Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

A beloved classic since its initial publication in 1947, this vivid, insightful journal is a fitting memorial to the gifted Jewish teenager who died at Bergen-Belsen, Germany, in 1945. Born in 1929, Anne Frank received a blank diary on her 13th birthday, just weeks before she and her family went into hiding in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam. Her marvelously detailed, engagingly personal entries chronicle 25 trying months of claustrophobic, quarrelsome intimacy with her parents, sister, a second family, and a middle-aged dentist who has little tolerance for Anne's vivacity. The diary's universal appeal stems from its riveting blend of the grubby particulars of life during wartime (scant, bad food; shabby, outgrown clothes that can't be replaced; constant fear of discovery) and candid discussion of emotions familiar to every adolescent (everyone criticizes me, no one sees my real nature, when will I be loved?). Yet Frank was no ordinary teen: the later entries reveal a sense of compassion and a spiritual depth remarkable in a girl barely 15. Her death epitomizes the madness of the Holocaust, but for the millions who meet Anne through her diary, it is also a very individual loss. --Wendy Smith

Review

“A truly remarkable book.”The New York Times

“One of the most moving personal documents to come out of World War II.”The Philadelphia Inquirer

“The new edition reveals a new depth to Anne’s dreams, irritations, hardship, and passions. . . . There may be no better way to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the end of World War II than to reread The Diary of a Young Girl, a testament to an indestructible nobility of spirit in the face of pure evil.”Chicago Tribune 

“The single most compelling personal account of the Holocaust . . . remains astonishing and excruciating.”The New York Times Book Review

“How brilliantly Anne Frank captures the self-conscious alienation and naïve self-absorption of adolescence.”Newsday

2.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece becomes very hard to read due to numerous typos in Kindle version
By Kindle Customer on February 10, 2021
I had to write this review since, even after reading other customer comments myself, I still ended up buying the wrong version.

Giving this book to my daughter -who turns 12 this month- was a very anticipated event. I wanted to share this remarkable young girl's story that I read when I was 12. Anne became a fundamental influence in my life, at such a young age, and the impact of learning about what she - and so many others- endured during the Nazi occupation stayed with me forever.

I wanted the complete edition (which is not the one I read back in my time) and I didn't mind it being a Kindle one, as long as we could have the reader experience this book deserves, and the integrity of the Anne's diary was preserved.

It was confusing shopping for what I wanted, since there's many different versions in one same item and the differences are not that very well explained. I came across two kindle versions, one for 99 cents and this one for around 3 dollars. I saw the bad reviews and comments about having numerous typos. I thought those reviews referred to the other Kindle version, so I went for this one (I'm adding the picture to help other readers). Now I realize all reviews for all versions might be mixed together, and there's maybe even the possibility that the 99 cents and 3 dollar kindle edition are just the same. I don't know, but my daughter started reading aloud and it was difficult to read at times due to the numerous errors.

I'm looking for a paperback version now, so that my daughter can have a frustration free experience for the rest of the book. I'm just right where I started and I don't know which one I should pick now.

Hai guys👋

Before reading this book i thought this book is for kids but anyway i gave it a try and i am so gladful that i didn't missed it an d also i have a regret that i didn't read this one for this much long.👌

Book content-:👇🏻

This book is the diary of a young girl 'Anne Frank'.The story begins on Anne's 13th birthday when she gets a diary.☝

This story reveals the sufferings and pains faced by Anne's family when the Nazi part invaded Germany.At that point they are staying in the Frankfurt but they later escaped to Amsterdam.The diary suddenly ends on 1 August 1944.(This makes me to shed a tear drop)😢

In her diary she was questioning herself about the right of equality among humans.She left us a question for every vivid reader that "If we belongs to a particular caste or race then will it takes away the freedom for living?".But she was a happy and talkative person who loves to describe others.😘

When the diary suddenly ends it will break our heart and we will really wish in the courner of our heart that she will be fine & there is nothing to worry eventhough we know that she was no more..!😢

👉🏻Thank's 4 reading👈🏻

Speechless! So beautifully written, that you'll feel yourself in the 1940s hiding in the annexe with Anne Frank.
Anne Frank take us to an unforgettable journey.
Everyone should read at least once in their lives.
(One of my all time personal favourite.)
