Book vs. Movie Reviews by gutsyGumshoe and littleSoy: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Book Review of The Perks of Being a Wallflower by little Soy
The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky is a coming of age story about an introverted freshman named Charlie and how he discovers his identity with the help of his rag tag friends. The novel is splendidly written; the prose is smart, yet not over complicated or forced. The subject matter is very heavy dealing with abuse, drug abuse, and depression. Although it has dark themes, the story is surprisingly relatable; as if Mr. Chbosky wrote it just for you.

The movie was phenomenal. It had a bang-up soundtrack, deep characters, and wow don’t get me started on those facial expressisons. All in all, if you are planning to see this movie because of the book than you will not be disapointed and vice versa. It’s a whole ‘nother point of view seeing the movie and you start to realize specific details you didn’t find earlier. The author, Stephen Chbosky, wrote and directed the entire film and he did a wonderful job doing so. You feel the frustration the main character feels and see what he is thinking, understand what he wants and why he acts the way he does. Just see the movie and feel all those icky sad feels.
