This book is not really about just Anne Frank. It is about the people of Holland under Nazi occupation. This is a docu-story about the day to day life of the Dutch people under Nazi rule from the mouth of the woman whose family brought the Frank's, and the Franks' friends in the hiding place, their daily food and supplies throughout the entire Nazi occupation. It is not written in a sentimental way, leaving the sentiment to the listener's imagination.
A very authentic sounding story. I listened to every word and will listen to it again next year to remind me of why we hate Hitler and his butchers.
Someone who would like to see Ron Paul as the President. Ron Paul wrote the forward, thus setting up the rest of the book. He pretends to give the author the credit for the book but it is a thinly disguised Ron Paul speech. I didn't know much about Ron Paul before but know I feel I know all I need to know.
I don't know. I will still look for a book about economics that does not have a personal ax to grind.
He is selling a political point of view. I only have to turn on the TV to get that.
I was looking for an open minded explanation and discussion or our current economics, not a political tirade about all the mistakes other politicians and economists have made. If I had this book for a college text I would drop the class, even if I agreed with the text because it hjas only one narrow viewpoint. The other side does not get to speak, and there are no detailed explanations of how we got here. There is only criticism.
Earnest Hemmingway is such a household name that everybody thinks he/she must have read Hemmingway at some time or the other. Many won't admit they could have lived so long and not read Hemmingway.
It's hard to believe that there is only one voice reading these stories. Stacy Keach makes these stories come alive because of his mastery of accents and interpretation. Keach's reading makes them seem as fresh as a new day.
