Holden’s childish ways cause him to never mature and figure out who he is as a person. We see many signs of Holden insecurities throughout the book, like the fact that he contradicts himself. An example of this would be when Sally and Holden are in the taxi and he tells her he loves her, he then counties to say, “It was a lie, of course, but the thing is, I meant it when I said it” (Salinger 139). Someone who is confident would not lie and play with the emotions of someone else. Another example of Holden contradicting himself would have to be when he hired Sunny, a
Holden is not acting like an adult throughout the book, every time something unusual happens he thinks about killing the person behind the event. He is full of hatred and anger throughout the story.

In fact, the narrator states that his voyeurism “could (…) have been mistaken for the fevered concentration of a Peeping Tom,” but “that wasn’t [his] fault, that wasn’t the idea” (Woolrich 1). The voyeurism he experiences was only a direct effect of his injury and isolation from the rest of the world. Meaning that, had the narrator not been injured he probably would not have partaken in voyeurism habits. Through his perspective, it was only his way of passing time and feeling sane. Even though he is invading and intruding into other people’s lives, the gratification he gets will only be temporarily and more than likely will stop once his injury is healed and he is allowed to be part and interact with society
After a few of David Sedaris’ humorous essays, I had thought that I had finally grasped his tone as a writer, but after only a page or two of “You Can’t Kill the Rooster,” I had found myself not only wrong, but also in the midst of complete hysterics. The way Sedaris describes his brother, Paul, plastered a smirk on my face that would later transition into a full-body convulsive fit of laughter. Because of Paul’s vulgarity in his choice of words, at first I was hesitant from writing about it, but honestly it was just too darn funny not to. Sedaris’ tone while recalling his brother’s most vulgar comments was in my opinion, pure comedic gold. One of my personal favorite of Paul’s sayings is “if she’s old enough to bleed, she’s old enough to breed,” which might I add, is true.

This may have affected Moon Shadow’s point of view because if he is joking around by using a bad point of view he won 't talk about how happy he was that everyone helped out but he might say things that are a little funny like people that were going to loot but didn 't when they saw them. Ms. Burke 's point of view is that she likes how people acted during the earthquake and Laurence Yep 's perspective is that Moon Shadow doesn 't like the looters or the fact that people
