Flowers for Algernon
I just finished reading Flowers for Algernon. The book's an interesting read. The only part I didn't much care for was the fiasco at the academic conference. (Having attended conferences, the description struck me as much too contrived.) There have been a number of adaptations, such as a recent Japanese TV series with the same title (アルジャーノンに花束を). Watching some of the first episode, it looks like it follows the main plot line with at least a few innovations. There's also an episode (Season 12, 9th episode) of the Simpsons and a 1968 film Charly (both of which I have yet to see) based on the story.
