This book was good and bad I understood going in that it was a journal a day to day of a girls life but it was still in many cases just boring for me The book alternated between really interesting social and olitical insight and experience and then letters and diary entries that were much less interesting I m glad I read the whole book but about half way through it became infinitely difficult to get excited about reading the book What did i think First of all Like watching Romeo and Juliet and reading the diary Of Anne Frank You Anne Frank you full well what the ending will be You sit and hope that it will turn out differently but you know it is just a count down to death That makes this a difficult book to read in itself Like with all holocaust stories you sit and want to know WHY Why did she go to Norway and not to England and safety like her sister mother and grandmother But we sit here and know the outcome of the war they did not She was too re occupied with getting her degree and her future to see the mistake till it was too late and she was alone in a country where the eople were never in a danger like her So she could not ask for an honest opinion or get good advice on what to do When I i Personally I like this book better than I liked Anne Franks Diary Anne was so young and really couldn t see the bigger icture Ruth is so much older and can understand olitics in a greater sense than Anne ever could Ruth has so much better insight on the world and the war than most teens and that just hits home for me I didn t like it or found it as inspiring as other books of the same topic 3 1942 It s a strong book about a life in under
