THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER Stephen Chbosky1I really enjoyed reading the book I liked the way it was written pretty much Charlies letters are as intimate as a diary as he shares his day-to-day thoughts and feelings You can somehow really get to know the narrator - Charlie - and you feel like he is writing all these letters to you That is very interesting Yet there are somewhat unrealistic tones which I noticed some time after reading the book because my first impression was how incredibly realistic it was Charlie is only portrayed as the nice innocent teenager He does some things wrong but in the end is near perfect Even though he is screwed up your compassion for Charlie is overwhelming and you seem to forget that the book does not seem that real Besides in my opinion some of the letters are too bookish However I still think the book is insightful true and pretty sad 2The language was colloquial and very easy to understand3There are lots of impressing parts but the one I liked most is when Charlie is telling a poem at a Christmas party to all his friends I loved the poem because it is that sad but however true I think It is about growing up and how things change when you are not anymore the lovely little child but have become a young adult In my opinion it is written in a very sad nevertheless nice way Later on Charlie finds out the poem was written by a boy just before he killed himself He feels really sad about this 4The perks of being a wallflower is the story of what it is like to grow up in high school Charlie a 15-year-old freshman is writing letters who cover his first year in high school to an unknown person Charlie encounters the same struggles that many kids have to face in high
