I loved this book, you feel like Anne's directly talking to you and only you. This makes it a little hard to remember that she died in a concentration camp. The pictures on the front cover of the many versions of the diary make it even harder. Anne does what she always wanted to do in this book. She makes sure that she keeps on living even after her death. I hope she's happy, wherever she is.
One of the most important books written and published in the 20th century. Hopeful and sorrowful, joyous and fearful, profound yet honestly simple. I first read Anne's diary in 1963. I wept. I have re-read it many times. It doesn't take long. Her life touches and haunts the sensitive soul. I will read it again.
