I can't be arsed to remember plus a bunch of short stories.

I wouldn't know, but the problem is if a book series is planned to be that long it feels like the characters are waiting around for something to happen, if it's not planned then the writer seems to run out of ideas.

Ahh, good old Kafka. Yes, I remember that.
Do you like Patricia Cornwell? She has a nice set of little crime/thriller like books.
Though to be honest, the book I've had the most fun reading so far, purely on the literary level at least, would have had to be Cinnamon Shops, by Bruno Shulz. But it's not a book that most would enjoy reading.
