The Perks of Being a Wallflower Quick Review

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Wow. Just finish reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Really enjoyed it. Brings me back to my high school days and all the crazy stuff that goes on in a teenager's mind.
It's a coming of age story about a teenage boy transitioning into high school life. The story consist of series of letters that Charlie writes to a random person and I thought this format was quite entertaining. Charlie is just a pen name he use and all the people in the story he change their names too. He talks about life, love, and lost. We get read about his family and how that environment molds him into the person he is. All in all, Charlie is a good kid who's just a wallflower. We also get to read about the obstacles he had to overcome and how he befriends Patrick and Sam, two seniors that became his greatest friends. These two are wonderful characters. The story was touching at times and it's sad at times and it felt real. Overall, it was a solid read and it makes me feel infinite.

Currently reading: (here's some of the many. I jump around between different books depending on what I feel like reading)

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
