But Charlie can’t stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a deeply affecting coming-of-age story that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.
I had very high expectations for The Perks of Being A Wallflower. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. I think I had high hopes because Emma Watson was in the movie. I love her. But I didn’t like her character very much in the book (and no. I haven’t seen the movie yet). The story line was sort of slow and just kind of blah. It was work to get through the book. Not like The Good Earth, but it did take me a while. I wasn’t really happy with how the book was laid out because it was mostly a narration. I had a hard time becoming a part of the characters like I usually do.
I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.
