I'm not sure why, but I wasn't looking forward to reading this, I was expecting it to be rather dull. In the end though I really enjoyed this book, it took me back to being a teenager - minus the war etc! It's both funny and sad, a brilliant read.

No other book gives such a hauntingly clear picture of life in hiding from the Nazis

Anne was such an amazing girl; it's a shame her life was cut so short. Her dream was to become a writer, and it's comforting to know that even a genocide was not powerful enough to keep Anne's dream from coming true! I truly think every young adult should read this novel.

Wow. I think this is historically very important. It makes what happened easier to relate to instead of it just being cold colourless photos and text.

A beautiful, moving account of how even in the face of fascism, genocide and potential death, it is still possible to have faith in people and to make the best of life. Anne Frank did not die in vain because her diary has made an echoing social impact that will not ever be forgotten.
