The Diary of a Sinner 15 Reviews

By: Ateefah Sana Ur Rab

I knew it was wrong, I knew that I would be penalized but I kept doing it. Even when I wanted to stop, I didn't. Only because the sin gave me pleasure like nothing else; it gave me peace that I yearned for. 

Although I knew that this ephemeral feeling wouldn't get me anywhere, I would revert back no matter how much far away I ran. That was why I resented myself. I resented being chained; that I had no control over my own will. I couldn't stop myself from committing sins repeatedly.

So, I labeled myself as a sinner who was somehow devoted to being sinful while despising it with passion at the same time. Just to let it out; what I felt deep within my blackened soul, I started writing.

I scribbled everything that I thought or felt throughout the days. Starting from one single line, the ink flowed out and delineated countless pages with the burden of my sins.

It turned out into a diary full of wrongdoings and eventually, became the diary of a sinner.

Start of the story immediately catches one’s attention and its written in a way that it seems like one’s own thoughts are spread like words. captivating start and the flow of the story takes you within your own journey of sins, sorrow, depression, resentment.it talks about that fight one battles every moment with its own self, trying hard to be pious in eyes of the world, yet losing his own self. A must read to dive in yourself!

Honestly this book surpassed my expectations! I loved the the way you played with your words carefully placing them. I especially loved how it makes you feel like you're feeling everything the narrator is feeling. It is amazing! ❤❤❤

Ateefah has a way with words. The opening was intriguing and well-penned. I've read only a few chapters yet and will continue reading. It's interesting the way the author pulls us into her protagonists' life, inner battle, guilt, and self-loathing without introducing us properly in the first few chapters. An interesting write-up from an emerging writer.
