    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.

  • War and Remembrance

    Story
    (1543)

    Herman Wouk's sweeping epic of World War II, which begins with The Winds of War and continues here in War and Remembrance, stands as the crowning achievement of one of America's most celebrated storytellers. Like no other books about the war, Wouk's spellbinding narrative captures the tide of global events - and all the drama, romance, heroism, and tragedy of World War II - as it immerses us in the lives of a single American family drawn into the very center of the war's maelstrom.

    Story
    What did you love best about War and Remembrance?

    The book kept moving at a marvelous pace. The historical information has prompted me to research more on WWII. Purchased a big atlas to see where some of the places are in the world. My eyes were opened and I realized how little I know about that time. Thank you Herman Wouk.
    I just loved Kevin Pariseau's reading. I really laughed at the singing and the flatulence jokes about Hitler. Great whining Rhoda voice and great English accent for Pam.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin Pariseau – was your favorite?

    Pug and Aaron, both incredibly strong characters


    If you could take any character from War and Remembrance out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Pug Henry. I could listen to him over dinner so long as he kept away from the faith in God stuff.
    Aaron was splendid without the overwhelming religion theme.


    Any additional comments?

    Rhoda was the most selfish and least likable character in the book. Only after time did I take to Natalie who was bull headed and although loyal to her uncle, she passed up many opportunities to save her child.
