Flowers For Algernon – Daniel Keyes

29 Jan

Challenges – BCF February Reading Circle
Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge

Synopsis – Charlie Gordon, IQ 68, is a floor sweeper, and the gentle butt of everyone’s jokes, until an experiment in the enhancement of human intelligence turns him into a genius. But then Algernon, the mouse whose triumphal experimental tranformation preceded his, fades and dies, and Charlie has to face the possibility that his salvation was only temporary.

My thoughts – I dont want to go into too much detail until the february reading circle but i really enjoyed this book. It actually made me cry at the end! i thought it was a fantastic read and would highly recommend it. More thoughts to come in the february reading circle 😀

Rating – 4/5
