One Star Wednesday: The Diary of Anne Frank
Sorry I didn't post anything last night, but I think I have a pretty good excuse: I went to see Nick Cave at the Electric Factory. Or did I go see Nick Factory at the Electric Cave? Either way, the show was amazing.
As for One Star Wednesday, well, normally I there might be something to be said for challenging the literary and academic authorities who insist that Huck Finn is where all American fiction really begins; or that reading The Great Gatsby is a universally life-changing experience. But to trash The Diary of Anne Frank takes a special kind of person, indeed.

This is a story about a Jew named Anne Frank who lived in Amsterdam during World War 2. Anne and her family go into hiding with the Van Daans and Mr. Dussel. She leaves behind everything . They hide in an area attached to Mr. Franks old office building which has come to be known as "The Secret Annexe". They live there for three years. Anne grows closer with Peter Van Daan. This book is about Anne's life while hiding in the secret annexe. This book is mainly about being a Jew during the World WAr2. Paul Petry

I know that the holocoust was horrible and something that we do not want to repeat again but Anne Frank is just BORING. im not prejudice and i feel horrible about the holocaust but what i don't get is why is this girl complaining about her life? she had it way better off then some people. And why this diary is even famous. Anyone from the holocaust could have written a diary and be made famous. But a real good diary would explain the holocaust more then her own love life. Anne Frank is the most boring person i have ever seen in my life. When i was in grade 3 i didn't even want to pick up this book but since i was forced to read it for a grade 7 school project....i had no other choice. i admit, there were some holocaust parts but for every PARAGRAPH there was about the holocaust...there were 30 pages about her "peeling potatoes" "feeling depressed" "studying" and "peter". There was no action whatsoever and people say that you could actually feel what she was going through...i mean get a life people. I know it's bad being cooped up and all..but....ughhhhhhhaoiwerualishfd bad book. And also...i can skip like 100 pages of the book and still know whats going on. I mean WHY AM I READING A BOOK THAT TALKS ABOUT HER WANTING TO REACH PUBERTY. seriously. so if you want to read a book about food, and 5 other people, family trees, and useless things that will never come in handy in your life then i urge you to read this book. but serseiouly you will have wasted your time. read some REAL holocaust books
Quite Possibly The Worst Book Ever, December 29, 2003

Lets just start out saying, if I could I would give this book 0 stars.
Recently, I had to read this book for school. Trying to get through this book was phisicaly painful. There is no plot what-so-ever. She just skips from one topic to another.
This book is so boring and dry, that the most intresting part might be when she talks about peeling potatos.
If I could I would burn all of the copies of this book, so people don't have to go through the hardships I did.
If you have at least one brain cell, you won't buy this book.
...and the “winner' is:
