    Yeah, I couldn't wait to be done with it. I found Holden so exasperating.

    I did notice how he only connected with the children in the story, and how his memories of his late younger brother seemed almost envious - as if Allie dying before he reached adulthood elevated him to some special place. And of course Holden's inability to "step across the threshhold" and actually lose his virginity is so blatantly about not wanting to grow up.
