If you haven't read Anne Frank's diary, written over a two year period by a girl in her early teens in hiding from the Nazis, the time is now! I will warn you that this is the entire diary, not the abridged version her father initially published. She talks about sex, her body, and the tension between herself and her mother. Anne gives us a glimpse into the stresses and struggles her family, and the four others in hiding with them, faced as they lived above Mr. Frank's business. Yet, it's not just a WWII story; Anne gives us a well-painted picture of a girl going through the normal conflicts of growing up. This was a book that stayed with me for days after I had finished listening.
I found the reader irritating at first because her voice wasn't the one I heard in my head for Anne, but she did a good job of expressing Anne's feelings in a teenager's voice.
Tell us about yourself!
I am not a big magic fan, but I really enjoyed this book. I like listening to biographies and I did not know much about Houdini.
Good writing and narration. Definitely kept my interest the entire book.
