Publisher's Summary

Anne of the Island was published in 1915, seven years after the best-selling Anne of Green Gables, partly because of the continuing clamor for more Anne from her fans - a fan base that continues to grow today!

In this continuation of the story of Anne Shirley, Anne leaves Green Gables and her work as a teacher in Avonlea to pursue her original dream (which she gave up in Anne of Green Gables) of taking further education at Redmond College in Nova Scotia. Gilbert Blythe and Charlie Sloane enroll as well, as does Anne's friend from Queen's Academy, Priscilla Grant. During her first week of school, Anne befriends Philippa Gordon, a beautiful girl whose frivolous ways charm her. Philippa (Phil for short) also happens to be from Anne's birthplace of Bolingbroke, Nova Scotia. Anne, always the good scholar, studies hard, but she also has many life lessons. This book sees Anne leave behind girlhood to blossom into a mature young woman.

    "Great story not so much the narration"

    The Anne series is my one of my favorites, and this book is my favorite in the series. The reason I give this 4 stars is the narrator. I just didn't like her voice, the guy characters' voices didn't seem right. I don't know... maybe it's just me but I just didn't like Colleen Winton's voice. :/

    "Kindred Spirits will love this Audio books"

    This reader captures Anne's spirit and voice and is versatile enough create unique audio personalities for all of Lucy's beloved characters. I lost myself in Kingsport, Bolingbrook and best of all, Avonlea. This book was truly enjoyable and with a cry-worthy ending.

    Story
    "Nothing Special"

    I’m a bit ambivalent about this instalment. It was alright, I didn’t dislike it, but because I am determined to FINALLY read the entire series I felt like this was just a stepping stone and it did not really entertain me.

    Ah well, win some lose some.

    "Great story, but....."

    The reader has an annoying nasally voice at times and throughout the book an obviously different voice and reader would read some of the passages. It wouldn't even be an entire chapter. Just a sentence or two. It was really annoying and distracting.

    "Nice easy listen"
    Any additional comments?

    I am currently working my way through the Anne series, which I loved as child. after much research, of the three versions currently available on audible I finally decided on this one. I wasn't disappointed but the narration is not quite up to the standard of Mary Sarah in Anne of Avonlea. Don't get me wrong it was very acceptable and I have heard far worse. If you are looking for a version of "Anne of the Island," then this one is most certainly up to the job. Relax and enjoy the feel good story but be aware, currently not all the "Anne" books are available on audible so you will have to go elsewhere for the others which is a little disappointing.
