The narrator of The Catcher in the Rye is an adolescent obsessed with saving children from the dirtiness he sees in the adult world.

What Holden thinks he likes about youth is just his idealized notion of what children are like. He's not in love with childhood; he's in love with a fantasy.

The more Holden connects to other people in The Catcher in the Rye, the more depressed he becomes. Here are just a few examples.
