An all-time classic, over 2 million copies in print. Fynn found Anna wandering the streets of East London in the 1930s and, unable to discover where she lived, took her home to live with his mother. Fynn would spend his evenings talking and playing with Anna; they chatted about life, particularly science and mathematics, and Anna would tell him about her conversations with 'Mister God', to whom she poured out all her thoughts and troubles. Anna's innocent but insightful world-view caused Fynn to reassess his own. This is the story of Anna's short life and the liberating effect she had on her friend Fynn. "Extraordinarily moving!" - Publishers Weekly "Here is a book which is a pearl of great price. It will mean everything. Truth, beauty, and goodness, to those who understand ... a heavenly book, rooted in earth." - Guardian "A book that swells in the mind and haunts the thoughts." - Los Angeles Times… (mer)

I’ve been wanting to read this story for years, but never got around to it. When I realized it fit a reading challenge I was doing recently, I decided it was high time to pick it up. This is a short story, but it is FULL of vivacious, joy-filled, lived-to-the-hilt life. It was beautiful to experience, and when I finished the book, it felt like the end came too soon—but that, too, is life. Anna is the kind of person you never forget, and I can understand why Fynn felt like it was high time to put her story to paper. The world is richer for having had Anna in it—even if her story isn’t so well-known anymore.

I didn’t agree with all the conclusions Anna came to, as the book went on, but overall, her thoughts, observations, and approach to philosophy were intriguing and well-described. Reading this book is like taking a step back in time. It’s beautiful, poetic, gripping, well done, and memorable.

I’ll finish this review with one of my favorite quotes. It made me laugh out loud, and my family had to listen to me read it out. It doesn’t have anything directly to do with Anna, but I loved the general concept:

“Mum, being the daughter of an Irish farmer, was given to making stews. A large black iron pot and an equally large black iron kettle were the two most used utensils in the kitchen. Often the only way one could distinguish the stew from the brew was that tea always came in large cups and stew was put on plates. Here the difference ended, for the brew often had as much solid matter in it as did the stew.” ( )

Rated: D
Heartwarming story about a little orphan girl's theology and how it influences the thoughts and actions of adults in her world. Some good theology and some bad theology. The idea that there is One God is good. The idea that He has many names is true if we are talking about the same God. The idea that the name of God in one religion is the same God called by a different name in a different religion is bad. The character and conduct of the God of the Old & New Testaments is remarkably different than the gods of other religions and vis-versa. It is a wonderfully nice philosophy to believe nice things about the beliefs of other like we are basically all the same -- but we are not universal believers in the same theology. That day will come upon Christ’s return. ( )
