Publisher's Summary

The free-spirited Anne Shirley has a beautiful way of looking at the world and touching our hearts. In this, the third volume of the Anne of Green Gables series, the irrepressible Anne dreams of the woman she hopes to be when she decides to leave Green Gables and her beloved Prince Edward Island for college. She is eager for new adventure. But now she faces difficult choices involving her secret aspirations to be a writer and her hopes of finding the right person to marry. Homesickness and a grumpy old math professor cause Anne to doubt she should be a Redmond College coed, even though her old friends Gilbert Blythe and Priscilla Grant are there to share the challenges and surprises. And when Anne is the recipient of unexpected marriage proposals from the most unlikely men, she may shock friends and Islanders alike with her decision.

    "Good and Bad"

    Great book! Awesome narrator!! Awful recording quality=( At times I could hear people talking and other sounds in the background of the recording.

    "happy fluff"

    If your life brims with stress and harsh reality, this series will let you slip back to a slower time, filled with rich description and tradition.

    Story
    "Gosh awful production"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This needed a good storyteller, and decent recording. The narrator just didn't get the characters right...I especially missed the twins voices, and Rachael...how could she get it so, so wrong. Sounded like a tape recording with a stretched out tape. I intend to return this, and get a better rendition to this fine story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Anne of course.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She couldn't get the other characters at all...


    What character would you cut from Anne of the Island?

    Only the production crew, and the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    Do Not Get this particular version...really distracting and frankly bad.

    "Terrible recording & monotonous reader"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Loved the story but I couldn't get beyond the background noise in this recording and the dull monotonous reading by the narrator. It was really sub-standard.


    Any additional comments?

    Please get a good narrator like Shelly Frasier to do this audiobook. Her rendition of Book 1 in the series was just superb - the colourful vocal inflections and emotions portrayed in that reading made listening to that audiobook a real joy.

    Story
    "This book brought profound joy to me."

    I never cease to marvel at the genius of Lucy Maud Montgomery. This book, as well as this whole series by her, has brought me so much deep joy and a love for the beauty of life. I'm now in the fifth book in her series, "Anne's House of Dreams," and I continue to absorb the incredible writing of this author. The narrator in this book sounds just like I would imagine Anne's voice to sound. A real winner!
