The only critique that I could find for the book was the writing. Although beautifully written, for me it captured the mentality of a much younger student and definitely not an extremely well-read high school student. But putting that aside, Charlie’s character was so well developed and made so three dimensional that I felt like I could relate to Charlie. Being a high school student myself, the journey that Charlie underwent was one that I felt like I could relate to personally. It captured real life and didn’t leave anything out because it was uncomfortable or inappropriate. Charlie’s thoughts were so unfiltered which may have made others uncomfortable but that was what made it so true.
I highly recommend everyone to read this book no matter your age or background because it’s truly so universal for every single person. I have watched the trailer and read the first couple of pages before but never found myself interested in picking up either the film or book. But having read this (before watching the movie!) I now want to delve deeper into Charlie’s thoughts and it makes me reflect more on my own thoughts and mental health. It makes me want to stay true to who I am exactly like how Charlie is and I’m grateful to Chbosky for writing about the authentic experiences.
