The history of depresion and suffering during a world war along with starvation and all the humiliation along with the fact that is a true story
Anne Frant because of her courage and understanding of everything going on around her
The many Perils of war
The misunderstanding of people towards one to another
This is my first time reading completely through an Anne Frank book.... It kept my attention!
After reading this book I felt sadness for her, her family and friends. It helped me get a better understanding of who Anne Frank was and what she experienced. Her voice is so pleasant and fits Anne well.
the book was amateur and juvenile and did not have the historical plot that I was expecting.
put more historical events in the book
no one she was fine
I didn't think it needed to list as many break ins
Every book I read takes me on a vacation and helps me understand this wonderful and complex world in which we live.
Selma Blair gave life to Anne Frank in a way that just reading the book myself might not have.
I was engrossed from the very beginning and couldn't stop listening while I worked in my studio. The Diary of a Young Girl, by Anne Frank, was so open and raw. As fate would have it, Anne received a diary for her birthday and began writing just before her family went into hiding. As the years progressed in the secret annex, so did Anne's wisdom -- far above her age. Her perspective on the war, the atrocities of human suffering, and the depth of her appreciation of those who helped her family were so moving. She rarely complained about being bored and tried to keep a positive attitude. In the end, her ideas on peace and war seem so simple, yet so true. What really struck me though, was a few of her comments about why she was writing the diary... no one would ever read it... its boring... it will never amount to anything. When in reality, her words have touched millions of people the world over. If she only knew... if she only knew.
Selma Blair did a fabulous job portraying the words and feelings of Anne Frank. She was amazing!!
I don't think anyone could read/listen to this book and not have an extreme reaction. The horrific time in our history is just that... horrific, but needs to be shared.
When she kisses pater!
The fact she sounded Anne Frank herself!
Yes, but I couldn't.
She was the typical teenager
How difficult it must be to live in such a small area with 8 others
Hard working woman who loves to listen while she works. Makes the days pass quicker. I love a good book.
Classic book. Surprised me how the things this girl experiences were so like girls of today. Ending brought tears to my eyes. Loved this book
Yes, I read this book many years ago and this version was different than the Anne Frank of my youth. I thought the story was very moving and listening to Anne's story as an adult and mother made me see it a bit differently. Even though we know the end to the story, listening to Anne just talk about being a teenager was very relatable. I remember feeling some of the same things that Anne describes and that in turn made me think about my own teenage daughter and some of the things she may be thinking and feeling. The times have changed, but so much of it is still relevent.
She had great inflection and in my mind was Anne
This book is more about a teenage girl's life than it is about the holocaust. The historical context is very interesting though.
Selma Blair did a great job of narrating this heart-wrenching story. A must-read/listen. The story shows a unique perspective of the terrors of the time, the type of problems we can hardly imagine today. Anne's fate is such a shame, she really had a great gift.
