the character of Charlie,
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Perks of Being a Wallflower (Taschenbuch)
It's interesting to me (and reading these other reviews only confirms this) that "Perks" is one of those books that doesn't really have an age demographic. Is it supposed to be read by 13 year olds or college freshmen or 40 year olds or what? So I asked myself "What makes that possible?" And in my mind, it appeals to such a great age range because of the character. Charlie is so fascinating, and so strangely real...after I read the book, I felt like I actually knew this person, like I might bump into him at a party. Reminds me of being in the eighth grade and reading "The Diary of Anne Frank", and feeling like Anne was my best friend in the world... no one could understand me like Anne could. What other characters give you that feeling, that feeling that you've met them before, they'e so real? Rabbit Angstrom, Holden Caulfield of course, call me sick but I personally feel that way about Humbert Humbert...I don't know. Does anyone get what I mean? I'd be curious to see if others agree or disagree: that Charlie is one of the most beautiful, fully realized, fully human characters to hit a bookstore in...I don't know; you all tell me.
