The Perks of Being a Wallflower explores the life of teenager, through its highs and lows. Charlie is boy at the start of high school as a junior and he is scared and decides to write letters detailing his life from then onwards.
It was quite an adventure to read this book. It has an addicting quality and a cute narrating voice.
I’m somewhat like Charlie in character minus all the things in the book and the total honesty. I’m somewhat that emotional type but I don’t cry like he does. (This only makes us like the character more, because we know he is just like us) Well, writers are all emotional to some level.
The author of the book has a vivid writing style that hooks you to the book from the start. Hell, it takes about 30-50 pages to get hooked to the characters and the story in some books but in this, it takes reading about 10-20 pages and you just can’t decide whether to stop reading it or keep reading it until you are exhausted.
This is how it is, to be a teenager. I loved this book more than I can tell you. It spoke to me. Yeah, I know corny right?
This is a simple story with splendid and unique characters you’ll start to love before you know it. The story has a lot of classic literary and musical references.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a treasure to be beheld. It will take you where you’ve never been before but know exactly what Charlie is going through.
A must read for everyone and mostly teenagers.
I rate it 5/5.
