Having first been introduced to Anne of Green Gables by the TV series starring Megan Follows, I was very excited to listen to this version of the book. While Megan Follows does a good job narrating the story, this version is very poorly abridged and produced. This was a real disappointment and I strongly recommend avoiding this version. I gave it one star because Audible requires at least one but I would say that this one deserves zero stars.
Two different apples.
Megan Follows has morphed in my mind to be Anne Shirley. Having her narrate this abridged version in 85' was the right voice at the right time.
Yes I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. It was almost like one of those autobiography read by that person. I just wish it had been the complete book. Unfortunately so much of the story is left out in this edition.
Yes I have all of the Anne and Avonlea books that are available already.
Megan Follows (who played Anne in the Sullivan Entertainment movies) reading Anne of Green Gables was like Anne herself telling the story.
Megan Follows needs to do the full Unabridged version of all of the Anne books.
way too fast! I downlaoded this so my girls could enjoy the story while on the way to Tahoe. The narrator talked so fast, it was not enjoyable. We gave up.
I'm a huge fan of Montgomery. I also love the movie Anne of Green Gables movie from the 80's, that starred Megan Follows. Listening to her read the book and knowing the movie so well, made the movie and book converse together in a magical way.
The story is a classic and Megan Follows does every bit as outstanding a job as she did in the movie. Alas the sound quality is dreadful and they music overlay overwhelms the narration. Also the recording repeats itself in at least one spot. Great story and performance, piss poor engineering.
I have read this book several times and love it. I was glad to hear Megan Follows read the book. This is a book that I believe will always be a timeless classic.
