Annexed Book Review (7/10)

All, or at least most, of us have read Anne Frank’s story at least once (and some of us many times more). The amazing thing about Anne Frank’s story is that it shows how awful the events of the holocaust were, even from a situation that had nothing to do with “the camps.” And I thought Anne’s story was the only one of these unique stories, until I discovered Annexed by Sharon Dogar. At first I was appalled that somebody would create a story based off of a boys words who went through such an awful situation, without knowing a thing about how he actually felt about the matter. It was about 3 chapters into the book when I realized something, these are Peter’s words (the main character) only they are based off of what Anne had describes in her diary originally. After calming down about such a serious matter being spoken about from a point of view that the author knew nothing about, I couldn’t put the book down. I would have given the book a better rating, however I felt it was repetitive of what the original diary of Anne Frank spoke about due to the fact that it was the only thing documenting this specific event.
