Publisher's Summary

With all of the pluck and charm of its eponymous young hero, Rachel McAdams (The Notebook, Spotlight, Midnight in Paris) delivers a spectacular reading of Montgomery's beloved bildungsroman. In moments both funny and bittersweet, McAdams' voice is imbued with the spark that has made Anne a much-loved symbol of individualism and cheer for over a century. In this story of "kindred spirits", McAdams' touching and heartfelt narration proves she is just that - bonded on a deep level to this shimmering classic.

When aging brother and sister Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert decide to adopt an orphan boy to help with chores around their farm, Green Gables on Prince Edward Island, neither is prepared for the feisty and imaginative redheaded girl who is mistakenly brought to them instead. Nor are they prepared for the way in which she will change their lives. Through a series of hilarious misadventures, Anne's uncompromising spirit makes her a striking presence in the close-knit village, bringing new friendships, first crushes, and, for her foster parents, a love and openness unimaginable before her arrival.

    "Salvation for the soul in these terrible times"

    When the country seems so dark and sad, it is a welcome relief to turn to this delightful book, which reminds one that no matter how terrible the times, there is always something to gladden the soul. Great narration.

    "Rachel McAdams great!"
    What made the experience of listening to Anne of Green Gables the most enjoyable?

    I think hearing one of my favourite actresses narrate one of my favourite books! Rachel's voice was soft, smooth, and her love of this book is evident as she reads.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Anne of Green Gables?

    Anne dying her hair green, getting called Carrots.. the heartbreaking death of Matthew


    What about Rachel McAdams’s performance did you like?

    everything!

    I read, and write. And read and write. I am an auditory learner, and thus my love for Audible.

    Story
    "Rachel McAdams Exceeds Expectations"

    From even the sample you can gauge that McAdams' voice is smooth and clear, and perfectly suited to this book. She glides through the narration, and tilts her voice excitedly for Anne and sternly somber for Marilla Cuthbert. Her voice is crisp and bright in the earphones, or makes for lovely musicality to lull you to sleep at night.

    The story itself, if you aren't already connected to it from childhood, is a bit dull. By modern standards anyway. A young orphan girl is mistakenly sent to live with a couple, a brother and sister in their late fifties. They decide to keep her and then, ya know, life keeps happening from there.

    It is refreshingly charming, a classic family delight. Just, don't expect a dramatic climax or a thrilling ride throughout the novel. Accept the enchantment of it for what it is.

    And enjoy.

    "Amazing. Listen to this book."

    I am sitting on a bench outside my son's school, having just finished listening to Anne of Green Gables, and I am actually crying. The story was lovely, made even lovelier by Rachel McAdams' narration. If she doesn't do the next book in the series, I don't know what I will do with my life.

    "Wonderful performance!"

    Anne of Green Gables was one of my favorite books growing up, and it was great to revisit it listening to Rachel McAdams's enthusiastic and flowing narration. Her voices really bring the characters to life. It was a pleasure to listen to and I hope she narrates the next books in the series.
