Anne of Green Gables | [Lucy Maud Montgomery]

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.

    "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.

    Story
    "A classic I have long wanted to read"

    I have seen the movies of the Anne of green gables since childhood, so I excited to finally read the first book in the series. I was not disappointed. Of course the details of Prince Edward Island and of Green Gables made me want to book a flight right away. Anne was precocious as ever and in the book you saw more of her development into a young lady and the maturity that comes with age. I can't wait to read the other books in the series. and just like my mother shared the movie with me, I will share the book with my children.

    Story
    "Delightful!"
    What did you love best about Anne of Green Gables?

    The story was funny and endearing. One could not help but like Anne even though she was a chatter box. The lessons she learned as she grew up I could easily relate to, having raised three children. I loved the characters of her adopted family, too - one harsh but loving, the other quiet and wise. I would recommend this for school age child or adult.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was funny.


    What does Shelly Frasier bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Personality in each character.


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

    When she gave up going to college.

    Story
    "Why do generations love this little girl?"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I did not enjoy the story becasue I was so distracted by Ann's self absorbtion and total lack of ability to think before she spoke ( on and on and on). I believe we are supposed to find the poor little orphan girl endearing. I just wanted her to be quite a moment.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lucy Maud Montgomery again?

    Yes, but I hope her characters or a bit more realistic than Ann Shirley


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end when she finally grew up and stopped to think before she gushed.


    Was Anne of Green Gables worth the listening time?

    Actually, no

    Story
    "A wonderful re read after over 50 years"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it was delightful, enjoyed every minute, wanted the story to go on and on.
    The reader performance was perfect.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The look back in time but yet the wisdom and human longings still apply today. Good laugh at the statement about politicians, nothing has changed in over 100 years.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Difficult to pick out a favorite but the opening scenes set the tone, I knew I would enjoy the book


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

    Throughout the book Anne's love for her new family was lovely.

    Story
    "A Favorite loved by All"
    If you could sum up Anne of Green Gables in three words, what would they be?

    Still a favorite


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a story I have read many times over the years from childhood to "great grandmotherhood". Being the only girl with four big brothers, I was always being put to a challenge and would seldom back down regardless of the outcome. Thus, it is easy to relate to Anne. Shelly Frasier is a marvelous reader and adapting her voice to each character.


    Which character – as performed by Shelly Frasier – was your favorite?

    I think it was Anne although the couple who took her in were true heroines.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely!


    Any additional comments?

    Keep these old classics alive and in print so all generations may enjoy them for years to come.

    "Wonderful Retelling!"
    Where does Anne of Green Gables rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This classic is one for all ages. It takes the reader back to a simpler time and tells a story of self-discovery and the union of an orphan with an older, quiet couple and the enrichment they bring to each other in a beautifully touching way. Not to be missed!
