When distilling him down, it is near impossible to go any deeper than the obvious points. Danny Saunders possesses a brilliant mind, and often feels passionately about his beliefs, but he is constantly searching for the solution to the pain in his life and the lives of others. The Chosen makes it quite clear that Danny has a brilliant mind. So brilliant, in fact that Reuven’s father calls him “a phenomenon.” “Once in a generation is a mind born like that.” (110) Danny’s photographic memory and instant recall allow him to have a

This affectionate term also contrasts with the father’s vision of the “boy packing his shirts [and] looking for his keys,” which accentuates the undying love between the father and son (15 & 16) .

Despite the father’s agonizing visions, the son remains patient and continues to ask for a story, and their relationship remains “emotional” and “earthly”--nothing has changed (20-21).

Holden, who has been consistently disdainful of the ‘phonies’ in his family like D.B. and those he interacts at Pencey Prep at the beginning of the novel, shows rare pathos in the way he describes the personality of his younger brother: Allie Caulfield. He genuinely believes that Allie was, “the most intelligent member in the family.
