    Charlie Gordon knows that he isn't very bright. At 32, he mops floors in a bakery and earns just enough to get by. Three evenings a week, he studies at a center for mentally challenged adults. But all of this is about to change for Charlie. As part of a daring experiment, doctors are going to perform surgery on Charlie's brain. They hope the operation and special medication will increase his intelligence, just as it has for the laboratory mouse, Algernon.

    If you could sum up Flowers for Algernon in three words, what would they be?

    Dreams of mice and men

    In a league of its own, I have not been impressed with a book of this caliber since I have read it. I love this book

    Do not have a particular scene, I just am I'm pressed with the whole story

    Complementary, surprising,


    What other book might you compare Mockingjay to and why?

    Don't want to ruin it for other readers.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not good with reviews but I will be listening to this series of books again. Don't really like to watch the survival series on tv but the 3 books in this series are interesting and it pulled me into it.

    Before cell phones that fit in the palm of your hand and slim laptops that fit snugly into briefcases, computers were like strange, alien vending machines. They had cryptic switches, punch cards, and pages of encoded output. But in 1975, a young engineering wizard named Steve Wozniak had an idea: What if you combined computer circuitry with a regular typewriter keyboard and a video screen?
