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.… (meer)

Beautiful. Heartbreaking. Read it. ( )

This book is only just about every top list of science fiction I've come across, and with good reason. Charlie journey thoughout the book is presented in a memorable way that sticks with you for how personal it is by making this story Charlies journal. ( )
  adamfortuna | May 28, 2021 |
This book is a science fiction. In the emotional front this book or piece of literature is spot on. Whether be it a 68IQ Charlie or a stumbling awkward Charlie or the Charlie consumed by the fire of genius , I connected with him through out . It makes me wonder if everyone did the same , if everyone felt what a 185 IQ Charlie Gordon felt, was the writer so skilled as to pull off this stunt of convincing 100s of people that this is what a 185 IQ person feels and this feeling was nothing strange or deviant from that of a normal IQ person.

The science part was not exactly convincing. I felt the writer had his own agenda to prove in this book and it seemed obvious in a lot of places. I do not dig the keep god's creation as it is part so much , so this skepticism is obvious from my side. The science part was not devoid of the imprints of that era and I personally would feel it failed the test of time .

The plot was very good. The feelings were beautifully shown and we had a lot of insights through out the book. I would recommend it to everyone as it very convincingly is able to emote the feelings through a wide spectrum. However the validity of these emotions will always be in question and should not be generalized. Read this with a pinch of salt and take it as fiction. ( )

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. ( )

[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. Plato, The Republic
