Holden feels very badly over his brother Allie's death mainly because he died so young. Allie was two years younger than Holden. Allie's death seems even more of a waste as according to Holden he had some great qualities. He was intelligent, good-natured and always laughing. Holden has not been able to come to terms with his death at all. It appears that he was the only person - apart from Holden's other younger sibling Phoebe - who Holden was really able to get on with. Holden is also unable to believe that Allie is now in a better place.
