I did not like it for the first 3/4. I didn't like hearing about her excitement to get her period, her boy crazy fantasies or her bi-sexual curiosity. I wanted to read more about the actual political atmosphere and such. I did enjoy it much more towards the end, when Anne was obviously showing more signs of maturity and had more interesting things to say. I cried at the end. I felt so bad for them, to finally get such hope and to end in such tragedy. I did listen to this as an audiobook. I'm glad I experienced it.
