Oh my God. This book has made such an impact on me. 10/10 would recommend. Charlie is an extremely relatable character and the way he thinks is very similar to the way I think and its honestly helped me through so much.
I chose this book because my son recommended the movie and I didn't have time to watch... :)
I'm so happy I did. It's a wonderful lige lesson and eye-opener! I just love it!
Well narrated, also.
Top 3 for sure.
The first time Charlie stated "I feel infinite".
He makes Charlie seem younger than he was therefore more innocent.
Definitely, but partly because i had previously watched the movie and they had left some details out.
If they could take the cast of the movie adaptation and apply it to the upcoming "13 reasons why" mini series I personally feel that it would meet mine as well as many others expectations. While this is a review of "The perks of being a wallflower" I think that both books are brilliant and should be read/heard by any YA in our generation. The movie was good the book was excellent, I am very glad to have stumbled across them.
Charlie's coming of age.
Remembrance of suppressed memory which really impacted Charlie's childhood.
Very sympathetic reading without being overly dramatic. I felt like I knew Charlie personally.
The moment of Charlie's great revelation of cause of childhood trauma.
I love how Patrick and Sam took Charlie under their wings and guided him through his first high school years.
This book was surprisingly unentertaining and plainly boring. The descriptions are excruciatingly basic and the storyline is practically the same as every other kids upbringing, and yet at the same time it isn't quite believable or captivating. I do not recommend.
I would highly recommend this book to someone in the age range of 15-19. Very relatable to this time period of life for a lot of us.
Awesome book of characters. Each one brings their own flavor to the story. I found myself relating with Charlie a lot in the book. Although my situations and experiences were considerably different, the experiences of high school - the challenges - the social situations that develop who you are, and how you handle things - what it was like on breaks - the messy situations you find yourself in - etc.
Narrator was perfect. I watched the movie after listening to this, and really wanted the main movie character to sound more like Noah. Excellent performance.
Yes. Hooked on it from the beginning.
