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 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.
yes because it is very entertaining and allows one to exercise their very own scope of imagination
I particularly enjoyed the underlying theme of the importance of making good choices.
She brought life to each of the characters through illuminating their individual characteristics
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.
It was funny.
Personality in each character.
When she gave up going to college.
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.
Yes, but I hope her characters or a bit more realistic than Ann Shirley
The end when she finally grew up and stopped to think before she gushed.
Yes, it was delightful, enjoyed every minute, wanted the story to go on and on.
The reader performance was perfect.
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.
Difficult to pick out a favorite but the opening scenes set the tone, I knew I would enjoy the book
Throughout the book Anne's love for her new family was lovely.
Still a favorite
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.
I think it was Anne although the couple who took her in were true heroines.
Keep these old classics alive and in print so all generations may enjoy them for years to come.
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!
Great book. Great reader. An annual listen for me, and a recurring listen for our 9 year old who has been listening to this story for more than 2 years. Both of us give it high recommendations.
I remember reading this book when I was a child and smiling from ear to ear as I read. Anne does not disappoint I laughed and smiled with Anne through her ups and downs as I recently listened as an adult. This book is a must listen.
The performance was adorable, the story was cute as all get out and I remembered why I liked it. It helps me to be happy about the small things and to be thankful for the loves and life I have.
