Publisher's Summary

Historic Prince Edward Island in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence is the scene of this charming romance, which has captivated generations of readers young and old. Anne, the orphan child who brings happiness and love into the lives of her foster parents, is one of the most beloved heroines in all literature. But life was not kind to her at the start of her great adventure. For when Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, living alone, decided to adopt a child from the local orphanage, they asked for a boy. Their dismay and disappointment were great when a lonely, pathetic little girl was sent by mistake. At first Marilla was determined that Anne must be returned at once to the orphanage, but kindly, warm-hearted Matthew urged that she be given a chance to prove herself. The challenge laid down for this 11-year-old girl - and the mishaps that befall her before she can win the heart of her foster mother - make up the theme of this stirring tale.

    Newly retired, I am a reading fiend! I like many types of books, both fiction and non-fiction, with the exception of romance and fantasy

    "Simply wonderul story and narration"

    A heartwarming, engaging story that I enjoyed ever so much. The narration was expertly performed for the characters and their personalities, especially considering this story was originally published in 1908.

    "Pleasant light reading"

    I've seen the movies with friends, but decided I'd take a break from more serious book topics to go through this one myself. I like the narrator and the subject matter is light, which makes for a pleasant break. The chapters are short, which also makes it nice for dishes or cleaning duties.

    "Poorly Narrated - rebuying with different artist"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I have been an 'Anne' fan since childhood & shared the books with my own daughters throughout their childhood. It was only natural that I would pass it on to the next generation of my grand daughters. Being the ipod generation - of course it was from Audible.....we love this story - but NOT this version. Apart from the odd narration mistakes - I just can't listen to this voice again.


    What didn’t you like about Susan O'Malley’s performance?

    I bought it as an audio book, some time ago, however I just can't stand it being on, even in the background. I have deleted it from my library & itunes.... it's such a whinney, monotoned natarration, that I have rebought the book, looking for something nicer to listen to.

    "Narrator troubles"

    I really love the Anne of Green Gables series, just not this particular audiobook because of the monotone voice of the narrator.
