Stream of Consciousness
The technique of the narration is a form known as "stream of consciousness." While the book proceeds in a
rough chronological order, the events are related to the reader as Holden thinks of them. Wherever his mind

wanders, the reader follows. Notice how his language often appears to be more like that of a ten-year-old than
that of a smart sixteen-year-old. This is a continuing demonstration of Holden's unwillingness to grow up and
join the hypocritical adult world that he despises. Holden's conversation in the Wicker Bar with Luce
demonstrates this reluctance aptly, when Luce expresses annoyance at Holden's immaturity.
