Lucy wrote that Anne is an extension of herself and represents the independent, "new" woman of the emerging 20th century. Individualistic, resourceful, and of a great humanitarian heart, she remains a great role model for girls and women today.

I love this story!!!!!!!!!!!!And Anne is awesome.When Anne was little, she was funny and peculiar .i wish I were as smart as her! Mrs Lucy you're a good writer!!😃🌷
I love timeless classic's. They never get old no matter how many times you listen to them. Great narrator too.
Wonderful wonderful book! I really enjoyed the story. Who wouldn't love this book. A must read! Moving on to the next one in the series, it's so good!
Shelly Frasier does an excellent job of narrating. Her narration is just as moving as the story itself.
I completely fell in love with Anne from.Green Gables. Listening to this classic as an adult is an entirely different experience than reading as a girl of about ten. My appreciation for the beautifully written story grew with each chapter, I hardly wanted it all to end. The detailed descriptions of Anne's witness to the world gave me new daily appreciation for the splendor we so often take for granted. Absolutely one of the most charming novels ever written and narration brings it all to life.
Anne Shirley sounded just perfect to me. I loved Shelly Frasier's narration
There were several, but I won't spoil them for potential readers. This is one of the few books I found to be genuinely moving. I laughed at Anne's foibles, got annoyed at her incessant chatter, and cried at her sorrows.
I can't recommend this book highly enough. While reading, I was reminded of the importance of appreciating the wonder and beauty in everything around me.
Years ago, I had read Anne of Green Gables and wanted to have a copy on my ipod, but I was worried about getting a dud reader. This reader is excellent! I laugh out loud quite often at the reader's interpretations of Anne and Marilla! The story is wonderful!
how true to life the people are
I haven't listened to Shelly Frasier's other performances
It reminds me of people I know currently and have known
The descriptions of countryside are beautiful

A Canadian accent?
I am grateful that I have never met such a manipulative, pretentious, and persistently noxious child.
Sometimes you need a palette cleanser of a book, before going on to another that enchants you. This is a good palette cleanser.
The story is as old as time. A poor character, with a great attitude conquers life's struggles and finds in the end that simple life and family are most important.
