The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Flowers for Algernon - Daniel Keyes - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of Flowers for Algernon:

Studying an experimental cycle of intelligence.

My favorite Daniel Keyes quote from the book:

"I am afraid. Not of life, or death, or nothingness, but of wasting it as if I had never been."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Do you want to be a better person?

Does intelligence make you happier?

My review of Flowers for Algernon:

The story enthralled me completely.

Made me question the kindness of humanity.

The last P.S. broke my heart.
