‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ by Stephen Chbosky

(book review)

I would die for you. But I won’t live for you.”
Stephen Chbosky

The main character, Charlie, at the beginning of the story, was fifteen. Charlie is an ordinary guy, without physical defects, quite developed for his age. Then what’s wrong with him?

However, it is the fact that something is wrong with him; it is clear from the very beginning of the book. The novel is written in the form of letters from Charlie to his non-existent friend. We have already noticed the strangeness, right? Who will write letters to anyone? Only the one who has a ‘headache.’

Charlie has a mental problem somewhere in the depth of his brains. Definitely. What is the reason for such behavior and its strangeness? History will tell us about it. And in the book, it will be much clearer than in the movie.

Let’s end with his strange personality, to which you undoubtedly feel sympathy in the course of the whole action. As I said above, a novel is a letter from Charlie in which he tells a non-existent friend about how he spent a day. The young man, a teenager who had no friends before, meets a strange couple, Patrick and Sam, who are a couple of years older than him. This acquaintance will be significant for Charlie. From this acquaintance, in fact, begins the story in which the reader has to understand both the hero and why he is. Unfortunately, I personally did not understand.

The excellent writing language…Sometimes the purple prose…It was easy to read… There are many deep things, effectively used literary and stylistic devices, and perhaps some truthful things I found for myself in the book. Though, frankly speaking, ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower,’ is still a mystery to me that I can’t seem to solve. I put 8/10 in the book.
