A title?

Holden goes through soooo much in just few short pages. Its incredible really. Holden acts a lot like a child here, Ive noticed that the more pressure he is under the more he sways to either super mature or super childish. When him and Stradlater got into it he decided to be immature. For example when he says "you go wash your face" and says moron every other word, that's really childish. Which I can understand because I miss childhood more than almost anything. It was the best, no worries nothing bothering you. There wasn't any great social issues going on. You didn't have to worry about looking cool 100% of the time. Being an adult is the opposite. Everything you do is big decision and you have to take care of every aspect in your life. Man.


  1. I agree with you on the fact that Holden was acting really childish when he was fighting with Stradlater. I also agree with you on the fact that childhood was easy breezy and you didn't have to care what people think. Society today kind of forces us into this environment that you have to be a certain way to get by.

  2. i really agree tristan. holden is really childish and becomes more childish with all of the extra pressure he gets put under.
