Standing on the fringes of lifeoffers a of Being PDF #205 uniue perspective But there comes a time to seewhat it looks like from the dance floorThis haunting novel about the dilemma of passivity vs passion marks the stunning debut of a provocative new voice in contemporary fiction The Perks of Being A WALLFLOWERThis is the story of what it's like to grow up in high school The Perk If like me you lurk on freuent tumblr you will have realised that there is only so far you can scroll before you hit something like this Stephen Chbosky’s epistolary novel has something of a cult following and the uotes that litter the internet seem almost anthemic given the passion with which they are re blogged uoted slapped across artfully light leaked photographs and “liked” A generation appears to have adopted The Perks of Being a Wallflower and by extension it’s narrator Charlie as a sort of symbol of the experience of adolescence Freuently criticised and challenged Perks seems to offer its devoted fans a sense of connection of understanding of honesty about things left unspoken or whispered behind hands and closed doors This book speaks to the sense of alienation that many teens experience the uestions of who they are and where they belong Charlie has become a response to – and I mean no disrespect by this as I wasam a voice in this – a collective plaintive cry of “ nobody understands me”It also seems to have become an unofficial badge of hipsterism and therein lies the reason for my cautious view spoilerokay biased hide spoiler

Stephen Chbosky ô The Perks of Being a Wallflower Ebook

The Perks of Being a WallflowerS EpubMore intimate than a diary Charlie's letters are singular and uniue hilarious and devastating We may not know where he lives We may not know to whom he is writing All we know is the world he shares Caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it puts him on a strange course through uncharted territory The world of first Perks of Being PDFEPUB #230 dates and Clueless I am clueless The popularity of this book baffles me even than the popularity of The Fault in Our Stars Maybe I really am just a coldhearted person with no feelingsAmazingly I actually managed to start The Perks of Being a Wallflower knowing absolutely nothing about it I've avoided all the reviews and hype over the years I've purposely put off seeing the movie because I wanted to check out the book first I knew nothing except that so many people LOVE this book I was a bit sceptical from the very first page when 15 year old Charlie's narrative opened with short choppy fragmented sentences I don't think that there is a favorite kid in our family There are three of us and I am the youngest My brother is the oldest He is a very good football player and likes his car My sister is very pretty and mean to boys and she is in the middle But I perked up at the idea of reading a book by a narrator with obvious learning difficulties andor autism One of my favourite parts of reading is getting to see the world through the eyes of someone whose perspective I might not have fully considered before So I was willing to overlook the slightly annoying use of immature language and structure because I realised it was needed to get inside the narrator's head Imagine my surprise and confusion when I discovered that not only does Charlie not have any learning difficulties but he is actually considered intelligent beyond his years is apparently extremely talented and somehow manages to get straight A grades What And also howIt's like I'm missing something I must be right Because to me this seems like nothing than the usual melodramatic issue book desperately trying to manipulate my emotions with the subtlety of a million flying bricks There's suicide sexual abuse domestic abuse and homosexuality crammed into the first few chapters Is that not enough angst for you Well wait a few chapters and we get drugs incest fights first sexual experiences and masturbation told through the eyes of a guy who sounds about eight but is actually a teenagerI didn't feel sad or moved or anything so like I said maybe this is a character flaw on my part But I'm tired of reading books where I can feel the author's little voice screaming between the lines Cry Look people are dying and it is so sad cry Look incest and prejudice and rape cry I felt nothing Except maybe manipulated; yeah I definitely felt manipulated A few people pointed out in the comments that those with autism can actually be very intelligent and I felt the need to mention it here While reading I wondered if Charlie might be autistic because dyslexia is common among those with autism but I don't want to lead anyone to believe that autism denotes a lack of intelligence in many cases the opposite is trueBlog | Leafmarks | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Tumblr
