"Anne Frank" is a diary written by a teenage girl during the Nazi
Occupation in World War Two. The story starts when Anne Frank receives
a diary as a 13th birthday present, from her father, Otto Frank.
There are a several themes of this diary, it deals with the problems
of growing up, and the affects war has on her life and love. As it is
a diary it expresses these themes in a very personal way.
The story is mainly set in Amsterdam during the Nazi Occupation in
World War Two where at first life is good and all is well for Anne and
her family, it then moves on to things worsening for the Franks and
other Jewish families as the Nazi influence grows stronger and

sent off to Concentration camps.
Anne Frank is a funny, optimistic, and confident and from what she
says, pretty and mature young lady who loves her father very much. She
also expresses her feelings towards other things and people very

...it is written very personally and informally in the first person. Her
writing is very effective, after some reading there is a needed

creating a minor bond with the reader. The language she uses is very
grown up and her vocabulary is somewhat extended, this is due to the
fact that she is a keen reader and her father teaches her all kinds of

or a situation very well, words that someone else her age could not
put there finger on and use quite as well as her.
To every story there is a heart, however this is a diary making it
have possibly the biggest heart of all. As a reader I have grown to
like, hate and empathize with Anne's character, after all in the end
she is still a teenager.
