I have just read Stephen Chbosky – The Perks of being a Wallflower upon recommendation by Michelle, and I did find it pretty interesting!
It tells of a special boy going through his freshmen year, and there are certain things about him that seems to resonate with me. I really thought the author managed to put some perspectives/feelings into words really well, because for some parts I could feel what Charlie was going through.
Throughout the book, there was this talk about the feeling of being infinite. I was driving into the KPE tunnel and I think that’s the closest we can do to replicating that scene in Singapore.
Anyhow, it’s a pretty good book and I advise everyone to read the book first, BEFORE going to catch the movie that is coming out soon. (with Emma Watson)
Here’s the song that was mentioned several times in the book as well, in case you’re curious to find out how to be infinite.
that’s why on the back of a brown paper bag
he tried another poem
and he called it “Absolutely Nothing”
because that’s what it was really all about
and he gave himself an A
and a slash on each damned wrist
and he hung it on the bathroom door
because this time he didnt think
he could reach the kitchen
