    (341)

    When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables send for a boy orphan to help them out at their farm, they mistakenly get Anne Shirley, a feisty, independent but warm-hearted 11 year-old girl. Fortunately her sunny nature and quirky imagination win the hearts of her reluctant foster parents and everyone in the community. But not a day goes by without some memorable adventure or prank in the tragicomedy of her life.

    "Great!"
    Overall

    I liked the reader very much. I'm a 9 year old boy and I thought the story of Anne was really cool. I wish she was a real person. The other characters in the book are great too.

    From actor Cary Elwes, who played the iconic role of Westley in The Princess Bride, comes a first-person account and behind-the-scenes look at the making of the cult classic film filled with never-before-told stories, exclusive photographs, and interviews with costars Robin Wright, Wallace Shawn, Billy Crystal, Christopher Guest, and Mandy Patinkin, as well as author and screenwriter William Goldman, producer Norman Lear, and director Rob Reiner.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I wish there had been more stories from other cast members and less fluffy prose about how amazingly talented and lucky everyone was. Felt really padded - the book could have been at least one third less long.


    What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

    as mentioned above- too little substance


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Cary Elwes' accents were great.


    Do you think As You Wish needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No! Too much book for the material as it is.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to know more insights by other actors, the director, etc.

    Story

    In this stunning sequel to The Golden Compass, the intrepid Lyra finds herself in a shimmering, haunted otherworld, Cittagazze, where soul-eating Specters stalk the streets and wingbeats of distant angels sound against the sky. But she is not without allies: 12-year-old Will Parry, fleeing for his life after taking another's, has also stumbled into this strange new realm.

    Geoffrey says: "The second book in a fantastic trilogy!"
    "Lose yourself in another world"
    Overall

    I read the Pullman trilogy years ago and it has made me think more than nearly any other books I have read. The audiobook is very well done, with a full cast, and really helps you appreciate the layers of storytelling going on. Wonderful characters, wonderful imaginative story.
