Hey guys! I’ve previously mentioned that I’ve got a lot of books to read before I buy more. Some are gifted to me and others I have bought myself. I think this book was gifted to me, but at this point I don’t really remember.
There are many cover-versions of this book; the orange, which I have, blue and with the movie-cover. Yes, this book has been made into a movie. I actually watched the movie twice before I got this book. I liked the movie, but I got to love and understand the story far more by reading it!
This book is written as letters from our main character, Charlie. He writes like anyone would do in a diary, and reports about his first year in high school. The more you read, the more you start to understand Charlie’s situation, without giving too much away.
Without spoiling the book, I can tell you that this book has some amazing book/music references, memorable quotes and the ending got me almost in tears.
This book has to be one of my favorites, and as it says it’s a modern classic. I’m glad that I own this book instead of just borrowing it from the library.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone! It is super easy to read, and I finished the book within 2 days – I had a hard time putting the book down 🙂
