Why do we write reviews? You have a lot of reasons I guess. But for this review there is only one. I am writing this for my conscience. Ever since I have rated this book, I always end up asking myself that, have I rated it with something it deserved or was it just out of sympathy some call it pity vote?
Reading other reviews although most people just rate it and proceed posed me with many other questions and also gave me idea of what people generally think about her and her diary.
Yes it is a diary not a book. I had the least of the expectation, knowing that she was 13 years old but she just surprised me by the outlook she carried of life. She at times made me laugh, at times made me feel sad. If she felt something, her writing definitely made me experience it and thus she overcame my expectation by large margin.
I have read in lot of review that her thoughts were way ahead of her age. Of course they were, difficult conditions make you mature and responsible, but there were also other people living under the same roof and in same condition, the suffering had even effect on them.
Some say she could visualize herself and her thoughts and actions from different perspective and thus realise her fault. The thing with diary is that it is a lopsided view of the events. She would write her thoughts and what she wrote of others were her interpretation of them Does it matter what kind of girl was she?
Last thing that occur to me is that many people found it uninteresting and tiresome. I mean they were in hiding for their life in a same house for two years without even opening the window; they were not solving murder mystery.
I remember that when I was halfway through the book, I would every now and then turn to the last diary entry and count the days that remained. I felt very sad and depressed and it would have been the last thing to occur to me that it was uninteresting; I was just taken by her wish to see the outside world again, feel the fresh wind and to go to school, but This is not a book to enjoy much; we read it to gain the insight of hardships that people had to go through during this holocaust.
Through this book she give us best view of the worst of the world. No one has ever benefitted from war; all it gives is pain and misery.
All this being said there is nothing to review the book, but accept it as written account of the vices of the war. The worst question that seemed to have been slapped across my face was: Would this book have meant the same if Anne had survived the holocaust and lived to become old?
