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