    Most people think 15-year-old Charlie is a freak. But then seniors Patrick and his beautiful stepsister Sam take Charlie under their wings and introduce him to their eclectic, open-minded, hard-partying friends. It is from these older kids that Charlie learns to live and love.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Perks of Being a Wallflower the most enjoyable?

    the reader's voice lends the character the requisite youth, innocence, and sustained self-exploratory tone throughout this emotionally searing piece


    What did you like best about this story?

    the delivery of the first person letter structure of this book is highly unusual, but incredibly well executed. the dramatic reveal at the end is delivered with heartbreaking honesty.


    Have you listened to any of Noah Galvin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the description of the bad acid trip and its aftermath was amazing


    Any additional comments?

    my daughter recommended this book to me as a late century Catcher in the Rye, which is a lofty comparison. there are similarities in that it tells the story of a misunderstood and damaged young man coming to understand how broken he is. i was surprised at how impressed i was with the story and it's narration. it was definitely well worth the listen.
