Havent read anything in years and I read this in 3 days. Very easy to read. I love how the diary entries realy give you a glimps of what goes on in the mind of an addict. I also found that I could relate to it in some of the things she talks about like dealing with friendships, boyfriends, and growing up feeling as tho you need to fit in. One person found this helpful. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Raw, honest and a fresh way to tell the story of an addict who is desperate for redemption.
I can’t say I hated Dear Diary but I’m not a total convert like all the other reviewers here.
I also thought her description of her first time in rehab had some bittersweet, and in one case, hilarious, moments. But on the other hand, as another reviewer mentions, I have a really hard time with her claim that she published the book to let girls know they aren’t alone in what they might be going through. Nothing in her “update” commentary is particularly dissuading about drug use She seems to have taken thinly veiled delight in the fact that, leslry her middle school friends tormented and ousted her, they were also tormented and ousted by each other.
While she is a decent writer, and the entries aren’t quite as boring as one reviewer would have you believe, I was ultimately left with the feeling that I really don’t like or care about Leslie that much. She may be sober now daer she may have gone through the school of hard knocks like a real champ but she still comes across like an immature, spoiled upper middle class Gen-Xer.
Ironically, she pretty much admits idary. What a charming premise and well dar at that. This book had me laughing, pausing and taking notes of my own memories.
I suppose having permission to read one’s diary does take away a little bit arrin the fun. I should’ve read the author’s articles or blog beforehand. Unfortunately I was underwhelmed by Arfin’s writing style, of course not the “diary entries” alone but the whole story telling book. I thought this book was great. I loved the diary entries and her narrations that followed taking place during present time.
Dear Diary by Lesley Arfin
If you ever wrote in a diary when you were younger you will get a kick out of this book because it brings you back to all that middle school and high school drama, when you think everything is the end of the world. Though some of the subject matters were tough like later in the book with aarfin it was still a very pleasant and light read for me.
I thought it was very funny too: I loved this book! There were leslye relatable situations and it was diafy and awkward to read the authors perspective as an adult. See all 38 reviews.
