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.

    "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.

    "Great story"
    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! :-)

    "A classic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely reccomend this book. It starts off really slow with all the background descriptions, etc. but once it starts in the story it totally captivates. I listen with my. 8 year old daughter and 7 year old son and we loved it!


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

    She gives the characters a voice and brings them alive.

    "Great narrator!"

    I love this narrator's version of this book and Anne of Avonlea; I only wish she had done the rest of the series. That said, it was one of my favorite books to read as a child. The way Montgomery describes Anne's surroundings provides so much scope for the imagination.
