I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

Flowers for Algernon

Cover of Flowers for Algernon.

I liked Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes โ€“ even though the ending in itself felt predictable, it was very clear that the journey to that ending was the core of the book. It’s not an easy question: How much does intelligence determine who we are, and what would happen if our intelligence were to rapidly in- or decrease? While I liked the concept of the book, I can’t say that I enjoyed it though โ€ฆ it felt too stressfull with a hint of the kafkaesque for that.
