When brain surgery makes a mouse into a genius, dull-witted Charlie Gordon wonders if it might also work for him. With more than five million copies sold, Flowers for Algernon is the beloved, classic story of a mentally disabled man whose experimental quest for intelligence mirrors that of Algernon, an extraordinary lab mouse. In poignant diary entries, Charlie tells how a brain operation increases his IQ and changes his life. As the experimental procedure takes effect, Charlie's intelligence expands until it surpasses that of the doctors who engineered his metamorphosis. The experiment seems to be a scientific breakthrough of paramount importance, until Algernon begins his sudden, unexpected deterioration. Will the same happen to Charlie? An American classic that inspired the award-winning movie Charly.… (més)

Charley, a mentally handicapped young man is given an experimental surgery to improve his intelligence by a recommendation of his teacher. At the same time a mouse, Algernon is given the same surgery. To gage his mental ability, he “races” the mouse in a maze. Before his operation the mouse almost always wins. After the surgery Charley becomes a genius. He realizes how he was taunted and made fun of by other people before his surgery. Charley and his teacher become more involved. After a while, Algernon goes back to the way he was originally and Charley realizes it will happen to him too. This book is what I would classify as a modern classic. This story has been made into a movie twice. ( )

"How strange it is that people of honest feelings and sensibility, who would not take advantage of a man born without arms or legs or eyes—how such people think nothing of abusing a man born with low intelligence."
So for this one, I went in entirely blind- In fact, I only read this book because it's mentioned in [b: Everything, Everything|18692431|Everything, Everything|Nicola Yoon|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1450515891l/18692431._SY75_.jpg|26540216]. Funny that I trusted the recommendation without even reading a synopses, because I think I only gave that book 3 stars... But I think what pulled me in was that two characters in the book reference [b: Flowers for Algernon|36576608|Flowers for Algernon|Daniel Keyes|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1510416245l/36576608._SY75_.jpg|3337594], and both of them claim that it made them cry.

Unfortunately, it did not make me physically cry lol. But it was deeply emotional on so many levels. Charlie is tragically human and we get a window into this like never before as his own way of thinking and perspective changes along the road.

I loved this book. ( )

It’s been so long since I first read this I was probably remembering the movie version, Charly, than the book. I’d forgotten how nuanced and poignant this is, how Charlie’s wish to be like other people – so they would like him – almost became a curse. How his happiness was traded off for intelligence as he grew more aware of how cruel people can be, including himself. I was glad to this has aged well; there’s nothing in it that portrays Charlie’s disability in a way that’s hurtful or dismissive. In fact, Charlie becomes an advocate for himself and others by contending he was still a person before he had the operation that made him smart. Truly a classic. ( )

[Keyes] has taken the obvious, treated it in a most obvious fashion, and succeeded in creating a tale that is suspenseful and touching - all in modest degree, but it is enough.

Anyone who has common sense will remember that the bewilderments of the eyes are of two kinds, and arise from two causes, either from coming out of the light or from going into the light, which is true of the mind's eye, quite as much as of the bodily eye; and he who remembers this when he sees anyone whose vision is perplexed and weak, will not be to (sic) ready to laugh; he will first ask whether that soul of man has come out of the brighter life, and is unable to see because unaccustomed to the dark, or having turned from drakness to the day is dazzled by excess of light. And he will count the one happy in his condition and state of being, and he will pity the other; or, if he have a mind to laugh at the soul which comes from below into the light, there will be more reason in this than in the laugh which greets him who returns from above out of the light into the den.
