It is official, I have read more books this year than last year! I have to say I had my doubts but I did it. Flowers for Algernon is the 16th book read this year.
I have been told to read this book for a while, so I finally did. It was good and depressing. You know me I always enjoy the depressing books. This book made me think about how I treat other people and how people relate to one another.
It is about a 32 year old man with an IQ of 70 that was part of an experiment where he had brain surgery that tripled his IQ. During this whole process he related more to a mouse named Algernon that had the same surgery, than anyone.
I hear there is a movie made about this book, so I am going to check it out. I also hear there is a rumor Will Smith is thinking about doing a remake of the movie.
