In this continuation of the story of Anne Shirley, Anne leaves Green Gables and her work as a teacher in Avonlea to pursue her original dream (which she gave up in Anne of Green Gables) of taking further education at Redmond College in Nova Scotia. Gilbert Blythe and Charlie Sloane enroll as well, as does Anne's friend from Queen's Academy, Priscilla Grant. During her first week of school, Anne befriends Philippa Gordon, a beautiful girl whose frivolous ways charm her.

The Anne series is my one of my favorites, and this book is my favorite in the series. The reason I give this 4 stars is the narrator. I just didn't like her voice, the guy characters' voices didn't seem right. I don't know... maybe it's just me but I just didn't like Colleen Winton's voice. :/

Little Women follows the lives of four sisters - Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March - and is loosely based on the author's childhood experiences with her three sisters. The book was an immediate commercial and critical success. Little Women has three major themes: domesticity, work, and true love. It has been made into innumerable adaptations for stage and screen and is an American classic.

GREAT book! Beautifully written and great plot. Has many life lessons and is hilarious! I would recommend this book to anyone! I think you could enjoy this book at age 7 just as well as you would at age 80! Took me a while to finish it but left me with one thing in my head: THAT WAS AMAZING!!!!

Great story, little kids might find it a little over their heads though. I'd say that 9 or 10 would be a good age. But it just depends on the kid to be honest! :D

I loved hearing the adventures of Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy! Totally want the next book!!! And can I just say that Victoria Mcgee's narration was awesome? Cause it was! All the voices were amazing and I think that it is totally worth it to get this book!

I love all the stories! Beverly Clearly is a favorite in my house. The only reason I give the overall four stars is because I didn't like some of the people who read it. Also the music, I could hardly hear them speak when it played. But, overall I loved it.
If your a Beverly Clearly fan then I DEFINITELY recommend this!
