Seeing Anne grow up into a school teacher and her interactions with Davey and Paul made this into a very enjoyable book for me. I think Dora was the weakest character as I had no idea why she was even there most of the time, but this is still a very strong book.
Besides Anne herself, my favorite character was Paul Irving. He was obviously taught to prize his own capacity for creative imagination, which is a valuable lesson for anyone.
Hearing the book read aloud made it much easier to understand and enjoy.
Sometimes the right teacher makes all the difference in the world.
I can easily see why this book has stood the test of time.
I have three wonderful sons and three beautiful grand daughters.. I love to feed people specially the little people. I also like gardening..
Currently listening to Ann of the Island and enjoying it
She is great!!
No I like it to last for a long time so I become part of the story
I am saving this series for my little grand daughter when she is old enough to read/listen
Yes. Very wholesome relaxing uplifting read.
Writing it here would spoil it for you
When she makes a friend after the wrong turn
I laughed several times. It made me smile a lot.
I felt the need to review this because I almost didn't buy the Shelly Fraiser version after reading a couple of reviews here complaining about her voice, particularly with the children. Even with the seed planted I found nothing remotely irratating about her voices. Actually I thought they were quite good and allowed me to easily picture the child in my mind.
I rate this in my top 10 audio books
Mirella. Her overall strength and ability to work and change to events of her life keep both Ann(e) and the reader grounded.
There are several. I love the misadventure scenes with Davy. Perhaps my favorite is the one in which Anne and Gilbert come understand themselves as a unit
Enjoy the despairs and triumphs along with Ann(e) and friends as they face their lives out of the school room
This is a storu and writer that crosses through time
I used to love the "Anne" books by L.M. Montgomery as a child. Recently, I got the itch to reread them. Having thoroughly enjoyed "Anne of Green Gables [Radio Theatre]" by Focus on the Family publishing, I was interested in continuing with an audiobook reread. Out of the narrators for "Anne of Avonlea", based on the sample, I thought that Shelly Frasier had the most pleasant reading voice, most distinct character voices, and the clearest and cleanest recording. Would I try another book from Shelly Frasier? Maybe. I felt that the characters sounded very faux-Southern, which was initially amusing but grated towards the latter half of the book. I might try a different book by Shelly Frasier, but would hesitate with an Avonlea book.
Anne of Avonlea is a wonderful timelessly sweet story. It took me back to childhood memories of reading these books and dreaming about finding friends who are kindred spirits and a boy as wonderful as Gilbert. I would recommend this book for anyone that yearns for a simpler time and a heartwarming story.
Lover of historical fiction. I have turned to audiobooks to supplement scare reading time, amidst a busy job and parenting.
My daughter tends to listen to audiobooks over and over. This is a great story, but I found this narrator to be exceptionally irritating - especially her imitation of children's voices. I did find her narration in the subsequent book, Anne of the Island much better - maybe because there were fewer kids voices.
its a nice hearing for both children and adults, I enjoy lucy maud works, they are peacefull and calm and interesting as well, she is a good writer and has managed to creat good charachters
anne is my favorite
however the lady who read the story was not quite fit for the job
the one who read anne of green gables was better suited
Anne Shirley's adventures aren't quite as spectacular in this second book of the series, but I've always enjoyed watching Anne grow up. Listening to this again after having read it for the first time so long ago, brought back a lot of fun memories.
