Maybe you have read the novel, maybe you have watched the movie, but either way, you fell in love with Algernon. It all started with a short story.

Read it here:

"Flowers for Algernon"

It was one of three short stories I read in the 8th Grade that made me want to become a writer. I loved it.

I read the short story as a young adult. I can still remember one line easily...
"God, I hate that mouse." -Charley Gordon

I had a much easier time sympathizing with Charley in the short stoy; all the phycho-sexual/political stuff in the novel just bogged the story down and made the intelligent Charley come off as a jerk.
