Este livro é uma edição que traz na íntegra o diário de Anne Frank, com todos os trechos que seu pai cortou para a publicação de 1947, já tão conhecida e lida.

My intention of writing a review for this book is to tell all the negative reviewers to SHUT UP! I am all for everyone's right to express their opinion but I read a few of the '1 star' reviews and I was shocked to read what a few people had to say about this book. Before making an opinion I suggest people to keep a few things in mind:

1. This is someone's DIARY not a book meant to entertain people. If you think it was boring then answer me, how many interesting things can you possibly do locked u

Why do we write reviews?
You have a lot of reasons I guess.

But for this review there is only one. I am writing this for my conscience.
Ever since I have rated this book, I always end up asking myself that, have I rated it with something it deserved or was it just out of sympathy (some call it pity vote)?

Reading other reviews (although most people just rate it and proceed) posed me with many other questions and also gave me idea of what people generally think about her and her diary.

So I’m going t

I confess to feeling slightly voyeuristic while reading this. It was constantly in the back of my mind that this was no ordinary novel, or even a true-to-life account. This was someone’s diary. Every page written in confidence, each word revealing the thoughts closest to the heart of this young girl. As a journal-keeper myself, I sometimes find myself wondering, “What if someone else were to read this?” which causes me to wonder how much to filter my words. But then, isn’t the purpose of a diary ...more

Honestly, I just can't do it. I can't bring myself to finish the book. Ive tried three times already, and each time I have been forced to put it aside. Books and film about the Holocaust are fascinating, but not this one. Unfortunately, I was not engaged and found I couldn't care less.
I'll have to try it again in a few years.

On the up side, I firmly believe that Anne Frank, had she survived the war, would have grown up to be a marvelous, best selling writer. At the age of 13 her words are bett

For her 13th birthday Anne Frank received a diary she dubbed Kitty. Shortly after her birthday with the fear that her older sister, Margo may be taken by the Nazis the Franks disappear into the night and go into hiding. It is through Kitty that Anne records her thoughts and daily life living behind a bookcase in the secret annex.

When I was younger I went through a "holocaust" phase before moving on to Harriet Tubman and slavery. The funny thing is that Anne Frank's Diary was not the first Holoca

Maybe the first thing that most people would get shocked is that I rate with only 3 stars one of the best selling books of the 20th century (and now 21st century too) and even more, a book about the Holocaust.

First thing that I learned about this book is honesty.

Anne Frank teaches us all about honesty, about telling what you really think, and so I am doing the same.

For starters, I wonder how many people really, I mean REALLY read the book, because to rate with 5 stars a famous book that everybod

Ya gotta hand it to this teen girl who was writing about her life with such clarity and eloquence when her life was hanging by a thread.

I've read reviews of The Diary of a Young Girl that complained about how Frank ignored the bigger picture of the war and that her subject matter was trite, whiny and insular. What else could it be, this diary of a teen secreted away in the compact environs of an attic with the same people for years learning little-to-no outside information?

I really wish I had a different translation of this book because this one lacks a lot of the personality and ease compared to the audiobook version I partially listened to. But this book should definitely be one of the books you read before you die because it is so tragic and enlightening. Nothing makes me angrier and sadder than seeing someone with so much potential and excitement rave about their passion for life, and in the end, never made it to accomplish their dreams, or see their work publ ...more

I'm really surprised by the number of people who thought this book was boring.
I could understand how an adult man might find the musings of a young girl rather dull, but how can people in general not find this journal utterly fascinating? Here is a teenage girl who up until the end wrote with the same emotional consistency as when she began. Whoever thinks this books is boring is because they simply fail to realize, or even imagine the conditions in which this diary was written under. To think

While her story is sad, the naked Emperor cult around this book is unmerited.

The key quotation about people being basically good at heart is absurd in the light of the story, and from a theological perspective, just plain wrong.
Mr. Z
If only every teenager would read and embrace this story, I wonder if it would change the instant-gratification, me-me-me society that has evolved over the last 50 years? Of course, this novel is a staple in any Holocaust lesson planning. In a world in which so few teenagers (or adults, for that matter) seem to stop and give thanks for what they have (instead chirping about what they want or complaining about what they don't have), Anne Frank faced the most unfair of cruelties with a certain str ...more

I thought I knew the story of Anne Frank.

