I did not enjoy the story becasue I was so distracted by Ann's self absorbtion and total lack of ability to think before she spoke ( on and on and on). I believe we are supposed to find the poor little orphan girl endearing. I just wanted her to be quite a moment.
Yes, but I hope her characters or a bit more realistic than Ann Shirley
The end when she finally grew up and stopped to think before she gushed.
Yes, it was delightful, enjoyed every minute, wanted the story to go on and on.
The reader performance was perfect.
The look back in time but yet the wisdom and human longings still apply today. Good laugh at the statement about politicians, nothing has changed in over 100 years.
Difficult to pick out a favorite but the opening scenes set the tone, I knew I would enjoy the book
Throughout the book Anne's love for her new family was lovely.
Still a favorite
It was a story I have read many times over the years from childhood to "great grandmotherhood". Being the only girl with four big brothers, I was always being put to a challenge and would seldom back down regardless of the outcome. Thus, it is easy to relate to Anne. Shelly Frasier is a marvelous reader and adapting her voice to each character.
I think it was Anne although the couple who took her in were true heroines.
Keep these old classics alive and in print so all generations may enjoy them for years to come.
This classic is one for all ages. It takes the reader back to a simpler time and tells a story of self-discovery and the union of an orphan with an older, quiet couple and the enrichment they bring to each other in a beautifully touching way. Not to be missed!
In pursuit of truth, justice, and an end to spoilers!
I liked this book as a child but loved it even more as an adult! Timeless and endearing, it was pure sunshine to hear. Listening to this soothed nerves I hadn't realized were frazzled.
It's not often you can go back to a book you liked from long ago and find it's even better than you remember. Montgomery transports you completely to another age and time, and you bring back nothing but smiles! Recommended for red heads, romantics, curmudgeons, and readers of all shapes and sizes.
The narrator is perfect. I wouldn't want to hear the rest of Anne's tales from another reader, so I'll seek out all of Shelley Frasier's versions I can find!
Great book. Great reader. An annual listen for me, and a recurring listen for our 9 year old who has been listening to this story for more than 2 years. Both of us give it high recommendations.
I remember reading this book when I was a child and smiling from ear to ear as I read. Anne does not disappoint I laughed and smiled with Anne through her ups and downs as I recently listened as an adult. This book is a must listen.
The performance was adorable, the story was cute as all get out and I remembered why I liked it. It helps me to be happy about the small things and to be thankful for the loves and life I have.
LOVED THIS AUDIOBOOK!!! I did love the Anne of Green Gable series as a child and have listened to all of the audiobooks available and can say without a doubt, the Shelly Frasier narration is the absolute best! Her voice brings into the story like none of the others does. Susan O'Malley's is good too, but again, this Shelly Frasier narration is the best of them all!
I originally started reading this book as an assignment, but once I started I couldn't put it down. This is an interesting well written book. I look forward to reading the other Anne of ... books as a liesure read and not an assignment.
