Flowers for Algernon

Title: Flowers for Algernon
Author: Daniel Keyes
Call Number: PS3561.E769 F5 1987
Location: 2nd Floor Arts and Humanities
Rating: Highly Recommended
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.
