The Perks Of Being A Wallflower
Fifteen year old Charlie is coping with the suicide of his friend, Michael. To lessen the fear and anxiety of starting high school alone, Charlie starts writing letters to a stranger, someone who he has heard of but never met in person.
At school, Charlie finds a friend and mentor in his English teacher, Bill. He also overcomes his chronic shyness and approaches a classmate, Patrick, who, along with his step sister Sam, befriend Charlie and take him under their wing.
During the course of the school year, Charlie has his first date and his first kiss, he deals with bullies and makes friends, loses them, then gains them back. He creates his own soundtrack thourgh a series of mix tapes full of ironic songs, reads a huge stack of classic books, and gets involved in the school production of, the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Charlie is a wallflower; a typical outsider. He knows the world is a very difficult place and is entering high school. The story of The Perks of Being a Wallflower is told solely through Charlie’s letters to a nameless acquaintance. Stephen Chbosky’s first novel has been a coming-of-age sensation. I was captured throughout the entire book by Chbosky’s distinctive ‘writers voice’. The Perks of Being a Wallflower had something for everyone and was extremely significant. The novel constantly provoked emotion in me with hundreds of sayings that were very relevant. “We accept the love we think we deserve,” is one of the most common quotes of the story. The movie, released in 2012, was a massive hit already receiving several awards.
“So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be.” Anyone who enjoys a love story must read this book immediately.
'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' is a book about a young boy named Charlie who goes through depression due to family problems and his best-friend dying the year before. When he starts highschool he writes a diary; he feels as though the people reading it won't judge and will just listen so he is able to get all his emotions out. Once he starts high-school he doesn't really fit in and befriends his teacher as his first friend, but throughout time he finds a group of seniors and hangs out with them. They make him feel special and he falls inlove with a girl that is much older than him and his best-friend. He has a fall out with his friends and his depression gets really bad, but they manage to fix it.
I would say that the best part of the book is during the times that he talks to Sam and he becomes really close with her. This book is similar to 'Cyber Bully' due to them both being about depression, (kind of). If I were to produce this as a movie I would add music that is more chilled back, olded dayed and a type that creates suspension. In my opinion this is a veey good book and is very interesting.
I am a person that loves to escape in a book and leave this world going into another. This was definately an amazing book and one I love but it was too much for reality to fit in my confort zone. It's a great book and I devaloped a personal love for Charli
This is one of the best books i've ever read! It is very well written and I couldnt put it down. It is quite a short book which I was happy about since i'm not a very fast reader. It is a fantastic story.
An amazing book. Truly left me breathtaken
