    Story
    "... and so it continues..."

    I did not like Book 2 as much as Book 1, but no “Anne Book” could ever measure up to the first and classic “Anne of Green Gables”.

    I had a hard time getting into the story in the beginning, I liked Anne’s character better in the first instalment with all her ridiculous capers and amusing adventures. I found that there were too many long and boring interludes in Book 2 that stalled the story rather than move it forward - like reading the letters the students sent to their teacher, or the random thoughts of a circle of friends enjoying a spring afternoon.

    After a while however, I found I was so enveloped by all the NEW adventures that I barely noticed the time go by… perhaps when you just like a character enough, reading anything about them can become engrossing!

    I picked Book 2 up again because I am determined to read the entire series. I’ve had the books since the early 80s and never made it passed the first few pages of Book 3; 2016 will be the year I read them all!

    Wish me luck!

    "Lovely story marred by a poor reading"

    Although none of the sequels quite matched Anne of Green Gables, I still have loved this book since I was about 9 (I'm in my 30s now), however, I really can't recommend this reading of it! Laural Merlington's voice is unutterably grating, having a nasal whine to it that almost ruins the story. I bought it when there was 25% off as it was very cheap and I regret that I didn't go for one of the slightly more expensive recordings instead. The story comes highly recommended, this version does not!
