Of Mice and Men was a better book about a retarded guy, but Flowers for Algernon wasn't bad.

I thought Flowers for Algernon was better, actually.

That may be because my father spoiled the entire thing for me before I read it, though.

Yeah, it does have some sad parts in it, but it's still a really good book.

You say that as if it is unusual for sad stories to be enjoyable.
