Daniel Keyes È Flowers for Algernon PDF

Flowers for AlgernonThe story of a mentally disabled man whose experimental uest for intelligence mirrors that of Algernon an extraordinary lab mouse In diary entries Charlie tells how a brain operation I am finding it hard to put into words the vast range of emotions I experienced while reading this tale of hope perseverance truth and humanity When it comes to science fiction in general I would hesitate before declaring myself a fan The books I have enjoyed most from this genre tend to be the softer humanity focused stories Like this one I'm a huge fan of science fiction that doesn't seem too far away; something that I could imagine being just around the corner and that's how I felt about Flowers for Algernon This story is about Charlie Gordon who with an I of 68 can only hope to sweep the floors at the bakery Well that is until he is invited to participate in an experiment previously only tested on animals The experiment is an operation that will gradually make him a genius and allow him to become the person he's always longed to be But intelligence comes with a price Charlie learns that the people he's known for years are not what he'd always thought Where he once associated laughter with friendship he soon learns that it is mockery It has been said that intelligence is mostly about having a good memory and Charlie Gordon finds that out the hard way Memories that had been forgotten come flooding back bringing pain with themFlowers for Algernon looks at so many different things mental disabilities human nature intelligence and love It made me feel sad angry frustrated and hopeful It made me shake my head at people's abhorrent behaviour and it made me incredibly thankful for so many things I know how cliche that sounds but it's true Even though Charlie's intelligence grows to beyond that of a normal human he is emotionally still very much a child and has to learn the things other people learned long ago He doesn't understand what is happening when his body becomes sexually responsive to a woman and he often doesn't understand why people say one thing but mean something completely different It's a very sad story and it made me think about so many things The ending just about broke my heartBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube
