The Perks of Being a Wall Flower March 24, 2007

I finished The Perks of Being a Wallflower yesterday.  I
really enjoyed it.  I wasn't sure what to expect.  The book had first
been recommended to me by a high schooler at my church and a couple of other
people seconded it as a good read.  But a lot of book club people didn't
care for it, so I went into it with mediocre expectations.  But I loved
it.  I tend to like books that are similarly written – like Catcher in the
Rye and On the
Road.  I think it would be how I would write if I were a writer since my
brain seems to think that way (despite the fact that there is far less alcohol,
drugs, and depression affecting it).  And despite the fact that it is
narrated by a teenager, there are some really beautiful and amazing lines in it
(I would give an example, but Ben is currently reading it).  I was able to
feel for Charlie the entire time.  My high school experience was nothing
like his, but I was still able to relate.  I got very caught up in the
book on the other day.  I came home from class and curled up on the couch with a
blanket and tea (it was storming outside, so it felt cozy).  When I looked
up the next time, it was three hours later, I was 100 pages further, and the
sun was shining.  I had gotten completely lost in the book – it was
wonderful.

In other news, I severely dislike school and I think I'm going to pass/fail transnational law :
