Book Blog: The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
Ah, the cruelties of life.
The movie cover is actually better than the original cover. I just don't get the latter one. It's butt ugly.
Sometimes I forget that this book took place in 1991. I was surprised that Charlie (our lovely narrator) wasnt as worldly as the rest of us. And then I remembered that Google wasn't invented yet.
Charlie is far from a roll model. He hangs our with seniors when he's only a freshmen (but since he get held back a grade, he's technically a sophmore) and makes a lot of bad decisions. I was cringing throughout the book.
But I guess that just goes to show that I haven't read that many books that show the reality of high school students. It was really eye-opening to think that some people actually live like this.
I'm sorry about this really short review, but I don't really have anything to say. I'm a bit speechless, y'know? I might edit this after I've watched the movie, but for right now...
