The perks of being a wallflower - Stephen Chbosky


This is one of those classic books that you assume everyone has read, but then it turns out they haven't, so I haven't really been able to speak to anyone about it.

And I need to. Because I really didn't get it.

The story follows a teenage boy who has a very emotional outlook on the world - it follows him navigating teenage life, and everything that comes with it - girls, drugs, drink, school...

I read it fairly quickly, as it's not particularly long or complicated. It just...doesn't seem like much happens and was a bit too simplistic for me. Like, the way it is written doesn't flow as a book should (in my opinion!)

I'm for sure missing the bigger picture/deeper meaning and would recommend you read it yourself to see what you get out of it, but it just doesn't do it for me.

The DVD is only a couple of quid on Amazon at the moment, so I might get it just to see if the story appeals more to me in film version.

Have you read it? What did you think?
