Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables is one of the best loved Canadian books of all time. Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, middle-aged brother & sister, live together at Green Gables, their farm on Prince Edward Island. They decide to adopt a boy from an orphanage in Nova Scotia to help out on the farm. Through a series of mishaps, the child that arrives at their door is not a boy, but Anne Shirley, a precocious 11 year old girl! Anne is bright, quick, and eager to please, but dissatisfied with her name, her pale countenance dotted with freckles, and her long braids of red hair. Anne takes much joy in life, and adapts quickly, thriving in the environment of Prince Edward Island.

I had never read Anne of Green Gables and since I was going to the area about which it was written decided to. Great story read by an engaging narrator.
This is my favorite narrator-she is expressive and has a lovely voice. I sampled all of the versions before choosing this one. I already loved the book but listening to it was a pleasure.
My 10 year old and I listened to this while driving and cleaning and it kept us entertained, amused, and interested. We loved the story, the characters, and the narration. Well worth the price.
I'm a Danish girl and for 15 years I haven't read or listent to a book, due to stress. That have changed, love my Kindle. Enjoy
Cut The music. Interrupted a Great and lovely book and performance, 5 stars to both but only 1 star in total
No, great book.
When the reader did Anne's voice, it was annoying. I would have preferred her to just read in her normal voice rather than use the phony child voice.

These characters are so alive for me thanks to the CBC movie production from 1985.
Megan Follows, Colleen Dewhurst, Richard Farnsworth, Patricia Hamilton, Jonathan Crombie and company are so firmly entrenched in my mind that no one else could ever embody the same characters with any credibility. Reading the book again was like watching the movie with my eyes closed.
No matter how many times I’ve read the books or seen the movies, I am enveloped in the story every time. Lucy Maud Montgomery’s imagination is so engrossing and absorbing that's it’s no surprise to me the series is still so popular over 100 years later.
