What are some good books written in the form of journal entries?

my diary, to be honest

>>7333924
"Sorrows" are written as letters to Werther's friend, not as a diary.
>>
Meditations.
>>
Anne Frank's journal
>>
Doctor Glas
>>
>>7333918
DrĂ¡cula for several journals.
>>
>>7333918
Dracula, Frankenstein
>>
>>7334348
Seconded.

Also, The Dwarf by Lagerkvist if we're on Swedish literature.
>>
>>7333918
Thirding Dracula, it's a pretty decent book. A lot of Lovecraft's stuff is written as diary entries, too.
>>
Literally the shittiest form of narration. Not a single good book has ever been written as a diary and I don't understand why authors still legitimately use it.

Gogol's Journal of a madman
>>
A Confederacy of Dunces contains a few journal writings, though they make up a very small portion of the book.

Nausea by Sartre

It's pretty good so far, but I'm only halfway through
>>
>>7333918
Can't believe no one had said The Martian yet. It plays, Masterfully, with the tripe odd journal entry novels, by being a transcript of video journals. It's also a very realistic book, and redefines hard Sci fi with the voice of the current generation. Could not recommend nore highly.

>>7333918
Algernon?
>>
Jakob Von Gunten by Robert Walser.

>>7334754
Anyone who recommends The Martian should always bring a huge disclaimer. The character development and writing is awful. The only thing interesting (and very much so) is the scenario and MacGyver in space.
But the fucking lol-so-quirky ninjarobots space pirate disco shit is terrible.

Based algernon. I cri ery tiem.
