I originally read the short version of this years ago in high school, and it was one of the few things that stuck with me all the way up to last year, when I picked the full-length novel up. I was very glad that I did. This book's great success is that it show's the reader that Charlie is every bit as human, and as worth of respect as a human being, both before his intelligence is increased, and after he starts to regress. He is a sympathetic character, but this isn't a sympathy that is gained at the expense of Charlie's dignity.
