I'll probably get stoned for saying this...but i didn't like the book, for 3 reasons
1. they used the word "sad" way to much....there are a billion of synonymous for sad and it bothered me when he said, "that made me feel sad"
2. Incidentally- overused
3. the boy was a pussy and cried all the time but turned into some great hero when it came to fighting.

Favorite Book By Far
I read it in 2 days, and i was kind of pissed off i finished it because it was over
and now i compare it to other books, and none seem even mediocre in comparison.
read this book

I know this will like probably never happen, but if The Perks of Being a Wallflower was made into a movie, who would you want to see play the parts?
I was thinking River Phoniex for Charlie (I know hes dead), Natalie Portman for Sam, and I couldnt think of anyone for Patrick. On MTV's Road Rules a couple of season's ago there was a guy named Patrick. While I was reading I pictured him.

This book is by far my favorite book I have ever read. A teacher reccomended we not read it, because it is not to our age level. We all know what everything means were not stupid. We took it off our teachers desk when she wasnt there and we wrote down the title & author. It's the best book i've ever read. I cried at the end. My favorite book ever :]

i think everyone should read this book. it is so wonderful in its own unique way. i love the vibe it gives off and the wonderful morals you can take away from it. it is somewhat humorous & it's also very heavy.An excellent book. hands down. i leant it to my english teacher and she loved it as well.

i found this book to be amazingly good.. just as one review said, it was relatable and had good points of humor.. so in technicallity it must be a good book, but i thought it was more then that.
this book was good in pointing out that life is beautiful. now i look for the moments where i feel infinate.. and know that life is meant to be partaken in and not to be wasted. however, though, i think that sometimes its ok to just sit back and observe life, because how can one truly appreciate the beauty of the world if we're too busy to stop and pay attention.
i love this book and i hope that anyone who is to read it doesn't just read it and pay attention to the story. there is so much more, and i would strongly suggest everyone to read it and appreciate the things you can get from it. i know i have.
