Anne of Green Gables

When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables send for a boy orphan to help them out at their farm, they mistakenly get Anne Shirley, a feisty, independent but warm-hearted 11 year-old girl. Fortunately her sunny nature and quirky imagination win the hearts of her reluctant foster parents and everyone in the community. But not a day goes by without some memorable adventure or prank in the tragicomedy of her life.

Publisher's Summary

When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables send for a boy orphan to help them out at their farm, they mistakenly get Anne Shirley, a feisty, independent but warm-hearted 11-year-old girl. Fortunately her sunny nature and quirky imagination win the hearts of her reluctant foster parents and everyone in the community. But not a day goes by without some memorable adventure or prank in the tragicomedy of her life. Early on she accidentally dyes her "cursed" red hair green. Later, in an effort to impress a neighbor, she bakes a cake, but with liniment instead of vanilla.

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.

    "One of my all-time favorites!"

    Shelly Frasier does an excellent job of narrating. Her narration is just as moving as the story itself.

    "simply delightful"

    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.

    Story
    "So charming and delightful!"
    Which character – as performed by Shelly Frasier – was your favorite?

    Anne Shirley sounded just perfect to me. I loved Shelly Frasier's narration


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "I LOVE THIS READER!"

    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!

    "Charming palette cleanser"

    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.
