What the Critics Say

"With a brisk pace and pleasant, natural style, O'Malley's voice makes a good match for Anne's sweet-natured temperament and higher energy....O'Malley gives the many narrative passages, and Anne's parts, a lively quality, while setting an overall tone of nostalgia to match the story." (AudioFile)

    "A Treat!"

    I loved reading Anne's books many, many years ago. Such a treat to find them on audio with a wonderful narrator. I've enjoyed several of Susan O'Malley's narrations and this was a joy to listen to. I've going to be listening to the rest of Anne's tales.

    "The narrator ruined it for me"

    I could only listen for the first 30 minutes, that's how bad the narrator was.

    "The story is fine but..."

    Perhaps the narrator was previously a news reader? All her sentences end drearily with a lower note. The reading style makes this volume of the Anne Chronicles as entertaining as dispassionate news coverage of a bleary world, the very opposite of the vivacity the words themselves convey.

    "not as charming"

    I have listened to the 1st book in the series with great pleasure. It was charming and enchanting. However, as the heroine grows up, in this the 2nd part, the book loses a great portion of its magic. The first part has the power to captivate the hearts and imagination of children and adults alike. The sequel does not have the same universal appeal and belongs in the realm of teenage fiction, that some (including myself) may found predictable, boring, platitudinous. While I would enthusiastically recommend the first book to a reader of any age, I think only my 12-year-old niece might be interested in the second.

    That said, it is still very good writing - sparkling style and precise language. The narrator is great.

    "Disappointing reading"

    I found the reading of this book very disappointing. The reader was curiously monotonous and sometimes mis-pronounced words or applied an inappropriate emphasis which seemed to indicate she wasn't thinking about what she was reading.

    "anne of avonlea"

    I felt that this was very poorly read; the children's voice's sounded very similar and lacked the joy of childhood naivity and discovery. I had listened to Anne of Green Gables read by another narrator - no contest.
