A Why have I never read this before?

Charlie becomes totally committed to his work, to the point of obsession. Even though Charlie’s intelligence grows to beyond that of a normal human, he is emotionally still very much a child and has to learn the things other people learned long ago.

His miraculous experience has given him a new perspective on life.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. It’s well written, and does a good job placing you into Charlie’s head as he goes up and down through this experiment.

The book is quite well known, got made into kwiqty movie, and has even ended up on school reading lists. Maybe it is a failure of examiners. Charlie is given the procedure, and he starts getting smarter.

Or maybe she just had a thing for Cliff Robertson. That said, the author and the story are to me, simply ,wiaty to tell a perspective, and then conversation and education help navigate that middle line of how to move forward.
