I find this book to be one of the most difficult I’ve ever rated/reviewed. On one hand, the “shock and awe” propaganda tactics of the author writing this “diary” are so cliché it’s absolutely laughable so I want to give it 1 Star. On the other hand, it’s well written, I flew right through it and, although I’m sure the author would be horrified by this, I found it highly entertaining so I want to give it 4. I’m splitting the difference (kinda) and going with a 3 Star. As far as “modern classics”, you could do a lot worse than Alice if that’s the genre you are looking for.
