The Perks of Being a Wallflower

(29)

A modern cult classic, a major motion picture and a timeless bestseller, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a deeply affecting coming-of-age story. 

Charlie is not the biggest geek in high school, but he's by no means popular.

Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it,
Charlie is attempting to navigate through the uncharted territory of
high school. The world of first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends. The world of sex, drugs, and music - when all one requires to feel infinite is that perfect song on that perfect drive. Standing on the fringes of life
Charlie has a unique perspective of the world around him, but there comes a time to stop being a
wallflower and see what it looks like from the dance floor.

This haunting novel about the dilemma of
passivity vs. passion has become a modern classic. Charlie's letters are singular and unique, hilarious and devastating and through Charlie,
Stephen Chbosky has created a deeply affecting story that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller coaster days known as growing up.

'Chobsky captures adolescent angst, confusion and joy... Compelling.' Booklist
'This wistful, sensitive novel perfectly captures the uncertainty and excitement of adolescence, and has become a deserving modern classic.' Scottish Book Trust
'A coming-of-age tale in the tradition of THE CATCHER IN THE RYE and A SEPARATE PEACE... [Chbosky's] poignant reflections on life, love and friendship are often inspirational and always beautifully written.' USA Today

A young man tries to come to grips with the death of his best friend and his own past via some frankly touching efforts to "participate" more in life.

THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Großostheim am 29.09.2017
Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

I love this book so much! It's written in a very nice and easy-readable way. If English is not your first language, you will still not have any problems reading it (at least it was totally okay for me and I'm in the 10th grade). 100% worth buying!

Was für ein tolles Buch. Ich konnte es nicht weglegen. So schön emotional und wunderschön geschrieben. Ich kann es jedem empfehlen. Der Film ist übrigens auch ganz nett :)

A coming-of-age story that's already kind of a modern classic. Timeless and yet a perfect reflection of our youth.
