Publisher's Summary

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.

Loved the narration.

The style of narration was great. The voice modulation gave a very realistic feel... it seemed seemed​ as if Anne herself was talking.
This was my first audio book and I am surely not disappointed.

So glad I decided to buy this book.

I decided to listen to this after the book remained on my shelf, gathering dust. What an incredible book - Anne's diary entries are so detailed I almost felt I was there watching them all. Beautifully read by Helena Bonham Carter. I didn't want it to end and I felt myself becoming nervous at the thought these people would be caught at any moment. Thank you Anne M Frank.

Excellent book and a must read for any modern teenager

I remember reading this book as a child and loving it and was surprised at 28 years old how poignant and relevant it is still all these years later. As a teenager all the feelings Anne went through I remember feeling which is remarkable seeing as it was written over 70 years ago. The feelings and angst felt might have been the same, but of course our upbringing and circumstances were entirely different which is what makes the book so remarkable.

The most important message that is taken away from this book is how pointless war is and how pointless Anne's subsequent death was. For an innocent Jewish teenager from a family that wasn't even particularly religious, to have been murdered because she was a Jew just seems so tragic and pointless.

The book seems ever more poignant in 2016 as the world again turns a blind eye on a race of people in flight from an oppressive regime. Neighbour turned against neighbour in the 40's and it seems like it was just as justifiable then as it is nowadays. It seems a sad fact that nothing has been learnt from history and the human race repeats it's past mistakes over and over. Very thought provoking book!

So glad I've finally read this...

To be honest, the story seems so normal, so typical of a teenage girl, however the extenuating circumstances and the trials and tribulations they go through before the devastating and tragic conclusion are an incredible insight into what it was like during those times. May situations like this never happen again.
