    "Must buy for any Anne of Green Gables fan"

    The narrator did an excellent job of capturing the personalities of the characters in this novel. Audio was clear and the voice fluctuation was anything but short of superb. You are easily transported to Avonlea and can visualize all of Anne’s friends and escapades. The chapters ran smoothly from one to another without the annoying pauses that can distraught from the story line. I wish this narrator did all of the Anne Series.

    Story
    "Narrator spoiled the experience"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    No. The book deserves its place as a classic in children's literature.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Burton’s performances?

    No. She too frequently paused in mid-sentence (even where there wouldn't be a comma) and restarted as if she were beginning a new sentence. It affected the continuity and understanding of the story.
    Also, her voice for Anne was way too high-toned, fast and childish for an 11 year old, and the tempo for Matthew was exaggerated to make him sound slow-witted.

    "Passionate to the core"

    I love this story! I read the whole series as a child and they were all my favourite. Now with reacquainting myself again with Anne, I realise that my love for this story hasn't gone. I hope to share this with my daughter and hope that she too appreciates the story for all it can give.
    The narrator is obviously just as passionate. She's reading from her heart and soul. Truly something I could listen to over and over again.

    "Don't get this one"

    I was very disappointed when i started listening to this book. I have read the book for myself often as i have grown up, but this narrator is not fun to listen to. She tries to use different voices for the different characters and it is really anoying. I had to stop listening to this one before i started to dislike the book itself.

    "Horrible forward ruins the ending"
    What would have made Anne of Green Gables better?

    There is a TEN MINUTE forward by the reader that talks about the ending of the book. I do NOT care about the reader's opinion or experience of the book, especially for ten long minutes. She put it in chapter one so you couldn't skip it. SO annoying. It made me angry from the get go and made me hate this reader.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Burton’s performances?

    Absolutely NOT.

    "Excellent!!!"
    What did you love best about Anne of Green Gables?

    This is one of my most favorite stories since my childhood and still I do love it in many many ways! I love how Anne enjoys her life with all her heart in any situation. She makes lots of mistakes and along with them she meets various kinds of people and grows letting her true beautiful self shine. It's been so enjoyable and encouraging whenever I read. I have my book almost from thirty years ago. It's been my treasure. I used to listen to this recording after I purchased it when commuting, but now I'm reading the book playing this recording. It is amazing!!! I should have done this before. I understand details far better and I enjoy it multiple times! Excellent performance of the narrator!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love Anne, and all the people around her. In our life we always encounter many kinds of people.It is vividly written how our life goes unexpectedly and excitingly with those people we meet...


    What about Kate Burton’s performance did you like?

    Oh she did an awesome job!!! I love watching this film, but she never made me disappointed being too different from that beautiful fim. She performed everyone's voice very decently and well. I love love this, and would like to look for other work of her reading especially for Anne series.


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks to the author for the great story and to the narrator for an amazing performance!

    "Enchanting"

    Anne was always a favourtite of my mothers, and then mine when I was a teenager, but returning to her in my 30's I found the book as delightful as ever. It is such a well written story of life in a small canadian village, both witty and moving by turns. I actually laughed out loud on the tube. The book is read beautifully and the forword very interesting. I would recommend it is listened to by ALL 11 year old girls. They will love it.

    "Fabulous for girls of all ages!"

    A lovely enchanting story, I'm in my 30s and enjoy it as much now as when I first read it at 9! This is a great reading of it that I can thoroughly recommend and I will be looking for more by Kate Burton! Try it if you want an easy listen that is heart-warming but not too sickly sweet. For girls of all ages (8+).
