The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky

the book i read was about this kid named charlie he write to somebody unknown and hes discusses his past and other thing like when his aunt died and bestfriend commited suicide hes a very good reader and writer and his english teacher notices that. he befriends two seniors and together they go on adventures and charlie has his first kiss. he also has flashbacks or traumatic expierences

 

   This book connects to the world because there are alot of cases where kids might have been molested or might have been in a traumatizing events and that might cause them to be as not social as the other kids and do and go through some of the things that  charlie also goes through on a daily basis.

 

   I would reccomend this book to other people because its a good book and you can learn some stuff from reading this book. Also because its kind of realistic. i would reccomend this to people that like young adult fiction.

Not For Me
The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky

Audiobook I dropped this at 50%. It was just okay for me, I couldn't relate the the characters and disliked the format. The narrator was fantastic

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower Review
The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky

I read this in one sitting, I simply could not put the book down it was so lovely to read a book where there wasn't any vindictive characters or an 'Evil person' that had it in for the main character. I never believed that one book could address so many events at once and not have it overwhelm the main plot line and just helped develop the characters. I really loved the format of the book with charlie sending letters to someone who is anonymous which helped me to connect to Charlie.

 

I felt that even at my age I could relate to Charlie at certain aspects with his life, seeing Charlie develop from being alone and then finding people who let him in and helped Charlie become his own person in the end and Charlie was able to develop as a person. This book was a nice read because nothing really dark happens and it allowed me to always be smiling whist I was reading which was a nice change to the mix of emotions I normally get when I am reading.

 

I would recommend this book to anyone that wants a quick read and anyone that loves reading a book that does address a lot of different subjects.

 

Thanks for Reading this short review.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower
The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky This is one of the few times I've seen the movie before reading the book.

Overall it was a great book with an honest look at a teenager's struggle with abuse, depression, and anxiety. Some parts were painfully relatable to. Other parts disturbed me because of the casualness with which underage drinking and illegal drug use is treated. Maybe good from an adult reader's perspective, not sure how I would've felt reading it as a teen or what thoughts I would've had. I think I'd still recommend it for late middle school readers.
