i love the way that stephen chbosky writes . the way that he gets into the characters. you can tell that he really loves the characters in Perks of Being a Wallflower. i just hope he never changes his style of writing!`

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is my favorite book ever. I look at Charlie and find myself in him, as i'm sure many others do. I think that he's a very talented and gifted writer and I hopt that he writes more novels. His book changed my view of life.

I'm older then Charlie but when I read this book I remembered what is was like to be his age and how diffiuclt it all is. My olny wish is that it was longer. I think in years to come this book will be required reading for high school students along with catcher in the rye. I know, had read it want I was younger, it would have helped a lot knowing I wasn't alone.

I have never connected with a charector like I did with Charlie. This kind of writing was so real and emotional, without being overly "in-your-face". You felt like you were looking at a real person, through a window into their world. A definite read for anyone in high school, should be required by schools. A life changing work, to be sure.

i dont think ive ever felt so close to a character like i did with Charlie. this book is absolutely amazing.

I love his stuff too. Im an actor. Does anyone know where i can find how to get the rights to make "perks" into a play?

i really love this book, im in the middle of it and i just love it. Charlie reminds me of myself the stuff he does and the way he thinks and i can totally relate to the book. some parts make me cry and some make me laugh. this is one of my favorite books of all time. my other favorite is the coldest winter ever by sister souljah. i suggest you people read it. it is really good.

also i think the author should write more coming of age books, i really like those books cuz im 16 and i just learn alot from different books that i read. Also i want to be a writer to like charlie , well thats about it.

>>By livvy   (Sunday, 26 Jan 2003 03:05)

I love him...u can relate to everything he writes about...i have read the perks of being a wallaflower 27 times...

>>By Kerry   (Sunday, 26 Jan 2003 03:05)

Ive read the book twice already but several years ago. Im reading it again for the third time and now more than ever being able to associate with the characters. The way that Chbosky describes the people and the settings he makes it so easy for nearly anyone to relate them back to their own lives.
I look forward to anything he does in the future.

I am currently working on a screenplay/stageplay for The Perks of Being a Wallflower. While reading this book, I could sense a very theatrical aura to it. Chbosky is known for writing screenplays and I think that it definately showed through his writing. I am in the process of contacting Stephen about this matter and the possibility of it being a play and/or movie. I have already spoken to his agent and will be meeting with him soon. She said he is very interested in the idea and would like to see the final adaptation. If anyone would like to help me in any way or give ideas on what should(n't) be in this adaptation contact me. or AIM:Thespis2134

>>By FeministDuende   (Sunday, 26 Jan 2003 03:05)

This book was great! I read it in 2 days flat. I really liked how Stephen got into the characters and the diary form of the book. It was really good and I would recomend it to anyone!

>>By Kady   (Sunday, 26 Jan 2003 03:05)

I really love that book because it is funny AND sad.
Furthermore, I think everybody can identify with Charlie in a way.
I have not read another book with such a suprising and shocking ending.
You would not expect it and you will not be able to believe it because there are no real hints to THIS.
Moreover, it I agree that it would be a good book for school.
I love that poem which is CharlieĀ“ s last present for Patrick.
I am really looking forward to a new book by Stephen Chbosky who is a real hero!

I love Stephen Chbosky, Book on perks of being a wallflower because personally i'm one myself and I can related to Charlie and what he been through. When I read the letters,I felt writing letters back to Charlie, because I very much understand what he went through, because i'm went through it. Plus, it will be great if you made this book into a movie, I will be the 1st one in line to buy a ticket and to buy it on Dvd and video when it comes out. That's how good this book is!!!

Stephen Chbosky has one of the most brilliant writing styles to ever be used. On the back of the novel many critics said that he was able to reach some of the extremely high standards set by the books The Catcher In The Rye and A Seperate Peace. They do not even compare! Charlie is my all time favorite character. It was so easy to relate to him! This is "an easy book to read, but a hard book to read well."-Direct quote

SHlT! im in trouble have 2 write a book report bout perks of a wallflower GAY!!!!!!! havent even started

>>By O.o   (Sunday, 26 Jan 2003 03:05)

I love the book "The perks of being a wallflower" its such an insperation. I absoultly love the caracters, espically the way Charlie fell in love with Sam. but my Faviort part in the book is on page 33. when there on the road and they all feel "infinte".
It took me so long to find this book even though i'm only 17 i enjoy getting into Charlie's mind and thinking the way he does!

