Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Perks of Being a Wallflower (Taschenbuch)
The Perks of Being a Wallflower was a book I put off reading for a very long time. I thought I would not be interested in the plot or (even worse) hate it altogether. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. The book is a sort of diary outlet for the lead character "Charlie" (That could be his real name, and it could not). Charlie writes to his "friend" quite often as his life becomes increasingly complicated. He looks at life with a refined wisdom and a long line of new feelings every day, he has an undeniable innocence and a good character development.
The book is tragic in a way. I won't spoil the ending for those who haven't read it, but it is heartbreaking to realize why his character is the way it is. On the way to all that sadness, however, are some wonderful times with his friends Patrick and Sam and a lot of the usual self-discovery themes. The book tends to revolve upon Charlie's school reading assignments, and there are often veiled references to characters and plots from the stories mentioned.
The perspective on life is fresh and light, with very little unnecassry information to drag down the plot. It's a book very similar to The Princess Diaries or "Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging," yet keeps a very clear and refreshing plot. This is a book every teen would enjoy.
