Review: The Perks of Being a Wallflower
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What measure can we use to compare two people's suffering? Is one worse than the other? Does the fact that one person has a harder time of it mean that someone else's suffering is invalid?
I read a number of the reviews here on Goodreads before I finally decided to read The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and it seems like people are split fairly well down the middle on whether or not they like this novel.
The novel was weird to me, if only because it's not the kind of novel that I usually read. When my mother asked me whether or not I liked it, I told her it's fantastic.
