A father's love and grief
Is there anything you would change about this book?
The journal itself, bittersweet and painful and yet full of hope, is incredible. The love of this father for his daughter, taken from him so young, is shining through.
If I could change anything, it would be the narrator of this book.. I do not know why, but this narrator has always frustrated me. I would have picked a different one for this book.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Anna?
When William writes about picturing Anna as a teenager, knowing that she had been through so much and thinking that he would tell her that she could get through anything. The dreams of a parent for their child are on full display here... but the grieving process is so new when William makes this observation that it is unique in its beauty.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Was Anna worth the listening time?
Yes. Anyone who thinks that life is meaningless, that even young imperfect lives do not matter... you cannot read this book and still believe that.
