#7 The Catcher in the Rye.jpgHolden Caulfield writes like a real person. He really does. When you get to know Holden, you get to like him. He can be a bit difficult to like, I’ll admit, flunking school and all that stuff about telling lies. You see, Holden tells lies and all, but he thinks the real world is populated by phonies. I don’t know, maybe that means he’s a hypocrite or something. Anyway, he thinks all his roommates are phony, but he misses them when they’re not there. When he goes into New York, he meets moron taxi-drivers or moron lift-operators. Everyone is either a phony or a moron. That is apart from his kid sister Phoebe, ten years old, who he quite likes. Phoebe is the best thing in Holden’s life. She really is. The truth is, you see, Holden is down and doesn’t know how to ask for help. So he acts all immature and everything when he calls up and meets people. Then people just think he’s strange or something. The best thing he can do is start writing down his thoughts and all that. It really is.
