Flowers for Algernon - Daniel Keyes

It always surprises me, when I re-read a favorite story from my youth, when I find it is more (or less!) than it was. It shouldn't. I am not the girl I was at 15. Of course I experience the story through the lenses of my accumulated life experience. 

 

But oh my, this is a very different book than it was when I was a teenager.
