    "OK but not as good as the first"

    The story just wasn't as good as the first book but Mary Sarah's narration is still wonderful. My primary complaint is that she has apparently not narrated any more of this series so I'll have to flip a coin to see which of the several different editions of the next books I'll be buying. But putting my annoyances aside, I'm still enjoying this series in spite of (or perhaps because of) it's archaic language and culture.

    It's always too soon to write a fair review of a great book when they always keep you thinking. 4 & 5 stars are worth repeat listenings.

    "Wish Mary Sarah would read more of the Anne series"

    Love Mary Sarah narrating the Anne books. A pleasure listening to the happenings in Avonlea and so disappointed she hasn't read more of the books.

    "Great story, terrible narration"

    If you're an Anne fan already, you may be able to endure this terrible narration. If you happen to be brand new to this series, please find another narrator! Only the knowledge of what a wonderful book this is enabled me to listen to it at all. Mispronounced words, misplaced pauses and a misunderstanding of the characters makes it almost painful. Thankfully, I've read the books enough to imagine (Anne would be so proud) what it should have been!

    Anne is kind, but not sappy. This story must be listened to with stars in one's eyes.

    "Excellent!"

    I've always loved this story. I really liked the narrator and was quite disappointed to find that she had not done any other books in the series, past the first two.

    Reading allows me to travel through time, to visit the world's unique and stunning places, to become somebody I am not... It is glorious.

    Story
    "Anne Shirley is my new friend"

    I picked up the first book, Anne of Green Gables, because my daughter loves the series so much. I had never read them, so I decided it would give us books in common. I rarely read books for youth and young adults. However, having enjoyed the first book I bought Anne of Avonlea. Many have said that his book is not as good as the first, but I actually liked it more. Perhaps the slightly older version of Anne is more interesting to me; perhaps I liked it more due to the more in-depth character development. Whatever the reason, I very much enjoyed the addition of the twins, and the other new characters.

    The book is charming and sweet and gives a lovely glimpse into life in another era. I wish I had read these books when I was young as I think Anne would have appealed to me even more back then. However, after reading the first two books I have come to think of Anne as a friend and I am looking forward to the third book.

    I enjoyed Ms Sarah's narration, though I did wish the various voices were more distinct.

    Story
    "Most annoying fictional child character... Ever!"

    The sequel is set immediately after the events of Anne of Green Gables. Anne takes over as teacher in the village school and this book is an enjoyable look at her first few years. It introduces several new characters that Anne befriends and helps. Marilla Cuthbert is left looking after Davy and Dora when a relative dies and Davy serves to get up to the same high jinks as Anne did in the first book. But, he does it without the innocence and charm of Anne, he is the most annoying child in English Literature. A spoilt brat probably with ADHD. I felt like switching the book of when e ever he appeared. But, I persevered and was glad I did. I'm not sure if I need to know what happens to Anne Shirley next. A fine reading by Mary Sarah and well worth the 95p that I paid.

    "Still Delighful"
    Any additional comments?

    Amazing story, with all the innocence and attraction of Anne of Green Gables and still also able to give you that wonderful feel good factor. I loved every minute of it. It's an excellent pick me up. Mary Sarah's narration was very good, it was nice that she had also narrated Anne of Green Gables so it was quite easy to continue straight into this audio book. In a couple of places there was background noise, also a couple of times lines were repeated. But for what I paid for this I'm not complaining, it was of good quality and far better than the ones in the public domain. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
