I finished this book moments ago.

But I can safely say I think it will stay with me for the rest of my life.

This is an astonishing book on the courage and the strength of the human spirit. If you're like me, I put off reading this book because I was worried it would be all about war, or too depressing or too serious for me to read as a young person.

I was so wrong. This book is heart-warming, and uplifting, and all of those cliche words that I have to use to describe it. Anne Frank is bold and sassy and moody and insightful. She's a budding writer, feminist and a serious thinker.

This book is sad, of course, and I knew how it ended, but that didn't change the way I read it.

Six months if you asked me what I thought of non-fiction, I would've said it was dryer than fiction, and just not really my thing - who wants to read about every day life when I use reading to escape it?

But while this book is so domestic, there is nothing everyday or ordinary about it.

If you haven't read this book, do it. It will be so worth your time.

Anne Frank feels like a friend now. A friend I'll miss.

I hope this book never goes out of print. ( )

It was impossible for me not to feel a heavy heart when I closed this book. I think the last quote in the afterword sums it up perhaps the best - "Her voice was preserved," Ernst Schnabel wrote, "out of the millions that were silenced, this voice no louder than a child's whisper....It has outlasted the shouts of the murderers and has soared above the voices of time."

Anne Frank was an amazingly courageous, determined, and free-spirited young woman. Her dreams of growing up and becoming a published writer, her fascination with Hollywood, her animosity and feelings of difference from her mother...all marked her as many teenaged girls are marked. Yet her strength in the simple things such as looking outside the dirty, dusty window at the tree, which she kept recording changes of in wonder, and her undying faith in God and the importance of morality and keeping hope would put some of us to shame as we tend to pity ourselves in much more trivial ordeals.

It is true that at times my mind wandered with this book -- after all, it is a diary where not much can really happen. She is stuck in a secret annexe with seven other people for a number of years, so little can occur. Even so, her ponderings on faith and justice, her outlook on life and self-improvement, and her essays on improving oneself and changing the world one person at a time is encouraging.

While some parts lapsed, the book grew more interesting toward the end. I don't think this was because it was coming to a head, but rather because as she aged and matured she began to open more of herself up and to dwell on a variety of important, difficult issues. I felt a tugging of heart at the sweet crush between her and Peter, the budding teenage romance and friendship. I liked the companionship and strength she drew from her older, quieter sister, and her father seemed like an admirable man and role model. Her mother seemed to love her children and her husband and, although told through a rebelling teenagers words, seemed also admirable.

It's bittersweet that her death was met only two months before the war ended, and they had made it in hiding so very long, but I like to think her courage still held up through everything. While she never grew up to become the published novelist and visit France to study art, or to be an independent woman who would be "more than just another housewife," she did pen a diary that would impact the world more than any piece of fiction ever would. A book that not only has lasted the test of time, but that shall always do so -- filled with hope, young love, promise, and a determination to remain yourself no matter the external circumstances.

READ IN DUTCH

Het achterhuis van Anne Frank. Wie heeft er niet van gehoord? Het meestgelezen Nederlandse boek dat er bestaat. En terecht.
Ik vind het erg belangrijk dat mensen dit boek lezen (iedereen zou het sowieso een keertje gelezen moeten hebben), al is het maar om je nog een keer aan de verschrikkingen van de Tweede Wereldoorlog te doen denken. Dit is een van die zaken die ervoor zullen zorgen dat het niet vergeten gaat worden, en daardoor is het alleen al heel belangrijk. Het is echt een symbool.
Daarnaast is het als dagboek ook een inkijkje in het (niet alledaagse door de omstandigheden natuurlijk) leven van een tienermeisje, die zich ook gewoon om normale dingen druk maakt.

Ik zou dit boek aan iedereen willen aanraden. Heb je het nog niet gelezen: Lees dit boek! ( )

I feel absolutely horrendous even rating this. The three-star rating is only based on what it made me feel. Because (quite obviously) I knew the outcome before the beginning, I read the whole thing with this horrible sense of dread in my stomach. To be honest, I think I just was too young to be capable of dealing with a lot of the stuff in this. Not that I think it shouldn't be read at a young age, I just think the benefit of having seen something of the world might improve my ability to "place" this, as it were. ( )
