Flowers for Algernon is the first book that I have read for a book club, and what a great book to start this tradition with. As this is a book of fiction, which I usually don’t read, I found this book to be really resonating with me in multiple levels and I am impressed by the author’s ability to portray the transition so vividly. Hats off to the narrator for making the changes in character even more pronounced! In the end, this books shows once more than being all-rounded and balanced is the thing that will get you along the furthest. Initially, I got to know about the book through the episode ‘Flowers for Charlie’, from the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia TV-show, which is one of my favourites.
The audiobook version was better I believe, but you can’t go wrong with either of the two.
