 A great unique read

| | See all Diiddy's reviews (1)

This is a must read. A book written from an extremely innocent point of view and an insight into the life of a slightly awkward and interesting boy. It is a beautiful book that should be part of everyones collection. Male or female, if you have a sensitive side then this is for you. One of the best books I have had the pleasure of reading and will continue to do so for years. This is the forth copy of the book I have bought as I keep giving away my copy to people I know will love it.

I would definately recommend this book to anyone, i wasn't really into reading when i read this, but i struggled to put it down, i thoroughly enjoyed it and suggest that if you're thinking about reading it then you should. Brilliant!

 I love Charlie!

I don't know if i might be a little bit too old for Charlie but he's a nice human being and i wish everyone was humankind! I haven't read the whole book yet but i pick up the book before i go to work, and before i go to sleep, those are the only times i can read it during the week and each time i read a letter, i think what a nice boy. I love his unconventional look on life and how he thinks women should be treated. He is a very innocent boy even when he's dabbling in drugs and not being honest to Mary Elizabeth! His relationship with her made me laugh especially when he chooses the "right time". I love his relationship with people, not just his family but with his friends. His friends seem nice but they dabble in drugs. You can be nice and take drugs too, that is where people go wrong. I felt sorry for him after he dabbled with LSD. I haven't felt this way about a main character since Holden in Catcher in the Rye, and I CAN'T BELIEVE how many times he read that book! He is clever beyond his years yet socially awkward which makes him lovely and endearing and i just want to meet loads of people like him! I dont know what im going to read after i've read this book, probably read it again, or read Catcher in the Rye or just read the books he name drops and listen to the music he makes a mix tape of! I wonder what the film will be like!
