Hi, I’m Holden and you’re probably wondering how I got here, I live in New York and I’ve probably been to every school in a 50 mile radius. The story “The Catcher in the Rye” is how I got here, what I went through, all the people I met and my lousy childhood. Throughout my childhood I’ve been depressed, especially after my little brother Allie died,
Scene 1 Holden and Sunny
"She stood up and pulled her dress over her head. L certainly felt peculiar when she did that. I mean she did it so sudden and all. I know you're supposed to feel pretty sexy when somebody gets up and pulls their dress over their head, but I didn't. Sexy was about the last thing I was feeling. I felt much more depressed than sexy."
Scene 2 Holden at the Museum
"The best thing, though, in that museum was that everything always stayed right where it was. Nobody'd move. You could go there a hundred thousand times, and that Eskimo would still be just finished catching those two fish, the birds would still be on their way south, the deers would still be drinking out of that water hole. Nobody'd be different."
Childhood is a period in which a person was a child. You get to remember things that you cherish so much and miss doing as a kid. On the other side, growing up is when a person gets to go from a child to a teen, from a teen to an adult, etc. Both of them involve having memories of good and bad things during those stages.
During this scene, Holden tries taking a big step into his life by making a big decision. He hires a prostitute, Sunny, and invites her in, but after a while he seemed to not want to make the decision to “do it” with her. He was scared and nervous and just really wanted someone he could actually talk to and someone to listen to him.
Description:Holden enjoys going to the museum because nothing changes, and makes him happy cause it reminds him of his childhood. He enjoys it so much because it’s nice to see something stay the same when everything around him changes so much.
