What the Critics Say

"The new edition reveals a new depth to Anne's dreams, irritations, hardship, and passions....There may be no better way to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II than to reread The Diary of a Young Girl, a testament to an indestructive nobility of spirit in the face of pure evil." (Chicago Tribune)

    Story
    "Excellent - Should be required reading."
    What did you love best about Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl?

    I always knew it existed, but I decided to read if after watching the play.


    What other book might you compare Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl to and why?

    It is unlike anything else.


    What does Selma Blair bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think that she was excellent. Her performance added a real life to the story of Anne Frank. Her performance made me realize, like never before, that Anne Frank was a real little girl, who was hopeful, but also terrified.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried, not so much while reading, but afterwards, when the full force of what happened to her hit me.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent.

    Story
    "A beautiful insight."

    A wonderful insight into what Annes life was like inside the annex. and what went through people's (specifically the jews) minds in the horrendous days of WWII.
    It helped me realize that I must be thankful to live in a time and place where such terrors do not occur. Anne also brought up many valid points which inspired me to do better within my own life.

    I do wish that there weren't any omissions, however. I feel that to omit passages (sexual, offensive, or otherwise), it hinders the true authenticity of Annes story.

    Even though I already knew that Anne didn't survive, I still found myself hoping through the book that she would somehow escape and accomplish many of her aspirations.

    Story
    "Good story, Awful narration"
    Where does Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's not one of my favorite narrations. The book drags one through the inner workings of Anne's mind- and it allows you to watch her mental growth as a young teenager


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I've listened to the book for 7 hours. I keep listening because it has been one of those books on my "need to read list." That is the only reason I keep listening. I don't find it interesting. And the narrator is awful!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Selma Blair’s performances?

    NO. Never. She is awful. Absolutely awful.
