Love this book and highly recommend reading it.
It's the masterpiece of Daniel Keyes. I also read his 'The Minds of Billy Milligan' (the true story of a murderer with multiple personalities), but was disappointed with the writing.
Also disappointing to me was the movie 'Charly' (1968). It's weakness is the faithfulness to the novel 'Flowers for Algernon'. The novel works, because the reader sees the world through the eyes of Charly Gordon. The film is much less touching, because the viewer looks at the character from outside.
A non-native-speaker of English may wish to browse the web for the novel is his/her language. I found...
* Des Fleurs pour Algernon
* Fiori per Algernon
* Flores para Algernon
If someone catches sight of the german translation 'Blumen für Algernon', I'd be thankful for dropping the link as a comment.
Give this book a chance. You won't regret it.

Incredible. One of the best books I've ever read. I highly recommend it to anyone.

maybe strikethrough can be added here as well, e.g. like in the German translations?
or we find a possibility to add a style for such (underline, strikethrough, ...) via a class.