I knew the story of how she went into hiding with her family for a few years and wrote everything down in a journal. I knew of the fact that she was captured right at the end of the war, when hope was high and peace was nigh, only to die of typhus a mere few weeks before her concentration camp would be liberated. All of this, I knew, I’d been told many a time in history class.

As it turns out, Anne’s story goes so much deeper than that; I’d only grazed the

A beautiful and powerful classic about Anne Frank and her family's life in hiding during WWII in the Netherlands.... it's also a coming of age story under these conditions...

I initially read this book as a pre-teen girl. I remember really being able to relate to Anne Frank and her diary at that time and also being horrified and shocked at how the book ended. In this re-read, I knew how the book would end and I am not coming at it with the perspective of a young girl. However, this remains a to

The problem with Diary of a Young Girl is that it's the diary of a young girl, and young girls, as you may remember from when you were one, or spent all your time trying to make out with one, are awful. It's like 300 pages straight of "No one understands me!"



I guess the reason this made it on to so many high school curricula is that young people might relate to it, and clearly some of them do, because they wrote pissed-off comments below this review - but this doesn't depict the horrors of the

Actually I wasn't going to review this book at all, since I read it way back in the seventies, and if I remember correctly, did not finish it.

But yesterday, just for the heck of it, I went through some one-star reviews. Two things I noticed immediately - most people disliked the book because it was boring, and Anne had a sanctimonious attitude. They were of the opinion that the book became a classic only because of historical reasons. Looking at it dispassionately, I have to agree.

I first read this book in the eighth grade. Our junior high school simultaneously did a preformance of the play. I remember that I enjoyed both the book and the play. I think I liked the love story aspect most of all -- what 13 year-old wouldn't? But I don't think I really "got" the book.

This is not just a classic book to me. It is not a tale in the age of crazy writers. It is a collection of memories, of thoughts of a young, yet real, girl. Woman. Human. Jewish.
The book presents a tough point of view about everything, Anne had the most strong opinions I have ever read. Perhaps because she did not know that some one would read her words and feel so close, so in love with the mentality and beauty of Anne.
I have read painful stories in my life, but I feel as if this one is the wor

I am basically a terrible person.

This isn't a review- I'm not going to go into my reasons for giving this book 2 stars. That would not do anybody any good. I will simply say that I feel extremely guilty rating the book this low, but I hope people understand that it doesn't reflect my view of the Holocaust as a whole, or my views of Anne Frank as a person. I have the utmost respect for both.

This book was fascinating. I was a little surprised that there wasn't more about the atrocities that were happening around them instead of all the turmoil in the household. However, I realize that she was just a very young girl. And, I was surprised about how sexually aware she was. Until she and her family went into hiding, she hadn't had a lot of worldly awareness so she wrote about what was happening around her, and that was everything that went on in that household with those people.

When I read The Diary of Anne Frank for the first time, I identified with her at every turn. I felt her emotions, I understood the plight she had with her mother. Funny how this time around (decades later) I identify more with her mother. As children we expect our parents to be perfect. As parents we keep the secret that we are still children, just older.

This was worth the read and enjoyable but was clearly heavily edited (let me say here that the Holocaust did happen). The way the diary begins and what she describes to bring the reader up to date are just too perfect. The father has recently been given the co-author designation after years of lies about the diary being strictly written by Anne. That said, I did enjoy it. I couldn't wait to find out if the boy upstairs wanted to make out or not.

“It’s just that when you’re standing beside an open window at twilight, you can say more to each other than in bright sunshine. It’s easier to whisper your feelings than to shout them from the rooftops. I believe that trust has to come from both sides; I also think that’s the reason why we’ve never really grown close.”

As a historical text it's incredibly fascinating and definitely worth the read but it's not really a book you take to the beach on holiday (like I did).

I have studied Nazi Germany for the past 4 years so to read this from the perspective of a young girl was really interesting and quite eerie.

If you are interested in the history surrounding the diary then I'd recommend you read this but if you're expecting a gripping, exciting book then you may not be for you. (In my opinion)

The thing that amazes me the most about this book is what an amazingly talented writer Anne was. Seriously, she started her diary when she was thirteen, and her writing is better than some famous modern authors I could name. *coughStephanie Meyercough*
Anne was already writing like a sensitive, intelligent adult by the time she was fifteen. If she had lived, and continued writing, there is no doubt in my mind that she would now be considered one of the best authors of her time.
