Holden Caulfield

Holden Caulfield is the fictional main character of J.D. Salinger's "The Catcher in the Rye". He narrates the story of his adventures in New York City after getting kicked out from his school, Pencey Prep. His adventures may not seem too extraordinary, but it is his voice that defines the story. His outlook on life and the way that he describes it gives the novel much of its appeal. Teens who read the book often connect with Holden with feelings of alienation, maturation, and general cynicism.
