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)

    "Anne is so relatable! Amazing writing skill!"

    Anne is granted one of her wishes - she will live on through her inspiring, telling, and honest, well written diary! Kudos to the performance as well, it was well read with what seemed to be the right amount of emotions! No matter how unimaginable people's lives are from the comforts of my audible app, I found it extremely humbling how relatable Anne's daily thoughts were. An ordinary teenager with mood swings, hopes, and dreams making the best of a situation she was not at all responsible in creating. So many people going through analogous ordeals in this 21st century. May we remember how similar we all are.

    "Fascinating"

    The story of Anne Frank, the girl hiding with her and another family in the secret annex from the Nazis, is probably the most fascinating story of a real person. It is amazing, how amazing a writer Anne Frank was. In the book she not only describs all the exciting and terrefying events that happend in the annex, but also her feelings as she mentally transforms from a young girl into a woman. The book is about feelings of courage, strength, love, fear, anger, and more.
    It is greatly narrated; one can really imagine Anne Frank telling the events herself.

    "Amazing performance "

    Narrator was brilliant. She makes it feel more personal, more human. Never read the book before but I felt like I really knew Anne and I felt deep sorrow for her fate and her truncated dreams. The diary stops so suddenly, with her display of a strong determination of showing the world what she was capable of, beyond the labels of a teenage girl who was simply too young to understand. Made me feel the horror of the war. It was so close to end...

    "A "must hear" story"

    This teenage girl's story could have been written today, if it weren't for the fact she was living in the hell that was Nazi occupation.

    sadly, this is happening today!

    "very moving"

    this audio version is well performed and the story is captivating. reading the diary of this young teenager and knowing she died in a concentration camp during WWII is heartbreaking.

    "beautiful book"

    different perspective on the terrible war. it makes the war seem so much closer to us, as seen through the eyes of a young, corageous, innocent girl.

    "Great production of an important work"

    Selma Blair does a fantastic job of relating the many moods of Anne as expressed in her diary, a great performance. Having not read this when I was young, it seemed suitable to read before visiting Amsterdam. Anne is revealed as a good storyteller, remarkably insightful into herself and mature beyond her young years. The 8 in hiding come alive as 3D persons. The abrupt ending emphasizes the tragic nature of the situation.
