Anne of Green Gables | [Lucy Maude Montgomery]

Anne of Green Gables

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.

    Story
    "Fabulous narration of a classic"
    If you could sum up Anne of Green Gables in three words, what would they be?

    Charming, seductive, classic


    What did you like best about this story?

    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!


    Have you listened to any of Mary Sarah’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "A Delightful Classic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Anne of Green Gables is timeless and welcoming to girls of all ages. I wish I had read this as a girl because I would have wanted Anne to be my bosom friend! As an adult, I would recommend this story to those young and old.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Anne brings the story to live with her colorful descriptions and amusing mischief. Her awe and marvel of the world around her is what makes her such a wonderful character.


    Which character – as performed by Mary Sarah – was your favorite?

    Mary Sarah does a superb job as narrator of Anne of Green Gables. I particularly enjoyed her reading of Anne's long-winded tangents. Anne has a love for talking and Mary Sarah captures that love brilliantly.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was moved by the love Marilla and Matthew gave Anne despite the mixup when they requested a boy. We see them form into a wonderful family and experience the joys and hardships they face together.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to listening to the other Anne books in the series.
