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.

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)

    "Great reader"

    Wow. What a story. Heart wrenching and so glad we are able to read her diary to understand what they went through. I think Selma Blair did an amazing job. Read this version for sure.

    "The feels!"

    Such a sad story. Makes you feel like you know them... then tells you how they were murdered. The time in the annex gets a bit repetitive is my only negative comment, but I'm sure that was the reality.

    "Excellent story, excellent reader"

    I finally got around to listening to this famous book. Frank is a a great diarist. It's so sad that she never lived to become a novelist.

    The performance perfectly captures the tone of a teenager who is by turns irritated, bemused, angst ridden, and determined to change not only the world but also herself.

    Story
    "A timeless classic"

    Few people can articulate the ordeal of living in hiding. Even fewer can do so at the age of 15 as Anne does in her case. Her words are well beyond what I was thinking about as a teenager. All this time after the book was written I stand by the characterization of this being one of the most riveting accounts of the Holocaust. This is a must read/listen for anyone looking to know more about the life of an extraordinary young girl.

    Story
    "the narrator of the book makes you believe its her"

    I have read the book a number of times but always through a guy's point of view. it was more powerful because of the way the narrator spoke to anyone who's read the book this narration is excellent and highly recommended

    "Surprisingly Sweet & Not Depressing"

    This was such a beautiful story of a girl living her life in hiding. Although the situation surrounding her hiding and her death is extremely sad and such a shame, the accounts in her diary are not. Anne Frank was a sweet girl with normal teenage girl thoughts and even a bit more optimistic than most.
