This book is the weirdest oddest strangest book ever. It makes me smile,laugh,sad,concerned,and disagree. Thats not why its strange,it just is. I have no other words but this:I love this book in the most odd way
Perks of being a wallflower was a good book. I didn't expect it to end like it did. But it did leave me wondering what happened next.
I love this book. There are A Lot of parts in it where I was uncomfortable and I decided not to listen when my brother was in the car. But I couldn't stop listening because Charlie was just like me. Figuring out the world, trying to understand how it worked and where we fit. He spoke volumes of what was always in my mind and I've never felt closer to a character before. I wouldn't recommend it to most of my friends for fear that they knew what I once chose to listen to. But if it was someone I was close to, really close to, who I knew wouldn't judge me but try to understand why this book was so important to me, I would ask them to read it. Because I found that I wasn't alone.
Amazing book, thought provoking and throughly entertaining. Told from the perspective of a teenage boy its interesting to see the world through his eyes and experiences.
I think this book is so beautiful and amazing, it really is almost the book of my dreams. The narrator is perfect and it really feels like Charlie is reading, this feels like my best audible read in a while. Please oh please get this book, it is so much pleasure to read!

well written, there are good characters. The story is funny story but not likely to make you laugh.
To me books, movies etc... must have a meaning to them. Well I could not find any here other than remembering my not so great adolescence. Maybe I have to watch the movie to find out if there was supposed to have a deeper meaning to the book other than just a weird teenager talking about his life. Movies usually go straight to the point.
I don't want to spoil it, but Charlie is not a skizo as is seemed to me at some point during the book, I thought that his best friends were created by his imagination.
It feels like big brother on the first person, when you are watching the show you just get glimpses of what is happening since the producers have to cram a whole day into a few minutes.

The previous paragraphs were written while I was reading the book.
Yes, there is a point to the story, but you won't make you fell better in the end. And you just really understand what is going on at the very end of the book
I really love the narrator in this book. You can tell this guy is a teenager himself. It gave more heart I think than if it had been an adult reading. definitely worth listening to.
