I had the same problem with Tokolosh classifying Lord of the Flies as "cult". But it's a set text in school's in England, but not necessarily in other countries.
And conversely with Catcher in the Rye, it's not read in schools (at least not when I went to school) so I came at it fresh, knowing nothing about it, and its satuts as a cult novel is sound, in my mind at least. I loved it by the way.
