Top Customer Reviews
The faith and trust he had in the author proved to be extremely well placed and this book is an absolute must read for anybody who wants to know the true story of Ann Frank and her times. Excellent.
She presents Anne as a real person, not a haloed angel, and is one of the few writers who has actually paid close attention to the people in Anne's life - her mother, her reclusive but phenomenally gifted sister, even her American penfriend. The result is not only a vivid portrait of one of the most talented writers that the world has ever been unfortunate enough to lose, but a candid snapshot of a laughing, living girl. I closed the book feeling as if Anne might come bursting into the room at any moment.
On a more sober note, Lee disabuses us of the comfortable notion that Anne's most famous sentiment ("I still believe that all people are good at heart") must have immunised her against the suffering in the camps. Her death was not the gentle expiration of a calm, dispassionate saint. It was painful and cruel and sickening. In graphic language, drawing heavily on the testimony of survivors, Lee pulls us into the camps and forces us to watch as Anne eventually succumbs to malnutrition and horrific disease.Read more ›
