4.5 stars
One of the best young adult books ever. The narration is done through letters and that just helps in understanding the main character more. The transition into high school is a major event for Charlie, our main character, one he dreads(who doesn't haha?). The book handles everything graciously, it gives enough details for visualization and understanding. The letter format gives another angle to the events happened as described by Charlie. The character was good enough for this format to work properly. It doesn't loose it's meaning at all, and it's something that will stay with you long. The characters are nicely fleshed out, the development is enough, maybe a bit less for some characters. The setting was great and the pacing was perfect. There were times when I disliked the main character and how he was written and maybe he cries a bit too much, but the book has become a comfort book to me now and it's perfect to remember everything good and bad and what happens after.

A Catcher in the Rye–like coming-of-age story. I was really pleased that it seemed free of melodrama and major trauma—an ordinary teen's life—but we did get the obligatory wallop near the end. Otherwise, it struck me as an honest book about a perspicacious kid struggling with the (mostly) ordinary issues that kids deal with. ( )

While this is a realistic view of high school freshman's day to day life and his own journey to understand himself, it just did not appeal to me. I was waffling between a 2 and a 3 rating, and went with the lower one because I do not like books written as a series of letters. For me anyway, this is avoiding a major job of a writer: continuity and coherence. I applaud Chbosky for dealing with and discussing a lot of the things that go on in high school. Sometimes I liked Charlie, and other times, I thought he was a weenie. That he had a crush on a senior girl was fine, that she even thought about a freshman was farcical. I also liked the teacher, who encouraged Charlie to read great books and was a real mentor. Glad I read it (finally), but would not recommend it. ( )

This is definitely YA literature - a great read for that age group. ( )

Oh, what a tragic, oversimplified mess this book is! Stephen Chbosky packs a whole lot of heavy material into 213 pages, but the way he handles that material is so irresponsible that I'm actually left worried about his readers. I'm especially concerned for the unsuspecting younger ones who pick it up having seen the cheery, island of misfit toys-style trailer for the movie based on the book, and are confronted with something entirely different and considerably more weighty. Knowing that most YA fiction is read by middle school kids or younger, I can't understand how a YA author can, in good conscience, put the following thought into a 9th grader's head: "She was scared, and it wasn't until she had a sip of whatever we were drinking or a hit off of whatever we were smoking that she would calm down and be the same Sam," and suggest that a good way to feel "infinite" is to stand up in the back of a moving pick-up truck going through a city tunnel. Issues like these are rampant throughout the story (which is, unfortunately, well-crafted and engaging), but the real kicker is the ending, which finally reveals why main character Charlie is so troubled, then glosses over it in a few pages of canned philosophy/psychology. I'm not a fan of trigger warnings, and will resist including a spoiler on that plot point, but really, it was all just way, way too much.

One small positive note: the list of classic books that Charlie's English teacher, Bill, gives him may lead young fans of The Perks of Being a Wallflower to some good reading. It was hard to focus on that aspect because Bill's behavior throughout the book set off so many alarm bells, but his intense interest in Charlie seemed to be innocent and truly well-intentioned in the end. Given the excessive number of traumatic themes that Chbosky had already put into play at that point, I was very relieved that he exercised that small bit of authorial restraint!

This book has been very popular, and I plan to read up on reviews, etc. to learn more about why, but I'm not sure I'm open to being convinced of its merits. ( )

“Charlie, we accept the love we think we deserve.”
“Not everyone has a sob story, Charlie, and even if they do, it’s no excuse.”
And I thought that all those little kids are going to grow up someday. And all those little kids are going to do the things that we do. And they will all kiss someone someday. But for now, sledding is enough. I think it would be great if sledding were always enough, but it isn’t.
Because I guess we all forget sometimes. And I think that everyone is special in their own way. I really do.
The inside jokes weren’t jokes anymore. They had become stories. Nobody brought up the bad names or the bad times. And nobody felt sad as long as we could postpone tomorrow with more nostalgia.
