Publisher's Summary

In the first sequel to Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Montgomery's feisty red-headed heroine is now 16 and a school teacher in the small village of Avonlea on Prince Edward Island. Although older, she isn't necessarily wiser, and she hasn't outgrown her mischievous antics. She learns how complicated life can be when she takes two new orphans at Green Gables under her wings, meddles in someone else's love life, and learns about romance herself when she encounters the "odd behavior" of a very handsome man, Gilbert Blythe.

    "Narration drove me crazy"

    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.

    "Enter the Red Headed Snippet"

    Lucy Maud Montgomery's stories always have the ring of truth about them. Somehow, one knows that something like this actually happened to someone, somewhere, sometime, maybe not all to the same person, but who wants to quibble? The red headed snippet's encounter with Mr. J.A. Harrison's parrot is my favorite story in this volume. There had to be such a parrot somewhere. There had to be a J.A. Harrison.

    Shelly Frasier nails Montgomery's characters in her narration. There is quirkiness which define each one on which Frasier fastens. I was trying to find a way of expressing the attitude or theme of Montgomery's books. Finally, it came to me that the Marines' credo of duty and honor fits perfectly. I have read a couple of dozen of her books and their worldview is colored in refreshing tones of black and white, right and wrong instead of the modern shades of light grey.

    This book, like all of LM Montgomery books, is funny and optimistic. I don't think Montgomery could write a boring line. It was not in her.

    "Narration is great!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Very wholesome relaxing uplifting read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Anne of Avonlea?

    Writing it here would spoil it for you


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When she makes a friend after the wrong turn


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed several times. It made me smile a lot.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Fantastic story to both read and listen to"
    Where does Anne of Avonlea rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I rate this in my top 10 audio books


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mirella. Her overall strength and ability to work and change to events of her life keep both Ann(e) and the reader grounded.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Enjoy the despairs and triumphs along with Ann(e) and friends as they face their lives out of the school room


    Any additional comments?

    This is a storu and writer that crosses through time

    Story
    "Prince Edward Islanders Southern-style?"

    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.

    "Timeless and Sweet"

    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.

    "audio quality very poor"

    Thou I like the story and the author, the audio quality was very poor. There were long pauses between chapters (making you feel like it was a book on tape and they were waiting for you to turn the page!) and it sounded like it was taped on a cassette tape versus digial quality. I am repurchasing the title by another narrator other than Shelly Fraser. Do not waste your credits.

    "Memory lane..."

    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.
