Listener Opinions

    " This Book WILL touch your hearts and give you a tear while reading this book. I recomend this book to everyone! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tori | 2/17/2014

    " I read this book as I am going to see the Anne Frank house this summer. It was easy to put myself in the mind of a teenage girl. The story is not as depressing as I thought it might be because, of course, Anne doesn't really know the truth of what is happening until it actually happens to her and by then the story has long since ended. I think that our teens would find this a compelling read. I can now give it a strong booktalk and really sell it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel G | 2/8/2014

    " The definitive version of the diary is definitely different from what I remember having to read in school! It provides an interesting insight into the mind of a young girl and this definitive edition makes Anne even more relatable than the edited version. The best part of this I think is to remind us that Anne was just like anyone else, an ordinary teenager who should have been able to go on to lead a normal life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie :) | 2/7/2014

    " Read it a while back so I can't really remember how the book was but I vaguely recall enjoying it a lot and bringing it wherever I went. A poignant and moving tale of normal adolescent problems (like growing up, familial relationships, first loves) of a normal young girl who, despite living in the midst of a war, still managed to maintain an optimistic outlook on life. A true inspiration, indeed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikola 'minyaliel' | 2/2/2014

    " I had to read this for school. I might've been a bit too young, I think I might have to read it again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/28/2014

    " The hardest part of reading this book is knowing how the story ends. This little girl showed way more patience and understanding than I would ever have been able to manage. I commend her strength and unwavering love for her religion. Besides the stress of the war, this little girl had to be in hiding and spend her days inside. I couldn't imagine living her life for one week much less for 2 years. Anne Frank, I admire you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andi | 4/19/2012

    " If you want a view into the life of a real Jew during the Holocaust, this is the book for you. This shows you what it was really like to go into hiding because there were people who hated you for what you believed. This really made me think about how I would react if my faith was threated like that. "

About the Author
Author Anne Frank

Annelies Marie Frank was born on June 12, 1929, in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. She and her family were persecuted alongside millions of Jews prior to and during World War II for their faith. It was during this period on her thirteenth birthday that she received a diary in which she wrote her life story. Forced to flee their home and go into hiding, the Frank family was eventually found and separated, with Anne and her sister Margot being placed in Bergen-Belsen. In 1945, years after their initial separation, it was discovered that both Anne and her sister were killed, leaving only her beloved diary behind.
