Charlie is a very brave human throughout the entirety of ‘Private Peaceful’. As a person Charlie grows and gains a stronger sense of bravery.

I ran off with her after dark, through the trees so no one would see us” revealed Charlie to Tommo. This act of selflessness takes great bravery especially because Charlie knew the punishment he would receive.

Charlie would think that the best part of the operation would be the experiences and feelings he got to have. For example, Charlie and Miss Kinnian had dinner, where discussing Charlie's advancement in brain development, and the thought Charlie of passing Miss Kinnian intellectually made Charlie feel upset because he had fallen in love with her. In the story and movie, Charlie never had felt the feelings he had felt for Miss Kinnian ever before.

It wasn’t supposed to happen. She’s going to hate me, but it doesn’t matter anyway because tonight’s my special night. The night in which I cease to exist. I tried to come up with an unconventional way to “end it,” but the ones I did come up with took way too much effort, such as sleep deprivation, which would take eleven days in total and would be totally noticeable because I’d start to hallucinate and crap like that. Before chasing down the last pill in the bottle with a bottle of questionable alcohol I found on top of the fridge, I raised my glass.
Charlie started out as a mentally retarded adult. Not knowing emotions and feelings, he started out thinking everyone was his friend, he thought they were laughing with him not at him. He didn’t understand politics or the way people think and make fun of him. The jokes people made about him went right over his head and he laughed at them. Charlie was smart in his own way. He worked hard and he tried harder than most people do, because he wanted to be like everyone else. He knew what he wanted, but didn’t know how to get it. It was just in reach , but couldn’t grasp it.
Have you ever thought what it would be like to be a genius? Well, 37-year-old Charlie Gordon experienced it. Charlie got picked to undertake an operation that would triple his IQ of 68. He wanted more than anything to be smart and fit in, this was a great opportunity for him. Charlie got to be intelligent, even if it was for only a little while therefore Charlie was better off having the surgery than if he never had it all.
Charlie Gordon was a different boy. He didn’t have the knowledge other people did. Charlie goes to get an operation on himself and becomes smart. He could have been better because he wanted to be intellectually disabled again, he didn’t want to be a counterfeit. Charlie’s mood, and attitude changed after the operation. Death also did occur after the operation. Charlie’s life could have gone better if Charlie didn’t go for the operation. His attitude changed, he started to become more aware that people were making fun of him and he started to dislike people and become less friendly to people around him. He also did change with his mood. His mood was always somewhat sad because he wanted to be himself again. He noticed that being smart wasn’t
Imagine if you know a horrible rotten bully and they knew nothing about God would you

The protagonist whose name is Charlie is a freshman. He is by no means popular, but not the biggest nerd in his school. He is timid, thoughtful, intelligent yet his social awkwardness blocks it all. He is a wallflower, as seen in the movie, found between attempting to carry on with his life but running away from it. Charlie endeavors to explore his way through unfamiliar domain: the world of first dates, mixtapes, family dramas, friends, sex, drugs, and the play The Rocky Horror Picture Show. As he challenges himself through these life experiences, he cannot remain on the sideline until the end of time. I think he realizes that remaining on the edge of life offers only one view on life.
Paramedic Florio Ferrente, arrives at the accident. You see, Florio is heavily into spiritual stuff, basically she believes in miracles, more specifically, second chances. Florio was hoping for a few miracles that day... As Charlie and his little brother Sam St. Cloud were both pronounced dead.
By the time Charlie woke a few hours later, she felt much better. With a yawn, she stretched, opening her eyes. There in the chair, closest to her feet was the president looking much like she’d felt before her nap, paperwork spread out on the low table in front of them.
