I hope they use me. Miss Kinnian says maybe they can make me smart. I want to be smart.
They're going to use me! I'm so excited I can hardly write.
Charlie goes to a class for challenged adults and wants to become smart.
I have become absent-minded. My co-coordination is bad.
Dr. Nemur and Dr. Strauss select Charlie to use for medical research. The doctors will perform a procedure that will triple Charlie's intelligence.
The procedure was a success and Charlie became extremely intelligent. After Charlie finished racing Algernon, he went to pet him. Algernon unexpectedly bit Charlie, and everyone knew something was wrong. Algernon's brain deteriated and he died.
Algernon bit me. He was unusually disturbed and vicious.
Charlie noticed that reading became difficult and it was hard to understand books he previously read with ease.
Charlie became extremely ill and started to lose his intelligence. After realizing that death was just around the corner, he decided that it was best for him to leave New York.
I'm going away from New York for good. I'm going someplace where nobody knows that Charlie Gordon was once a genius.
