Book Review: Wow--what an
emotional roller coaster of a book! I find myself frequently revisiting
the thought provoking and gut wrenching story of Charlie Gordon, a man with an
IQ of 68 whose intelligence skyrockets following a controversial experimental
procedure. What follows is a beautiful and heart breaking exploration of
humanity and the jumbled path of self-discovery.
