The perks of being a wallflower (some thoughts about it)
Aug. 31 - I just finished reading the book (technically it's an e-book). Every time I finished reading something, I really dwell with it for quite some time unless I'll read a new book or found some other things.
It's far different from "Twilight"..very far away from it. In my opinion, I think it's better than "50 Shades of Grey" (not offending the readers or people who like 50 shades). Oh, I so love Charlie! (with some exaggeration, ^-^)His character is different. People may really think he's weird. I did. He's so innocent and naive. He tried to make everyone happy and comfortable without thinking his own self first. I'm not making him to look good. He's not normal. I think I already said that. As I was reading the book, I found out that I am also weird. (Not sure if it's in a good or bad way though.) I think many can relate with Charlie. I think it's not the teenagers can but also in all ages. I want to share this book to all the wallflowers, who felt they are wallflowers, maybe wallflowers before and until now. It gives me the feeling that I am also Charlie in some times. I think about things. I wonder a lot. I always think about the future and what will be the outcome. I think I am not being analytically minded or what. I guess like what Bill said that sometimes we use our thoughts or we think about things for us not to "participate".
It's really good to read books with sense if you know what I mean. The best part of it is someone also read the book when I was reading it too. I'm glad, I have someone to share the inputs, confusions, interesting parts of it. The book is about a teenager growing up mixed with some drama, family issues, identity crisis, curiosity on things and people around him. I like the way how the writer insert some flashbacks and how he describe some situations in the past and some sensitive issues. There are so many things I want to write about but I guess, you should try to read it.
By the way I am excited for the upcoming movie, try watch the trailer here..
