Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
Flowers for Algernon

yogert9000, June 29, 2007

Flowers For Algernon is without a doubt the most emotional book I've read in a long time. It deals with a man who is mentally retarded but then is suddenly given the opportunity to be normal for a change. We get to wittness him changing and not always for the better. Charlie is warm-hearted and we realize that he was smart all along. It's touching and is one of those books that really makes you think about life. In my opinion, this is a novel that should be read by simply everyone.
