1 My first impression of this book was that it was going to be repetitive and boring because it was in the style of reading all of the authors thoughts For example the author started out discussing characters and going into depth with each one in a sort of whining fashion After reading the first chapter or two I was wondering to myself if the entire book would be the author complaining about everything 2 The events in the story take place in the few days between the end of the fall school term and Christmas Holden Caulfield the sixteen year old narrator fails out of his school and spends the next couple nights by himself going wherever he pleases He meets a variety of people and goes numerous places while staying New York City During his travels he is avoiding his parents and is not sure about his future Holden is involved in the main conflict which is his need for isolation versus his need for companionship The climax of the story is when Holden goes back to his house and sees his sister Phoebe 3 I like Holdens sister Phoebe because she brought out youthfulness in her older brother Holden She made him feel very good inside and made him have a more care-free attitude Whenever he was around Phoebe he didnt complain as much and he felt good about his life He recalls his own childhood when he sees her and he enjoys her company I disliked Holden because he found problems with everything and everyone He was always pointing out things that he hated and had a very negative outlook on life He never gave up a chance to say something bad 4 The overall mood of the novel was gloomy because Holden is never happysatisfied throughout the whole story He is judgmental of everyone and always thinks of the worst The style of writing in this book
