Anne of Green Gables | [Lucy Maud Montgomery]

Anne of Green Gables

When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables, Prince Edward Island, send for a boy orphan to help them out at the farm, they are in no way prepared for the error that will change their lives. The mistake takes the shape of Anne Shirley, a redheaded 11-year-old girl who can talk anyone under the table. Fortunately, her sunny nature and quirky imagination quickly win over her reluctant foster parents. Anne's feisty spirit soon draws many friends - and much trouble - her way.

    Little bit crazy but prefer the term eccentric. I am a recluse by nature so I live for my books and the friends I find within their pages.

    "Great story, classic I have always loved"
    What did you like best about Anne of Green Gables? What did you like least?

    I love the characters and the honesty of the story. It is as it was in the past when children were disposable but Anne brings love and light where ever she goes.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Matthew and Anne and their relantionship.


    What three words best describe Arika Escalona’s performance?

    Not quiet right


    Do you think Anne of Green Gables needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It has many sequels.

    I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.

    I had never read this book before and was not sure I would enjoy it, but I absolutely loved it. Montgomery portrays Anne in a manner that fills your heart with love. What a great story!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Anne of Green Gables to be better than the print version?

    As a grad student, I don't have much time to dedicate to pleasure reading. There's no better way to fall asleep than by listening to audio books of familiar stories! This rendition of Anne of Green Gables is a wonderful addition to my audio book collection.

    "Very Enjoyable!"

    I love the complete series of Anne books. The movies with Megan Follows were a delight. This narration is well done and very easy to listen to - especially as background audio for data entry work! The variation in the narrator's voice for different characters was entertaining yet realistic. It was easy to "envision" the events as I remember them in the movie series. I definitely would recommend this for anyone who loves the Anne of Green Gables series!

    "Girlish wim at its best"

    A book that should be read throughly by all girls aged 9-15. Her wild adventures would inspire any youth.

    Story
    "Classic for a reason. Narration was fine, but..."

    I have been in love with Anne since I first heard her story at age 10. The characters are so real, tangible, and lovable that it doesn't matter that the story has no real plot. It's just about being human at certain age, and it is beautiful.

    The only trouble is that Escalona has great reading voice, but clearly no chops as an actor. The dialog was read all wrong (generally with the same voice and inflection as the general narration) and it did a great disservice to what makes the book so good; the characters.

    "Very good book to relax with any time of day."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Anne of Green Gables to be better than the print version?

    Not particularly, I enjoyed both. I tend to be a fast reader though and believe I am able to get more of the details in the audio version because it makes me listen word for word.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mirella, especially how she grew as a person through her interaction with Anne.


    Which character – as performed by Arika Escalona – was your favorite?

    Anne, she was able to capture her wistfulness and imagination.


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

    Whenever Matthew went out of his comfort zone and bought something for Anne that he thought would please her. She was able to touch him and draw him out in a way that no one else had ever been able to.


    Any additional comments?

    The author is a fantastic storyteller. The characters are so well drawn, you can imagine them being very real.

    "A Nostalgic Listen"

    'Anne of Green Gables' was one of my favourite books as a child, read and re-read over and over, and listening again to it was a self indulgent treat. It was well narrated and lived up to memory. Could you ask more?

    "A great story for all ages"

    As a family we spent many engrossed hours listening to this timeless story on journeys to friends and relatives. The characters, the humor, the scrapes and the history of Canada come out wonderfully in this audio book. We thoroughly recommend it.
