Summary
Algernon, a lab mouse, is extra-clever thanks to an experimental brain operation so far tried only on animals. Charlie, a mentally retarded man, eagerly volunteers as the first human subject. After frustrating delays and agonies of concentration, the effects begin to show. But getting smarter brings cruel shocks, as Charlie realizes that his "friends" have all along been laughing at him, never with him. The IQ rise continues, taking Charlie steadily past the human average to genius level and beyond. Then, ominously, the smart mouse Algernon begins to deteriorate..
