I loved the book. I hadn't heard about it until i caught a flight from London to Houston and bought it then. It's beautifully observed, warm and sensitive, and also encouraging to all kinds of young people who may be going through any number of problems. It's really positive, and gives reasons and understanding for mental illness; a brilliant book that should NEVER suffer from being banned. Congratulations Stephen, on such a simple and perfectly produced piece of work. I'll look forward to reading much more .

this is one of the best books i have ever read in my life...to me it is very life changing for people who have read this book...i think the eight graders whom have read this book it will teach them not to be scared of high school and to have fun and just be yourself..stephen, you are a good writer.

I'm read the perks of being a wallflower and i'm getting close the end. I really don't want it to end. I think i will have to re-read this book because its so good. It really changes the way you think. My whole view on things has changed. I really wish charlie were real and sometimes i forget that he's not. I can relate so much with this book and i can't really even find the words to describe this book. its just the best book i've ever read! i hope stephen chbosky keeps writing more books, he's definately got some talent and skills!

the part where charlie wakes up in the hospital, he doesnt quite tell why he was there and its been racking my nerves. does any one have an answer on why he was there? this is a great book also i must say, i think i could say it changed my life in a way. but if any one could give me an answer i would love you forever. thanks.

One day, I saw my frined reading. The cover looked real interesting. Just because it was so.. Original. Yeah, Original. I asked her what it was and she said it was the perks of being a wallflower. So, I read a few lines and... I liked it. So, I couldn't resist it, I had to buy my own copy. I read it more than 3 times. It's almost liek a bible.. in a way. I go back to a part that some how is related to to the emotion I am in. It's a book with so much thought you cannot describe the word "unique".
It's real deep, understanding and Understandable. If you know what I mean? Anyway, Great job.
Oh! By the way..I now.. LOVE The Smiths :)

After I read this book the first time, I realized that I am exactly like the character Charlie. I had a lot of stuff that I've kept inside for my whole life that I didn't know bothered me... but I guess they did. This book made all all those feelings inside me come out one night and I started crying and hyperventilating and I couldn't stop for a while. It kind of scared me but I guess I'm glad that it happened because I've learned a lot about myself after reading the book.

Perks is one of the best books I have ever read (just finished my 42 read). It is my "Catcher in the Rye".

Lately I've been introduced to the greatest books ever written by Albert Camus, John Paul Sartre, and Kafka. When i read the perks of being a wallflower.. it was like nothing else. I've thought of becoming a writer.. and Chbosky's book has made me pursue that dream all the more. It is one of the greatest books. Thank you Stephen Chbosky.
