In keeping with my New Year's resolution- read more- I decided to pick up Anne Frank's latest novel, The Diary of Anne Frank.
It is an amazing book, and extremely well-written for a thirteen-year-old girl. Isn't it a little too well-written? A little too inspirational?
I don't think Anne wrote this book. I'm not saying she didn't go through those terrible experiences, I'm not a holocaust denier.
I'm an Anne Frank denier.
What kind of kid is forced into hiding and writes, "The queerest events have taken place today, diary"?
If Anne Frank's diary were actually written by a thirteen-year-old it would more likely go like this:
"HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!! The Germans are trying to exterminate me and no one is ever going to touch my boobs!"
"Mean Nazis Suck! LOL! ^-^"
