Publisher's Summary

The Cuthberts had decided to adopt an orphan - a nice sturdy boy to help with the farm chores. The orphanage sent a girl instead - a mischievous, talkative redhead who'd be no use at all. She would just have to go back. But ever since Anne arrived, no one could imagine Green Gables without her.

A sad disappointment

Having first been introduced to Anne of Green Gables by the TV series starring Megan Follows, I was very excited to listen to this version of the book. While Megan Follows does a good job narrating the story, this version is very poorly abridged and produced. This was a real disappointment and I strongly recommend avoiding this version. I gave it one star because Audible requires at least one but I would say that this one deserves zero stars.

Poor audio quality

I love the story and I love Megan Follows. Disappointed with the quality of the recording.

I Wish This was Unabridged...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. It was almost like one of those autobiography read by that person. I just wish it had been the complete book. Unfortunately so much of the story is left out in this edition.

Would you ever listen to anything by L. M. Montgomery again?

Yes I have all of the Anne and Avonlea books that are available already.

What does Megan Follows bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Megan Follows (who played Anne in the Sullivan Entertainment movies) reading Anne of Green Gables was like Anne herself telling the story.

Was Anne of Green Gables worth the listening time?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Megan Follows needs to do the full Unabridged version of all of the Anne books.

1984 Megan Follows Is Anne Shirley. Period.

Would you consider the audio edition of Anne of Green Gables to be better than the print version?

Two different apples.

What other book might you compare Anne of Green Gables to and why?

None.

What does Megan Follows bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Megan Follows has morphed in my mind to be Anne Shirley. Having her narrate this abridged version in 85' was the right voice at the right time.

Who was the most memorable character of Anne of Green Gables and why?

Anne Shirley.

Excellent story but sound quality is not good

Well done but bad audio. Excellent narrator. But the sound quality is very low. Needs to be remastered or redone

ABRIDGED

This book is labeled as unabridged however it is in fact abridged. So disappointing. Megan fellows is perfect and I wish you would record a better quality and fully unabridged version.

Brings back memories

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The story is a classic and Megan Follows does every bit as outstanding a job as she did in the movie. Alas the sound quality is dreadful and they music overlay overwhelms the narration. Also the recording repeats itself in at least one spot. Great story and performance, piss poor engineering.

anne of green gables

way too fast! I downlaoded this so my girls could enjoy the story while on the way to Tahoe. The narrator talked so fast, it was not enjoyable. We gave up.

Choose this because Megan Follows is the narrator

The audio quality isn't great since this is an older recording. Love Megan Follows narration.

Cassette Recording, Still lovely

This is the same recording I listened to on cassette when I was a kid so the quality and the music at the end of the chapters didn't bother me. It sounds like a cassette, not very crisp and I had to slow the pace down to 90% but Meagan Follows is amazing and I couldn't imagine hearing the story from anyone other than her.

This is not the full audiobook!

What would have made Anne of Green Gables better?

Megan Fellows's is the perfect person to narrate this book! But unfortunately audible's copy of Anne of Green Gables skips huge chunks from L.M. Montgomery's novel! Very disappointing.

What didn’t you like about Megan Follows’s performance?

Loved it!

Anne of Green Gables never goes out of fashion, she is the perfect flawed heroine!
