Perks of Being A Wallflower Novel vs. Perks of Being A Wallflower Movie

Hi guys. Sorry that I haven’t been posting lately. It’s just that I was busy with school everything and this was supposed to be up yesterday but this post got deleted and not published. I seriously did not know what happened, so here I am starting this post from scratch again. Anyway, I hope you guys understand and enjoy this review!



*The book review was already posted just look for it at the previous posts.*

Review of the Movie:

The movie I think was fantastic. I mean I’m the person who tries to understand the movie so much┬áthat I totally related to it. :)) I mean at first it may be boring if it wasn’t your type of movie (I must be honest the first time watched it, I totally dozed off.), but if you understand the story, you know it’s deep. So deep. But honestly, I didn’t understand the story the first and second time I watched the movie. I had to re-watch the move 3 – 5 times to fully understand the story. But still the movie was great. ;)

Rating 4 out of 5 ;)


Comparison of the Movie to the Book:

The movie was so different to the book. I mean of course, it left out tons of information in the book. Like there are a lot of scenes that should have been in the movie that was important to the book. Compared to the book, the movie was so jumpy with the scenes. Scenes that were removed that should not have been moved. Ugh It was just so different. The concept was still there but it was so hard to picture out. That’s all I can say before I say anything that might spoil anything. =))

The Perks of Being A Wallflower Book Review!


Summary/ Short Description:
Charlie is a Freshman and while he’s not biggest the geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years, yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it. Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs and the rocky horror picture show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But Charlie can’t stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.

Another book that is totally out of my comfort zone. I must tell you though this book is so real. I mean you know that this can happen to anyone. One person might be actually undergoing this state right now. And that I totally relate to Charlie when you know he was just this person observing everything, give all the opportunity to others and not yourself. I totally know how that feels. However, this book made my brain go in circles that sometimes I had to go back another day (since the book is written in diary/letter form) just to fully understand what was happening. But I love how the book was written, due to the fact that it was unique. But this book just kept me going in circles with all what happened to Charlie. I still liked the book though. I didn’t love it but I liked it. So it was okay for me.
Review: 3.5 out of 5 :)
