Both have a "secret" reason as to why they are the way they are. Both are written in 1st person and take the form of written communications. Charlie exclusively writes letters.

Pat writes journal entries and letters, although we also see a few letter's in Nikki's voice view spoiler [actually Tiffany's voice hide spoiler ]. Both Charlie's and Pat's voices are remarkably childlike for their ages. Both are unreliable narrators. However, for all their similarities, they are quite different books.

It's like Chbosky and Quick took the same central conceit and ran in complete opposite directions. Perks is jewel-like in its surreal isolation.

The Silver Linings Playbook

It is so all about Charlie and his voice and his experience and his life. Chbosky is an instinctual writer who I can imagine wrote Perks very fast in a fit of apocryphal epiphany.

He doesn't spend a lot time pondering the whys of things because teenagers don't care. So why should we. We put too much of a premium on knowing the backstory, knowing the genesis of every action we take. Perks delights in the unknown, even so far as to shove the big reveal to the epilogue, as if that event and the discovery and the hospitalization are not the story.

See a Problem?

Silver Linings Playbook has a totally different philosophy. It is set in the adult world, where events are not isolated, where what happens now resonates, where what happened then paralyzes.

Pat's story has context. Where Perks ends with Charlie coming out of the hospital, Playlist begins with Pat coming out of the hospital.

Playlist is about the consequences, about how we move on. Quick knows that these character's backstory and their relationships matter. He likes the whys of things and doesn't delight in the present, preferring to wallow in the past, like most adults I know.

The Silver Linings Playbook

The narrative conceit of Pat writing down his thoughts of the day works well here. Because of the length of Pat's stay in the neural center and his powerful sedative cocktail, his memory leaks.

He has to write everything down to remember everything. To Pat writing is more than putting pencil to paper, it is almost identity itself. It is how he remembers who he is.

We see an example of this when he first starts to write to Nikki and he sends her two hundred pages of his journals. Maybe I'm reading too much into a one sentence explanation, but I found it moving. I need you to want this.

If only for me, Pat. But I am also afraid the people from my old life will not be as enthusiastic as I am now trying to be. While Mom is signing legal papers, I take one last shower in my room and then fill my duffel bag with clothes and my framed picture of Nikki. I say goodbye to my roommate, Jackie, who just stares at me from his bed like he always does, drool running down off his chin like clear honey. Poor Jackie, with his random tufts of hair, oddly shaped head, and flabby body.

What woman would ever love him? He blinks at me.

The Silver Linings Playbook: A Novel

I take this for goodbye and good luck, so I blink back with both eyes—meaning double good luck to you, Jackie, which I figure he understands, since he grunts and bangs his shoulder against his ear like he does whenever he gets what you are trying to tell him. My other friends are in music relaxation class, which I do not attend, because smooth jazz makes me angry sometimes.

Thinking maybe I should say goodbye to the men who had my back while I was locked up, I look into the music-room window and see my boys sitting Indian style on purple yoga mats, their elbows resting on their knees, their palms pressed together in front of their faces, and their eyes closed.

Luckily, the glass of the window blocks the smooth jazz from entering my ears. My friends look really relaxed—at peace—so I decide not to interrupt their session. I hate goodbyes.

In his white coat, Dr. Timbers is waiting for me when I meet my mother in the lobby, where three palm trees lurk among the couches and lounge chairs, as if the bad place were in Orlando and not Baltimore. Enjoy your life, he says to me—wearing that sober look of his—and shakes my hand.

But I make sure he understands that he has failed to infect me with his depressing life philosophies—and that I will be looking forward to the end of apart time. Timbers, which is exactly what Danny—my only black friend in the bad place—told me he was going to say to Dr. Timbers when Danny got out.

Timbers squints as if I had punched him in the gut. As my mother drives me out of Maryland and through Delaware, past all those fast-food places and strip malls, she explains that Dr. On the Delaware Memorial Bridge, she looks over at me and asks if I want to get better, saying, "You do want to get better, Pat.

I say, I do. And then we are back in New Jersey, flying up As we drive down Haddon Avenue into the heart of Collingswood—my hometown—I see that the main drag looks different.

So many new boutique stores, new expensive-looking restaurants, and well-dressed strangers walking the sidewalks that I wonder if this is really my hometown at all. I start to feel anxious, breathing heavily like I sometimes do. Patel, will have me feeling normal in no time.

I find the weight bench my mother had promised me so many times, along with the rack of weights, the stationary bike, dumbbells, and the Stomach Master , which I had seen on late-night television and coveted for however long I was in the bad place. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I tell Mom, and give her a huge hug, picking her up off the ground and spinning her around once. Review"It's a charmingly nerve-wracking combination The book is cinematic, but the writing still shimmers. This nimble, funny read is spiked with enough perception to allow the reader to enjoy Pat's blindly hopeful philosophy without irony. From the beer-soaked Bacchanalian tailgating to the black holes of despair into which Iggles fans plunge themselves after a defeat, Quick is dead-on.

Pat [Peoples] is as sweet as a puppy, and his offbeat story has all the markings of a crowd-pleaser. Quick—and the beginning, I hope, of a big career.

Nevertheless, it is possible that more reasons may need to be added so that the model can be applied to a larger corpus.
