In Amsterdam, in the summer of 1942, the Nazis forced teenager Anne Frank and her family into hiding. For over two years, they, another family and a German dentist lived in a 'secret annexe', fearing discovery. All that time, Anne kept a diary.
An intimate record of tension and struggle, adolescence and confinement, anger and heartbreak, Anne Frank's diary is one of those unique documents, famed throughout the world.
It portrays innocence and humanity, suffering and survival in the starkest and most moving terms.

"A modern classic . . . Anne's diary tells a story that is true, memorable, important and strongly personalized . . . compelling reading." (The Times)
"Anne Frank's diary is one of the greatest books of the century ... As she brings herself and her circumstances into such buzzing, engaged life on the page, she triumphs over her history." (Guardian)
"Still rings down the decades as the most moving testament to the persecution of innocence." (Daily Mail)
It's interesting to hear about the life of an extraordinary young girl! This is maybe a book to read rather than listen to but still good!
This is well read and leaves a sense of loss at the end. It reads like a novel and I wish it was.
An excellent narration by Helena Bonham Carter, a very good reader. I listened to this because it is a book that should be listened to, rather than expecting to enjoy it. It is indeed very sad, and will make you think for days afterwards. However we must not ignore or avoid something because it is unpleasant if it can teach us something valuable and improve our knowledge.
