"A tale that is convincing, suspectful and touching..."
-- The New York Times.

My thoughts
One of the best reads I own! A must-have! It basically revolves around a simpleton (mental retard), Charlie, who volunteered himself as a human lab rat for scientists, and his 'progris riports'. Through the countless experiments he was put through, from one with an IQ of 68, he became, almost overnight, a genius. The book is basically written journal entry style, where Charlie, laboriously compile all of his 'progris riports'. As you read, you'll be able to see huge changes in grammar, spelling, sentence structure and depth of each report.
