It's a movie as well.

I thought it was a very good book and movie. I actually enjoyed reading it, because I was forced to read it as well in 8th grade. It's about a mentally handicapped guy who has surgery (or something, it's been ages since I read it) to make him smarter. The people who tested this experiment did it with a mouse first, named Algernon. The ending was very sad and it actually brought tears to my eyes. :(

Of course, I won't spoil what happens, I'll just say it was really sad. It's a great book and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Well what a coicidence.:D I'm in 8th grade and I'm reading it.
There is a test on it and it's worth over 70% of my grade! :shock:
I hope i can ace it. The guy's name is Charlie and he does get brain surgery to get smarter. (just to refresh your memory, Krisp :wink: ).
Charlie has a race with Algernon for the first time and loses.
I got partially through the story.
And finally, did the movie come out, if so then where to get the movie.
For some reason, I like to talk about the story. :| It's kinda weird.
