Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert of Green Gables had no intention of adopting the talkative, mischievous, red-headed girl the orphanage in Nova Scotia sent by mistake. What they wanted was a sturdy, sensible boy to help with the chores. Instead, they got 11-year-old Anne Shirley, whose capacity for adventure was only matched by her bright spirit and love of life. Still, there was something about the little girl that gave them second thoughts. She was keen of wit with a scintillating effervescence that was purely captivating. Just perhaps....

Great classic story and the reader did a fantastic job. But and this is a BIG drawback - the sound quality was terrible! It squeaked, and you can actually hear voices in the background!!
I don't know how I missed this book as a child, but somehow I did. The good news is that I'm enjoying it now and I absolutely love it. I can't wait to read or listen to the rest of the series.
I particularly enjoyed the narration done by Ms. Klein. It reminded me of the famous DVDs I watched growing up and she narrated it with as much emotion and personality as I imagined reading the books.
The worst book ever. never recommending to people who value their time and have lives!!!!
"Always My Favourite Childhood Book"
I knew I loved this book (and all the Anne books) so the question was would I like it read to me? I did! The story is the same gentle unfolding tale that I first read when I was about 10 years old and read again so often I also memorised some of the passages along the way.
There is a choice of reader I think, there being several narrators on offer for the same books. I randomly chose this one, Laurie Klein and I like her voice. It's not the voice I had 'in my head' but it didn't get in the way or spoil it for me.
Very enjoyable, innocent and gentle, a great way to spend a few hours.
