I love this narrator's version of this book and Anne of Avonlea; I only wish she had done the rest of the series. That said, it was one of my favorite books to read as a child. The way Montgomery describes Anne's surroundings provides so much scope for the imagination.
I'm sure I'm not saying anything other reviewers haven't already, but I am truly glad I purchased this audiobook. I have spent years agonizing over my inability to use any sort of filing system regularly, no matter how organized and easy to use, never realizing that piling papers (I swear I know where most things are) makes me a horizontal organizer. Also, I have come to accept that a lot of the tasks I complete while procrastinating are, in fact, productive! I only wish I had found this book sooner.
Edoardo Ballerini continues to bring McCammon's words to life. McCammon, of course, never fails to paint a rich, vivid picture with his descriptions, but in the hands of the wrong narrator the words would lose some of their raw magnificence.
Another reviewer stated that Berry behaves like a silly, shallow, empty headed little girl in this book, and while she is very willful and obstinant (and certainly caused Matthew no end of problems), I think she behaves as any 18 year old girl in love would.
