Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes

Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes

After hearing about this book for so long, I was finally able to read it. At the beginning it seems like a very interesting book about what it is like to have a mental disability, but as the book progresses, that is not all it’s about. This book is about forgiveness, figuring out who you are and accepting that, limits and all. After finishing it, I realized that it taught me even more then everything listed before. It had taught me how to accept myself, but also how I do not have to accept what I do not like about myself. This book showed me that I can be aware of what I do not like and that I can actively work to change that. This is a really great book that I think everybody should read. It should definitely be middle school and up, because it also teaches about love and how sex affects that. It is not graphic in the least bit, but it is definitely mentioned. I gave this five stars because it was always interesting and it taught me a lot. This book is a thinker, it makes the reader think a lot about themselves and about other people who you would normally judge harshly.
