Remember what should be remembered, and forget what should be forgotten.
The leading role Holden Caulfield is a sixteen-year-old school student who was born in a rich family. Although he is rich and kind, no one in the school likes to get along with him. So he always feels constantly lonesome. Such as like the book says “His loneliness arises from the fact that no one seems to share his view of the world, no one understands what's going on in his head.” In his view, school is a hypocritical place. The purpose that you go to school is only to get a good job or beat others.
The surroundings talk about wine, women and sex all days. Holden hates this society. He never puts his heart in study so he is always be punished by teachers. And when he is flunked out of school the forth time, he doesn't go home but stays in New York—the place where he was born and lived. That is just the time several days before Christmas. He lives in hotel, stays in the bars all the day, makes many girlfriends and drinks heavily.
At the same time, he feels sad about the teenager and the life. He feels what he never thinks before in the true life. He wants to escape from this society but he can't. This is just the background of Holden's story. During this time, Holden thinks of many things and many important people to him. Except introduces Holden's life in New York, the book also tells us Holden's life in school and some important people and things to him.
