Books: Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes

Flowers For AlgernonFlowers For Algernon by Daniel Keyes
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a disturbing novel about a man with a low IQ becoming a human test subject for an experimental surgery that turns him into a genius. Does this make Charlie Gordon happier? Written as a series of diary entries by Charlie, with grammar and clarity of thought improving in each entry, the reader is given heartbreaking insight into the treatment of the mentally disabled. Now I need to read something that will cheer me up.
