, and not sound like a Lifetime movie, but The Perks of Being a Wallflower is not an example of that For me, the straw that broke the camel s back was when I realized that, to add to all of the above mentioned melodrama, the narrator was either emotionally or mentally handicapped It appeared, Charlie s inability to identify any emotion within himself besides sadness, his constant crying, his lack of knowledge at the age of 15 what masturbation was, his failure to understand any social situation like a rape while witnessing it in his teen years was indicative of e Wallflower noun a shy or retiring person who remains unnoticed at social events, especially a woman without a dance partner I decided to read this book not because there was going to be a movie coming out soon.
It one of the reasons but then again it wasn t the main one.
I wanted to read it because the word wallflower caught my attention.
I was a wallflower.
I was not one of those kids people notice immediately.
I was one of those people who blends in very well that I was no longer noticeable.
I was a nobody.
I was one of those uncool kids back in high school that almost no one spoke to because I always kept to myself.
I was insecure.
I was scared that if I try to talk no one would listen.
Actually I think I still am even though I am already working.
I am still a February 25, 2013Dear Charlie,I am writing to you because I feel like you re the only one that would listen to me right now From all the friends that I have made you are the one that s the most understanding I guess what I m trying to do is thank you for being there for me these last couple of days I didn t expect to learn from you as much as I have My mom always says that you can never really understand a person until you walk in their shoes, but I guess getting to know you and reading your story did just that I have to say you have stripped me from any prejudice I might have had And I am truly sorry if I had any You showed me that no matter what happens, what we experience, we always have a right to feel the way we feel
Clueless I am clueless The popularity of this book baffles me even than the popularity of The Fault in Our Stars Maybe I really am just a coldhearted person with no feelings.
Amazingly, I actually managed to start The Perks of Being a Wallflower knowing absolutely nothing about it I ve avoided all the reviews and hype over the years, I ve purposely put off seeing the movie because I wanted to check out the book first I knew nothing except that so many people LOVE this book I was a bit sceptical from the very first page when 15 year old Charlie s narrative opened with short, choppy, fragmented sentences I don t think that there is a favorite kid in our family There are three of us and I am the youngest My brother is the oldest He is a very good football player and likes his car My sister is very pretty and mean to boys and she is in the Standing On The Fringes Of Lifeoffers A Unique Perspective But There Comes A Time To Seewhat It Looks Like From The Dance FloorThis Haunting Novel About The Dilemma Of Passivity Vs Passion Marks The Stunning Debut Of A Provocative New Voice In Contemporary Fiction The Perks of Being a WallflowerThis Is The Story Of What It S Like To Grow Up In High School More Intimate Than A Diary, Charlie S Letters Are Singular And Unique, Hilarious And Devastating We May Not Know Where He Lives We May Not Know To Whom He Is Writing All We Know Is The World He Shares Caught Between Trying To Live His Life And Trying To Run From It Puts Him On A Strange Course Through Uncharted Territory The World Of First Dates And Mixed Tapes, Family Dramas And New Friends The World Of Sex, Drugs, And The Rocky Horror Picture Show, When All One Requires Is That The Perfect Song On That Perfect Drive To Feel InfiniteThrough Charlie, Stephen Chbosky Has Created A Deeply Affecting Coming Of Age Story, A Powerful Novel That Will Spirit You Back To Those Wild And Poignant Roller Coaster Days Known As Growing Up Back Cover As much as people say it, this really is one of my favorite books of all time MTV promoted it, it got a lot of press, so many people shun it and say it is overrated I disagree.
I didn t read this book until last year, when I turned 21 My boyfriend owned it, it seemed like a quick read, and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.
Main character Charlie is loveable from the first sentence out of his mouth There are endless quoteable quotes in this book that had me folding the page over so I could write them down later Charlie has an honest innocence to him yet such an intense depth and intelligent mind that he is quite the multifaceted character.
While the story has its ups and downs, and really, there isn t a very intense plot, the reader is somehow sucked into Charlies head sharing his first kiss, his feelings toward hi Charlie, we accept the love we think we deserve That is quite true I have stumbled across many beautiful sentences, throughout my reading, and ones that make us think but, this one, is my absolute favorite of them all.
There is so much that can be said about this, yet I don t seem to find the right words, but I will try my best It was such an emotional, deep and realistic story The plot was simple, if we only look at it as a whole, but every detail contributed to make it an incredible read And every character to make this story an unforgettable one for us.
Charlie was the sweetest male character I had ever encountered in a read.
What I loved most about him though was how honest he was and how he wasn t afraid to tell the truth Some exceptions apply, of course, but he felt so bad for lying that he made everythi I don t even think I can truly convey how much I loved this book other than to say it was entirely life changing and I m so upset it took me this long to read it.
