Holden keeps himself separated because he thinks they are a bunch of crooks and he does not like interacting with them. But to make matters worst, he does not like how phonies act and communicate with people. Holden feels that when Ernie is “playing the piano, he ‘sounds’ like the kinds of guy that won’t talk to you unless you’re a big shot” (80). Even though he thinks that Ernie would not talk to anyone unless they were a big shot, he is not certain that he would act in that way towards someone. Holden desires to separate and isolate himself from people that he might become such as phonies, morons, or hot shots.
He has a speech impediment which doesn't help him make friends. His only friends on the reservation is his family and rowdy his who is his best friend. He is surrounded by drunk Indians that don't care about their future let alone anything. Arnold ultimately grew up in hopeless place. He identified himself as an outcast and nerd because he was different than everybody else.
On one side Holden’s interest in human interactions drive him to find and build relationships of his own, but on the other hand he uses his alienation as a wall of protection from outside forces. An instance of this is when he goes on a date with Sally Hayes; his solitude forces him to crave love and affection from another human being but his isolation and fear of being hurt from another person cause him to drive off people easily. In conclusion we learn that Holden feels isolated from everyone and everything. In spite of living a seemingly happy life and going to one of the best schools in the country, Holden hates everything and everyone and believes everyone is fake. Holden’s sense of superiority is just a veil to cover his insecurities and his social criticism of everyone are just ways to project his negative qualities onto another person to make himself feel
Christopher changes into a stronger person mentally throughout the book. He is first represented as a boy with Asperger Syndrome, who is very blunt and does not understand the rules of socialism. He reacts quickly to situations he doesn’t understand or like by folding himself up into a ball and groaning, he also hates skin-ship with others as it makes him feel uneasy. “If a strange man touched me I would hit him, and I can hit people very hard.” As the book progresses Christopher finds himself in unfamiliar situations that make him have to face his issues, such as talking to strangers on his way to London, and allowing to be touched by his mother (even though he did not like it too much.) His sentences are always blunt and factual, there are never long describing words as Christopher thinks that it is far more logical to just say what you want to say without putting fancy adjectives in there.
The book is about a boy named Junior, who has a medical condition called Hydrocephalus which makes his appearance different than normal children. Specifically, he has bigger hand and bigger feet than normal people; particularly he has ten extra teeth that is much more than ordinary children who have thirty-two teeth. He has to defeat his weakness by himself such as poverty, losing an important friendship and struggling with stereotype. First of all, being born as a poor Indian in which he defines in a formula: “Poverty = empty refrigerator + empty stomach” (Alexie 8) makes him struggle a lot. He states that the worst thing about being poor isn’t because of not having enough food but not having enough money to support him in difficult times.
Junior’s Poverty One’s achievements are based on how hard one works. In The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, We are introduced to Junior a young Native American boy who wants to better himself and not follow in the same footsteps as his family or others in the reservations. He brings it upon himself to change schools and become someone, other than just another poor drunk Native American in the Rez. He is faced with many obstacles for leaving his school in the reservation and going to Reardan, an all-white school in the white part of town. During his experience he finds the true meaning of friendship, love, hope, as well as poverty and loss.
The effective noun ‘bees’ suggests Guy dislikes them because humans, as a group, are not particularly fond of ‘bees’. The verb ‘humming’ suggests Mildred is content and happy and has no care to talk to Montag and as they cannot simply talk to each other it highlights another fault. Guy is noticing these problems and realises that he and Mildred do not love each other as they should. Guy finds that this is common throughout his community and that it isn’t right, so he begins to rebel against it. Initial signs of Montag’s rebellion continue to occur throughout the novel.
He says, although most people enjoy chatting, he hates it because he finds it pointless. He doesn’t see social interaction as an end in itself, therefore talking to another person about an insignificant topic serves no purpose. He lives as an outsider as a result. He has very few friends and doesn’t trust other people. He feels content to read in his room by himself, and he even fantasizes about being the only person alive on the planet!
He had to have the extra ones pulled out by the Indian Health Service dentist, but since the Health Service funded major dental work only once yearly, he had to have all ten pulled at once, with only half the usual amount of Novocain, because the white dentist believed Indians "only felt half as much pain as white people". Junior also has to wear "ugly, thick, black plastic" eyeglasses, and is extremely skinny, with huge hands and feet. His skull is enormous, and he is prone to seizures. When he goes outside, he gets teased and beaten, so he spends a lot of time in his room drawing cartoons.” I think the world is a series of broken dams and floods. He thinks his cartons are tiny little lifeboats.
Indians like Junior can’t always get what they want or what they need. “Our white dentist believed that Indians only felt half as much pain as white people did so they only gave us half of the Novacain “ (Alexie 2). They are treated differently from other people and it is hard for Junior to be treated differently because he has a brain damage and he need a lot of services for his condition. Stereotypes affects Junior in many ways and it makes Junior live harder. Furthermore, when Junior transferred to Reardan , his best friend Rowdy left him.
