I want to be smart. My name is Charlie Gordon, I am 37 years old. (p1)
Maybe some day Ill beat Algernon. Boy that would be some thing. So far Algernon looks like he mite be smart permanent.
The operashun didn't hurt.
Charlie Gordon is a man that wants to be smart. He's lived with mental challenges his whole life and finally got an opportunity to get a surgery that would make him smart.
We are reading a very hard book. I never read such a hard book before.
Algernon is a mouse that got the surgery Charlie is planning to get. One of the tests to see if Charlie is illegible for the surgery. All these tests worry him.
After Charlie gets the operation he doesn't see immeadite results with his spelling and vocal skills. He still can't beat Algernon yet.
Slowly but surely, Charlie starts to see results with the operation. He can read and spell a lot better than he use to be. He become very smart, smarter than his doctors.
When Algernon dies, Charlie figures out it'll happen to him too. He becomes depressed and the surgery starts to reverse itself, taking some motor skills with it.
Algernon died two days ago... I guess the same thing is or will be soon happening to me. Now that it's definite, I don't want it to happen.
Charlie falls into a slump where he stays at his house and deteriorates quickly. He looses his "intelligence" and forgets things.
Why can't remember? I've got to fight... I'm forgetting things I learned recently.
