    "I had been looking for a nice historical fiction book to read and came across I Remember, Daddy. I thought that this was really going to suit my needs but it turned out to be more of a nonfiction biography. I do not like that genre as much."

    "This book is extremely well-written, but it's also terrifying and heartbreaking. The story just broke my heart, and I found it difficult to read at times, however, I'm glad I kept going because it sends a powerful message."

    "This is a really gritty, engaging story, however, it's not a historical fiction book. It's a good book otherwise, but not under that topic. "

    "This is a poor solution because the book is written in English. Someone looking for a book written in Tamil would need a different version of this book."

    "If this story is true, it is one of the craziest things I have ever read. Her father was a 'spiritualist', whatever that means, and kept her chained up in the back yard like a dog. I just had this nagging feeling that my leg was being pulled."

    " The Story of Anne Frank is the best historical fiction books written in Tamil. I really enjoyed this book as I did The Diary of Anne Frank. This book focuses on the characters behind The Diary of Anne Frank and the context of its writing. I think everyone who enjoyed The Diary of Anne Frank really needs to read this as well!"
