    1 thought on “The Portable Anais Nin”

    1. You poor twisted soul. But you had a magnificent way of putting words together that absolutely dripped with emotion.

    2. Most of my long-term readers know that for years Anaïs Nin has been my muse and mentor. Even though she was most popular in the 1970s, in many ways her work is timeless and resonates with women and men intergenerationally. I particularly relate to Nin's journals because we both began journaling at the age of ten after the loss of a loved one. For those interested and curious about Nin-and who want to get a glimpse into her alluring, interesting, and complex life without reading all her books-th [...]

    3. I found Anais Nin too heavy, too serious and too hyper-analytical. I could have used a little bit of humor somewhere. As she said about D.H. Lawrence could be said about her:"But there remains unexplained the intensity of Lawrence's description of these experiences. They are important, profound, but must the style be so tense, the expressions so extreme? Do people really swing from one extreme emotion to another in so short a span? We know the poets do."I did enjoy some of the short stories a lo [...]

    4. I hate when I don't finish a book; it feels like a defeat. On the other hand, I can't waste my time reading a book I'm not enjoying in some way and I wasn't enjoying this one at all. I bought The Portable Anais Nin because I'd stumbled across some quotes of Nin's that made me feel that "Yes! These are exactly the words to express this!" moment you sometimes get when reading another person's words. I knew nothing about her going in and thought this sampling of her diary and a short stories would [...]

    5. I trudged through this book but lost all real interest after the chapter on her incestuous relationship with her father. The writing was boring and self absorbed. She seemed to be a woman of extremely little substance and a very high opinion of her own intelligence. Despite her affirmations of intelligence, all documentary in this book ultimately presented a highly idiotic person with reasonable writing skills.

    6. I was curious to know more about this writer, as she's one of those people who seem to have generated a lot of pithy quotes! However, I found that I didn't really enjoy her writing very much, either the diaries or the short stories, although I did find interesting some of her comments about writing itself.

    7. Some parts are unreadable due to either being too heavily written or downright gross. But Anais is so poetic in the way she writes, an obvious great mind.

    8. It was interesting and soothing to listen to but I wasn't moved as much by it as other works of hers.

    9. Not an easy read - both her themes and her style make this hard work in parts, but there are real gems - such careful observation of human emotion.

    10. A honest, unflinching look into the life of one of the world's best writers. Can't believe I slept on. Anais Nin this long.
