    Something I found very interesting about this book is that it¿s

    Something I found very interesting about this book is that it’s not even really a book; it’s the diary of a teenage girl. I really enjoyed being able to be in the mind of a girl who needed to hide out for the longest time in an attic to save her life. You get to learn Anne’s dreams, love, hope, and all from her. You get to see what used to happen back in those times. But this does not have to be a history lesson, readers. This book goes on much more beyond just the history of it. It’s an amazing adventure that you feel as if you get to experience it with her.
    Although rather marvelous, this book is not for everyone. I will admit myself that I found certain times to be quite boring and rather dull. The book is also very complex, with being from that long ago, and will be challenging for some readers.
    With that said, I still encourage you to read the book for the enjoyment and the learning that comes with it, and have a fun time reading!

    The memoir Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl is an interesting and important book that I found very remarkable. Its very informative on how Anne, her family, and friends went into hiding from the Nazi war and how they survived from what little they had. Although they didn’t survive in hiding and got caught and taken to a concentration camp, Anne and her family had hopes and beliefs. Even though they were in a stressful event, they remained calm and focused. I recommend this book because its important to history. However, this book can be long and hard to read. Overall, I believe this book is a good piece of history and worth reading.

    Shows an insightful and smart young lady 
    During World War 2, Anne Frank wrote everything from personal experiences to political opinions in her diary. As Jews in German-occupied Holland the Frank family fears for their lives. For more than two years the family lives in what they call the Secret Annex to keep themselves hidden. I think one of the reasons why this book is particularly well known is because of Anne’s age. As a 14- year old girl she fights her own battles, including all the difficulties within the ongoing war. Anne is a bright girl and I really enjoyed reading her perspective on life’s many challenges. I find the book interesting knowing that actually Anne wrote this her self.
    On the other hand, I would prefer if we could read things from other family members perspective as well. Then again, this is Anne’s diary so naturally it’s her thoughts and experiences the book is about. All the dates are included, as well as describing sentences if necessary. Anne calls her diary Kitty, and therefor every chapter begins with dear Kitty. The chapters, or paragraphs length can be anything between half a page and two-three pages. She describes everything in details and often includes dialogs.
    Obviously the books theme is the holocaust and World War 2, but also Anne’s feeling as a 14- year old girl. We follow her ups and downs over two years, and overall I think this is a good book. For me some pages seemed longer than others, but the book made me realize how small my problems are in comparison with teenagers during that era. The book brings history to life, and even though Anne is a young writer the book is worth reading if you find the holocaust interesting.
