I don't know where to start.......what an amazingly clever, highly spirited independent girl Anne was. The diary has shocked me in lots of ways. The kindness of the people who helped to hide and feed them so long and the risks they took so selflessly. The humour that Anne captured so well, the learning and longing for freedom is so cleverly written. The atrocities that occurred throughout the War and the spirit of all of those in hiding. It's so difficult to understand, but yet Anne makes it relatable by detailing relationships within the Annex, boredom, obsession with food and the need to hear and see nature.
Highly recommend reading this book.
