I'm just curious to know what people think the significance of the epistolary format within 'The Perks Of Being a wallflower is?
I haven't really seen it used much, and the one striking thing about how it is used here is the fact that there is no mention of a response
What do other people think?

I think that's what makes the novel so intriguing to everyone. You feel like you're the one who is receiving the letters, like you're the one they're meant to get to. It makes it that much more personal for every person reading it, because you feel privy to all of that information.

I'm curious too. Maybe he's just writing to himself?
