The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky

I read this in one sitting, I simply could not put the book down it was so lovely to read a book where there wasn't any vindictive characters or an 'Evil person' that had it in for the main character. I never believed that one book could address so many events at once and not have it overwhelm the main plot line and just helped develop the characters. I really loved the format of the book with charlie sending letters to someone who is anonymous which helped me to connect to Charlie.


I felt that even at my age I could relate to Charlie at certain aspects with his life, seeing Charlie develop from being alone and then finding people who let him in and helped Charlie become his own person in the end and Charlie was able to develop as a person. This book was a nice read because nothing really dark happens and it allowed me to always be smiling whist I was reading which was a nice change to the mix of emotions I normally get when I am reading.


I would recommend this book to anyone that wants a quick read and anyone that loves reading a book that does address a lot of different subjects.


Thanks for Reading this short review.
