Throughout the whole book, Holden calls most of the characters a “phony.” In terms of Holden, phony means people who acts fake and are hypocrites.

Out of all the reasons given in the book, the realization during the carousel scene, the talk with his psychoanalyst, and the confession of desiring certain people’s presence stood out the most. It also shows how much Holden has change as a character. He was able to let go and accept the reality at the end of the book.
