"We accept the love we think we deserve."
In action. Signing books and
posters for us fans!
Hubs and I had the chance to attend a screening of the movie version of The Perks of Being a Wallflower with the author of the book/screenwriter and director Stephen Chbosky. The movie is AMAZING! I think it is awesome that Chbosky was able to play such a major role in the book to movie adaptation. That rarely happens but he did it wonderfully. I think the movie was a little lighter than the book. Obviously some scenes couldn't be in the movie because of time and flow constraints but I think all the important parts were included. This is just a really good coming of age movie (and book) and I totally recommend them both!
“And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.”
Stephen answering fan questions after the movie.
Stephen did say that he working on another book, YaY!!
“He's a wallflower. You see things.
You keep quiet about them. And you understand."
If you a person who has ever experienced the feeling of loneliness and not fitting in please read the book or at least see the movie! I give this book (and movie) 5 out of 5 stars. I totally recommend it.
Other bloggers I like that encouraged me to read this book:
