Perks of Being a Wallflower: Stephen Chbosky
“Charlie is a freshman. And while he’s not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it.”
Rating: 2/5 (it was okay)
I think this is one of those books that you either love it or are “meh” about it. Don’t get me wrong, I think the premise of the book is fantastic, I just did not gel with the main character Charlie. It irked me that he cried on almost every page, sometimes even twice. The author did not change the formula for the crying episodes either. It was always XX happened and I cried. I mean c’mon! I was a huge fan of Sam’s character, I think she is totally rad. The book was okay, and I know that I will probably watch the DVD once it comes out.
