    Historic Prince Edward Island in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence is the scene of this charming romance, which has captivated generations of readers young and old. Anne, the orphan child who brings happiness and love into the lives of her foster parents, is one of the most beloved heroines in all literature. But life was not kind to her at the start of her great adventure. For when Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, living alone, decided to adopt a child from the local orphanage, they asked for a boy.

    Clinton says: "O'Malley leaves something to be desired"
    "Great story; poor narration"
    Overall

    I was disappointed to hear such a dry narration of this fantasic book by L.M. MOntgomery. Anne of Green Gables is my all time favourite childhood story of an orphan girl with irrepressible imagination, spirit, and a nack for mishaps mixed with heroism. This books needs a bubbly, energetic, passionate narrator. Too bad the publishers of this audiobook chose a reader with a dry monotone voice. I would prefer to read the story to my daughter myself to recapture the true whimsy and delight of the red-headed Anne that this narrator has left behind.
