Journal Entry 1 by cinnamon-quill from New York City, New York USA on Monday, April 04, 2011
This is a brilliant novel. I first discovered it through blind-dating of sorts. Our school library had a Valentine's Day event called 'Go to bed with a book.' Kinky, right? The books were all wrapped up in brown paper with only the ISBNs on the outside. This was the only book that I picked up. I fell in love with it (although not with the shocking dark pink cover of that particular edition) and rated it five stars when I was done.

This is one of my favourite excerpts from the book. It's a bonus that it's an entry written on my birthday!

"I'm not close to him." He looked at me defiantly. "But he's put his whole life into this. He's no Freud or Jung or Pavlov or Watson, but he's doing something important and I respect his dedication - maybe even more because he's just an ordinary man trying to do a great man's work, while the great men are all busy making bombs."

If you find this book, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Please read it and share your thoughts here. Then, pass it on to others so that it can be experienced far and wide. ♥

Quite an amazing story (actually, what's really amazing is that I haven't stumbled across it before now - I should have read this years ago!). I loved the way Charlie's voice is captured across the changes in his intellect.

Thanks cinnamon-quill for introducing me to a new classic!
