My brother has almost all the Behind the Story books because he and his wife are avid readers and he lent me this one since I am such a Clancy fan...

Re-read the original book RIGHT AFTER reading this book!
The original book suddenly became much richer and more enticing after I finished this Behind the Story, I HAD to open up the original book once more! Highly recommended!

SAMPLE EXCERPT:


“What was the inspiration behind the creation of this book?”


In 1994, Chbosky was working on a project very different from his bestselling book and it was for that project that he wrote the line: "I guess that's just one of the perks of being a wallflower." He remembered stopping, frozen, because something in that line came powerfully to him. He felt he found in it the kid he had been trying to find. He seemed always to be thinking of the image of this kid standing up in a tunnel with this girl he finds so beautiful and the friends that he has and the school he goes to, the parties and his life. Chbosky realized that he finally was able to grasp that kid in that one sentence.
Shadows of this kid’s story gestated in his head for five years, and he said that one Saturday morning during a particularly hard time for him, all the details came together. All the impressions that he had been getting all those years just clicked together. Charlie came to him, and he sat down and started to write. In a month, he had half of the book on paper. He could relate to Charlie in many ways, part of which was what he could remember of his adolescence, but it wasn’t autobiographical. Not literally, since he said his years in high school had been very different..


----------------------------------------------------------

Don't miss out! It's highly recommended.

if you're a real literature junkie or a diehard fan of the novel (I am both) it's really a must read. Highly recommended.
