    More than 50 years after its first publication, Doubleday's definitive edition of Anne Frank's famous diary generated an extraordinary amount of excitement when it was published in early 1995. Enthusiastically received by critics and readers alike, it reigned for nine weeks on The New York Times best seller list and will remain for all time the version that millions of readers will cherish.

    Overall

    I have enjoyed many audible books before, but I've never felt compelled to write a review.

    I had never read Anne Frank's Diary of a Young Girl. I assumed that I knew what it was about and that her diary entries would not hold my attention. I was mistaken on both accounts.

    I looked forward every day for a chance to listen to the book. Anne Frank wrote with such emotional candor, eye for detail, and ear for conversations that I found myself wondering many times what she could have written if she had lived. I never grew tired of listening.

    Selma Blair's reading is superb. Other readers might have just conveyed the intelligence and the eye of Ms. Frank - Ms. Blair goes further. She captures the adolescence quality of Anne Frank, the "young girl" - the petulance, the exasperation with the adults in the annex - through well-timed pauses.sighs, laughs.

    In Los Angeles, where I live, The Museum of Tolerance has a letter that Anne Frank wrote to a pen-pal in the United States. It is a tribute to Audible and Ms. Blair that when I read the words of the letter, I heard Ms. Blair's voice reading them in my mind.
