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.

    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.

    "Smile from Ear to Ear"

    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.

    "Made me fall in love with Anne over again."

    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.

    "A MUST HAVE!!!"

    LOVED THIS AUDIOBOOK!!! I did love the Anne of Green Gable series as a child and have listened to all of the audiobooks available and can say without a doubt, the Shelly Frasier narration is the absolute best! Her voice brings into the story like none of the others does. Susan O'Malley's is good too, but again, this Shelly Frasier narration is the best of them all!

    "Couldn't put it down"

    I originally started reading this book as an assignment, but once I started I couldn't put it down. This is an interesting well written book. I look forward to reading the other Anne of ... books as a liesure read and not an assignment.

    "A walk down memory lane!"

    I hadn't read Anne of Green Gables for quite a few years, and it was a real pleasure to meet Anne, with an 'e' again. The reader was very good and I would highly recommend this book to all those who enjoyed reading about Anne in years gone by or to those who haven't had the pleasure!!!

    I only wish that Audible had the entire series! I would love to start listening to Anne of Avonlea

    "The Magic of Childhood Revisited"

    I loved this. I had forgotten how fabulous the book is. I got it to listen to with my grand daughter (age 11). She enjoyed some of it, but it was not altogether to her current taste. Being very much of the movie generation and having seen the movie, she wanted the book to be the same. But I enjoyed every moment of it. A lovely classic beautifully read. One I am sure I will listen to again and again.

    "my faverite"

    I rarely finished whole book, but this one, I did. The story is lovely, and the narrator is good too.

    What did you love best about Anne of Green Gables?

    I loved the family members, and how Anne touched them and brought love into their lives.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Just a strong feeling of missing Anne when it was all over. I wish there could be a continuation, following Anne into her college years and married life! I aspire to be as honest, loving and frank as Anne of Green Gables, she's a pure, innocent soul and I loved being exposed to her, even if it is fiction! :-)
