SUMMARY ¹ The Perks of Being a Wallflower Charlie is a shy and introspective boy a wallflower always stan. We accept the love we think we deserve I ve seen nothing but good things about this book but never given it a try The internet is full of uotes from the story and I think you d be hard pushed to find someone who s never at least heard of the title this book has than 1 million ratings on Goodreads and the film was well reviewed tooCharlie is a socially awkward freshman writing letters to an unnamed friend He tells his friend absolutely everything from his homework assignments to his first erection and so much Image result for the perks of being a wallflowerSource TumblrThis is a short book but it is packed with some difficult and heavy subjects including suicide domestic abuse drug use rape and abortionI didn t enjoy this book as much as I had wanted to and I found the writing style and structure to be somewhat tiring Charlie writes with innocence and the author has chosen his sentence structure and grammar to represent this I understand the techniue and have really enjoyed other books like this in the past but on top of those tricky subjects this didn t make for an easy or enjoyable read 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 carAnother point I m somewhat frightened to admit to you all is that I didn t feel sad and I wasn t really affected by this book in any way Am I too cold hearted Probably I felt the story was a little too melodramatic for my tastes but I certainly understand why people love it I also give it huge credit for addressing these topics especially those so increasingly faced by teenagers today I think that if I had read this when I was younger I d probably have enjoyed it a lot but at this point in my life it wasn t for meOverall rating Contrary to popular opinion I didn t love The Perks of Being a Wallflower and the writing style was most responsible for this I didn t hate it but I just didn t feel it was for me 2 stars
