Inhaltsangabe

Charlie Gordon, a floor sweeper born with an unusually low IQ, has been chosen as the perfect subject for an experimental surgery that doctors hope will increase his intelligence - a procedure that has been highly successful when tested on a lab mouse named Algernon.

All Charlie wants is to be smart and have friends, but the treatment turns him into a genius.

Then Algernon begins to fade.

What will become of Charlie?

Read by Adam Sims.

Emotional Rollercoaster

A deep psychological insight into a complex character. It's very detailed, realistic and well written. I perceived the book as mainly sad and depressing, as the main character constantly struggles to understand himself and the world around him and I had to cry sometimes. Nevertheless I got absorbed into the mind of Charly and commiserated with him, which was an intense experience.

Enchanting

A stunning tour through the intellectual development and decline of a human being. I'm speechless.
