Of course, this book is wonderful. I wish that it was read by someone other than Selma Blair. I know there must be a reason as to why they chose her to narrate this book, maybe her voice really is Anne's true personality ~ but that's just it ~ Her voice is very dull and drab. Still, I love listening to the life and times of this young, amazingly bright girl. Anne was far before her time, or maybe she was just perfect for it. This book gives a great deal more detail than the other Anne Frank books that I have read. I am enjoying listening to it for the first time and learning new things about her and her family. ~
I have really, really enjoyed listening to this book. Elizabeth Gilbert has a very soothing voice and everything that she is doing and going through are things that I have done and been through. I almost feel as if I am there again. She is funny and witty and this book seems to uplift me. The time she spent in India was my favorite. Funny but also very informative. ( "Groceries" ...so funny ). Read it to find out. I found this book to be a great listen. I can't wait to see the movie.
The women who are the narrators in this audio book are so good! I want them to all narrate another book soon. They gave life to the characters. And now it is going to be a movie. I am thrilled! Great book. Great listen. The narrators made all the difference. Fantastic!!!
