Read in June, 2008

I really enjoyed reading this book! I think it was great the contrast with mental age and emotional age. It was really strange the budding relationship between Charlie and the teacher - being a teacher. It well-written and easy to read. I like that it was mostly story and not a lot of background information - my best type of read! I was a little put off by the thought process that genius Charlie realized that retarded Charlie went through. That was not believable for me. Other than that - a really enjoyable book!!!
