Day 28 – A book you couldn’t put down.

Many of them–I belong to the One More Page club. I read past bedtime!

But a recent one is Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes.

Even though I knew how it was going to end, having heard of this book before I read it… This is an example of a first-person book that really works. You’re reading Charlie’s diary, inside his mind, and it’s heart wrenching and griping. I had to follow the story to the end, see exactly what Charlie  had to say as his last recorded words.

It’s a good thing it’s fairly short, so I went to sleep not too late.

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.
