For Christmas my grandfather bought me a copy of "The Bachman Books" first edition with "Rage" in it. I just finished it a few days ago and all I can say is wow. This is a great story that really lets you sympathize with Charlie and to understand his pain and mistakes. I do indeed understand why this was pulled out of print but this is a great book for your average high schooler. I am one myself. This book has characters and stories that connect to teenagers and answer the age old question, am I the only one? While the psychologically disturbed teen would be inspired by the criminal actions in this book, this really is great for the one looking for a way to fit in. I feel like this book made my teenage years a whole lot better, because I know that I'm the only one who struggles.
