When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables, Prince Edward Island, send for a boy orphan to help them out at the farm, they are in no way prepared for the error that will change their lives. The mistake takes the shape of Anne Shirley, a redheaded 11-year-old girl who can talk anyone under the table. Fortunately, her sunny nature and quirky imagination quickly win over her reluctant foster parents. Anne's feisty spirit soon draws many friends - and much trouble - her way.
Montgomery wrote the novel in the twilight of the day, sitting at her window and overlooking the fields of Cavendish. Since publication, Anne of Green Gables has sold more than 50 million copies.

I love audioboks!
Charming, seductive, classic
I loved hearing the old fashioned sayings the characters use. I also love that each character has their own little catchphrases that the narrator highlights perfectly. But of course, I love Anne! She captivates the characters if the book, as well as the reader. She gets into great micpschief but always has the best additude. I have listened to this more than once!
This was my first Mary Sarah narration. I am hooked, she was great. I am sorry that she does not narrate the whole series. I sampled other narrators for the Anne of Green Gables series, and Mary is the best! Perfect cadence and emphasis on the right words. I can't imangine enjoying the story as much with out her. She brings Anne's rants to life!
Yes I did laugh! You never know what will come out of Anne's mouth! And Mrs. Lynd says equally ridiculous things although they are not so kind.
This story and narration by Mary Sarah has become like Linus' blanket for me and I love to listen to it anytime I want to relax and escape to Avonlea.
I love books! But my family of 8 leave me little time to read, lol. Audible has been the perfect solution!!!
Yes! Many more times! I have always loved this story.
Ann with and E - Her spirit!
I have listened to this book 2 or 3 times and each time I hear it a little differently. I pickup new ideas from Anne.
When her (new dad) picked her up at the train station and he fell in love with her riding home.
She set a tone for the book.
Coffee, chocolate, happy endings, triumph of the human spirit, non-sense in a serious world, stories to share with grandchildren.
I loved the first two movies and know that the books are always said to be better but just couldn't get time to pick them up and begin. Mary Sarah brought Anne to life beautifully, and I love that I don't have to set aside time to visit Avonlea. I can listen as I'm cooking, cleaning, driving or nodding off to sleep.
With the lady's voice it was hard for me to imagine things that happened I like the book though. It was ok overall
I read this book along with my daughter as it was an assignment for her from school. The story was timeless, as evidenced by the enduring popularity of the series. It's beautiful writing was only enhanced by a lovely reading that made every character distinct. Anne's enthusiasm and sense of wonder,, Matthews taciturn nature, and every other character was clear and delightful.
I suppose being a 50+ male reader I'm not really the target audience. The story was cute and engaging. Good morals. Although I suspect that modern children might not relate as much as previous generations.
I don't know how I missed reading this book as a child. What a great little book. Now I'm wondering what other classics I may have missed!
I noticed myself smiling while listening to this sweet book.
The whole book is just so uplifting, the character Anne is a bundle of joy, throwing herself fully into everything in her life whether it be happiness or despair.
Yes, I really enjoyed this writing, even though the main character is a young girl who uses lots of big words and sometimes sounds so grown-up, it also feels so real.
No I haven't, at first I wasn't sure about the narrator but I guess I learned to love her along with the character and have already bought the next in the series, checking that it was Mary Sarah again.
All of Anne's adventures were so uplifting and really made you appreciate things that little bit more. If I every feel down, I know that giving this book a listen will make me feel happy again.
This is a classic that I felt I really should catch-up on and I'm so glad that I did, it is not just a book for children!