>>By Chnaga   (Sunday, 26 Jan 2003 03:05)

I just received this book as a Christmas present and i must say, i fell that it has changed me. As I listened to the song "asleep" by the smiths for the first time after reading this book, i felt so much of what charlie felt through this song. i cannot describe the beauty to this book. I will also give this book as a gift, because it truly is a gift.

>>By HollyAnne   (Sunday, 26 Jan 2003 03:05)

well what can i say? this book has touched me in a way that i just can't explain. the fact that i can relate to the main character about molestation makes me feel that it isn't my fault. I know now that other people experience similar trauma makes each day easier.
Thankx Stephen!

Does anyone else knw of any other Chbosky books? If so could you e-mail me at

>>By Bonita   (Sunday, 26 Jan 2003 03:05)

I'm not an extraordinarily avid reader, but I truly could not tear myself from this book. Charlie's confusion is so articulate; he strives to find truth and always be truthful himself, but it is almost futile to do so. How often do teenagers feel this way?!

I read a review of the book at by Larry Fitzmaurice and although I'm not sure, I do not believe he is young enough to comprehend the book. I also do not think he spent his teen years reflecting upon himself or the world as most teens do. Read the review. Find a way to communicate with him how wrong he is.

He says that Charlie is a character that we cannot relate to. How wrong. I felt that I was Charlie; at the end of a letter, I might take a break and reflect on what I had just read, and I felt like I had exited a totaly different world, back into my own. I felt mellow, a little melancholy, and truly inspired. In Chbosky's own words, I felt infinite.

Stephen Chbosky is a great writer his books have inspired me to be the man i am i push allof my friends and even people i meet to read his work
verynice job mr. Chbosky

>>By Spencer   (Wednesday, 12 Feb 2003 17:03)

i loved the perks of being a wallflower. it gave me a totally new perspective on life. im the type of person who cant talk about there problems and charlie helped with that because he learned to stand up for himself and voice his opinion. i loved the way he wrote and how he portrayed the things he was feeling.... i will definitely be reading this book many more times, and recommend it to anyone that wants to read a good book.

When I read "Perks" for the first time I feel a little bit in love with Stephen. And I gave my copy of the book to this guy that I liked very much, and he really loved "Perks" and from the way that he spoke of the book, and the way that he made ref to it at just the right moments...I fell in love with him. I agree with everyone that said that it was amazing, and life changing. Thats the point you know, of being a great writer, creating something so beautiful it moves people and changed thier lives, even if its in the smallest way.

I love this book very much. It was just so...REALISTIC. Stephen Chbosky is such a talented writer, especially with a variety of different characters. It was the fastest that I've ever read a book (4 days). If it wasn't broken down into parts I don't think I'd ever have been able to put it down without finishing. I wish it never ended. I'd be thrilled to read a continuation of it by Chbosky if he ever wishes to do so. What a great idea. Letters are amusing to read and it was nothing but letters. It made me feel that he was writing to me. That's maybe why it came across to me as being so incredibly powerful.

This is one of the best books I have ever read in my life. I have felt extremely fortunate that I happened to pick up this book. Reading this book is just heavenly , and gives me enoumous positive energy. I admire Charlie's sincere attitude toward his friends, family, and life. He never gets cynical, no matter what happends. I want to thank Stephen Chbosky for writing this book and giving us an opportunity to meet these wonderful characters.

I've just read the perks of being a wallflowe, and i thought it was amazing! It's incredable how an older person can write something that younger people can connect with so well. I was so into the book i read in all in about 4 hours! I really love his work and i hope to enjoy more books by stephen chbosky!

>>By Marsi   (Tuesday, 4 Mar 2003 02:47)

I think that this book is a great book and i would recomend it to everyone. Stephen Chbosky has created a master peice by this book, I couldnt put the book down. I really look forward to reading more of Stephens books.
