With all of the pluck and charm of its eponymous young hero, Rachel McAdams ( The Notebook, Spotlight, Midnight in Paris) delivers a spectacular reading of Montgomery's beloved bildungsroman. In moments both funny and bittersweet, McAdams' voice is imbued with the spark that has made Anne a much-loved symbol of individualism and cheer for over a century.

This has always been one of my favorite books. Rachel McAdams executed it beautifully! No one could do better and I couldn't pick a more perfect voice for Anne. I could not stop listening.

David Kenyon Webster's memoir is a clear-eyed, emotionally charged chronicle of youth, camaraderie, and the chaos of war. Relying on his own letters home and recollections he penned just after his discharge, Webster gives a firsthand account of life in E Company, 101st Airborne Division, crafting a memoir that resonates with the immediacy of a gripping novel.

If your looking for a sob story from a cowardly boy unlike the rest of the stories you hear about easy company and read by a boring narrator this is your book personally I'll stick to the ones that aren't 16 or so hours of crying none stop
