I have loved this story ever since I saw the movie version, "Charly," with Cliff Robertson. So I was looking forward to reading "Flowers for Algernon." The audiobook did not disappoint. The narrator did an excellent job of adapting his voice to the many characters in the novel, which enhanced the listening experience. The story, which was originally a short story and was expanded by the author into a full-length novel, was as moving as the movie had been. All-in-all this was an enjoyable audioibook.
I loved this book. It is an excellent portrayal of a family in crisis and presents many moral dilemmas. The courtroom scenes are outstanding. Kept me guessing until the end. The narrator was good, but not great. He had difficulty changing his voice to portray different characters.
