The Perks of Being a Wallflower in bullets:
- The perks of sitting on the side lines and just watch people, wondering what is going on their life. Participate less, observe more. After I read this, I decided that I will participate more, and observe more.
- After years of reading, I finally found the book that I think, was similar to my life in general. And I have to say that this book was really written for all of us, cause theme-wise, I think we can all relate to it, in many different ways that we can think of.
- Reading this book was like breathing water, in a nurturing way, of course. This book will slap all life’s truth on the reader’s face.
- We can all find a little of ourselves on the protagonists personality, it’s like finding your long lost twin, not exactly your twin, but at least, you will be aware that you are not alone in this world, with your unexpressed thoughts, even if we think we are.
- This book will make you look at your own life and ponder at your past, just like what Charlie did. That in one way or another, everything that you’re doing and what you’re not doing right now are controlled by some significant past events that we couldn’t wouldn’t let go.
- You’ll learn to let go, ‘participate’, enjoy the life you have and you will love your family more page by page.
- I think, Charlie’s letters are firsthand glimpse to the usual life of a boy on his teenage years. Your first kiss, your first set of friends, your first dance, your first snuff and all the other firsts that makes the Teenage phase the most critical stage of someone’s social development.
- Although there are some classics that discusses the same theme, I can say that this book will be treasured by this generation because of its simple yet outstanding delivery of Teenage Facts, from sex down to drugs.
- Read and be changed.
