Audible Editor Reviews

Many know of the young Anne of Green Gables. However, many fewer know that Montgomery continued Anne's saga through her adult years. This work, the final installment, concerns Anne and Gilber's youngest child, daughter Rilla. It is the summer of 1914, and Rilla is a typically frivolous adolescent girl of 15. However, as the war engulfs her world, she becomes a woman, who must embrace triumphs and tragedies. Barbara Caruso gives a winsome performance in keeping with the heroine. Caruso's voice is clear and her delivery soft. She performs each character with energy and great expression, affecting a separate voice for each.

Publisher's Summary

With translations into 15 languages, renowned author L.M. Montgomery penned some 500 short stories and poems as well as the classic Anne of Green Gables novels.

Rilla Blythe, youngest daughter of Anne, is almost 15 in 1914. As her brothers and friends prepare to go off to battle, the irrepressible Rilla realizes that she will be changed forever and the world will never be the same.

Narrator Barbara Caruso presents a poignant delivery of this family classic.

    Story
    "An Ode to Canadian Patriotic Fervor"

    Barbara Caruso does a wonderful job, as always, reading this final book of the Anne of Green Gables series. This book is my least favorite of them all. There are some sweet little stories woven in, but the absolute overloaded war sentiment really takes away from the plot. I can only imagine that Ms. Montgomery would have been lynched if she had not written such a syrupy account of wartime in P.E.I., if the accounts in this book at all reflected the sentiments of the general populace!

    "Best book Iv'e heard"

    I loved this book I've listened to it at least 10 times. I can nearly say it word for word. I think the narrator really understands the people in the book

    Story
    "great insight into world war I"
    What made the experience of listening to Rilla of Ingleside the most enjoyable?

    I had listened to all of the Anne stories in order. This was a nice continuation of the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I especially liked the insight into the world war 1 conflict. since this was written so close to the time of the war, I can trust that the responses were true to what real people went through during that time.


    What about Barbara Caruso’s performance did you like?

    She did a nice job of capturing the personalities in the story and adding to their interest.

    "Wonderful"

    Wonderful
    L.M. Montgomery is second to none. Barbara Caruso is the very best narrator, I will buy a book just because she is reading.

    "Delightful Rendition"

    L.M. Montgomery's "Rilla of Ingleside" was always one of my favorite books growing up, and it is just as delightful to rediscover it now. Barbara Caruso's voice is flexible and captures the different 'voices' in the novel very well. There is some serious (wartime) subject matter, and she carries this off very well in addition to the lighter, humorous material. This audiobook is a very enjoyable listen for any Anne fans.

    "Book good, narrator not so much"

    This used to be one of my favourite entires in the Anne of Green Gables series. I still enjoyed the story of young Rilla Blythe growing up during World War 1, although some of the pro-war sentiments now bother me. However I found that the narrator's vocal affectations and mannerisms sometimes got in the way, calling attention to themselves and, thus, detracting from the story.
