I read this story a couple of years ago. It's definetly a sad tale. I wished it would've had a better ending than the guy going back to being retarded and not getting the girl, but I guess it couldn't be helped. Atleast the guy ends up being happy.
I read this in like
6th grade I think
love the novel, never saw the movie but heard it blew.
THis was a really good book, read it last year. It had some very funny parts, but he acted like a retard for feeling bad and not wanting to get some pussy...
His woman friend through herself at him like 100 times...and he was like: "no!! Im sexually retarded!!!"
We read this last year. It was meh.
I read it in 8th grade. It was boring as fuck.
[QUOTE=protoAuthor;15970521]I love this story, even moreso because I read it for fun.[/QUOTE]
same here, it was this or the man in the iron mask, which was quite confusing at the begining.
I read it in Middle School, one of the best stories I've ever read. The ending had me in tears D:
Read it in english.
I liked it a lot more before I had to do classwork, because writing letters and diary entries in the first person kind of ruins the story for me.

anne frank was like that. didn't mind that much.
I read this back in 8th grade.
I thought it was great, I definitely recommend it.
Very sad, but very good.
Def one of the best stories I've ever read
I remember that, but sadly his first progress report has the same level of grammar and spelling that is used on multiplayer games :sigh:
I just read it.. man that was defiantly one of the best short stories I've ever read. It really touched me, I actually felt pretty sad while reading it near the end... It was worth the read.
I read this in 8th grade. Sucks that the guy goes back to being retarded.
I just read it, sad but very good.
I love this book.
I liked when the Simpsons did their take on this.
I've read it. I thought Leo Tolstoy's "How Much Land Does a Man Need?" was a lot better, but this is still a good short story.
"Hey guys, look what we read in my 6th grade english class!"
I had to read it in the 8th grade.
i read part of it in 8th grade, i was recommended to read the rest.
I read this in English and it really made me feel quite sad for the main character. Brilliant read.
Short story and movie were awesome but sad.
[QUOTE=purpleeggguy;15970513]Same, except my teacher made us overanalyze it to death, looking for symbols and shit.
An excellent story though.[/QUOTE]Same here. I think my English teacher ruined my enjoyment of the story.
-snip snip snip-
What symbols are even in the story?
I can understand a few like Mrs Killigan as his sexuality or something but there's not much.

Yeah there's not that much to look for. It's a pretty straight forward story to me. Seems like a lot of people here have read it when they were younger.. must be a European thing lol.. I don't think many people from Canada had to read this in school.
