Publisher's Summary

Everyone who falls in love with irrepressible, red-haired Anne Shirley longs to know more of her life and adventures. Now, on the very eve of her wedding to Dr. Gilbert Blythe, we can come back into Anne's world in Anne's House of Dreams. Anne is about to leave Green Gables forever and travel with her cherished Gilbert to the misty purple shore of Four Winds Harbor. There is the perfect house with a brook cutting through the garden and a fireplace in the parlor. Can all Anne's dreams come true here? Perhaps, but secrets and mysteries whistle in the breezes.

Anne is soon investigating the ghostly tragedy haunting Leslie Moore, the golden-haired beauty next door, and finding a husband for the man-hating Miss Cornelia, as this volume in the Anne of Green Gables series captures all our hearts once again.

Great narrator, the best 'Anne' book yet

Susan O'Malley is a wonderful narrator, as she narrates books the way they should be considering they were written in the early 1900's. I wouldn't want to hear anyone else narrate one of these wonderful books. She is very talented in knowing just how to narrate the 'Anne' stories.
Don't be put off by the age of these stories or by thinking they are for children. I only realized reading this story that these books weren't written for children but for adults who remember what it was to be young. They bring back the old values of the past that we wish hadn't disappeared. The stories have brought tears to my eyes and made me laugh out loud.
Start from the beginning and let Anne be a part of your life!

But what about Anne?

After the previous book I read, this was the perfect pallet cleanser – but still I’m disappointed.

Anne is but a mere secondary character in her own story, and Gilbert is far far far out in the periphery… it’s such a shame.

I would have preferred to read more about her marriage, her wedding night, her pregnancy, her relationship with Gilbert – her LIFE!

Sadly it felt like a repeat of previous books, meaning lots of description about the world around her and lots of detail regarding someone ELSE’S adventures.

My favorite book in the Anne of Green Gables series and one of my favorite narrators.

I have read this particular volume in the Anne of Green Gables series several upon several times and each time I discover something new. Susan O’Mally is one of my absolute favorite narrators for the Anne series. I always find that she brings the characters too light and she gets their voices and inflections just right. I wish she would narrate more Anne books like Anne of Windy Poplars, Rainbow Valley, etc.

Great book, poor narrator

This book about the beginning of Anne's married life is much more fun for a grown reader than the first couple books in the series. Lots to appreciate on many levels. But ... the narrator is one of the worst I have ever heard. She has a very monotonous voice with no sense of rhythm, often puts too much space between words, and doesn't differentiate characters well or capture the character as written by the author.

Wonderful

Anne’s House of Dreams is a literary masterpiece, as all of L.M. Montgomery’s books are. The characters and dialogue are pure magic. The narration of this edition is absolutely fabulous, as well. With Susan O’Malley’s excellent reading, each character takes on a life of his or her own, and you truly feel the emotions and beauty of the story.

Robot

It sounded very much like a robot in the beginning but started to have more of a voice to it. Really good book and interested in finishing the series. 👍🏻

slow reader

Where does Anne's House of Dreams rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The book was good, but the reader was frustrating--slow, and didn't play the part of the actors in voice changes.

Would you be willing to try another one of Susan O'Malley’s performances?

Probably not.

classic virtue

Reading or re-reading this great classic of young ladies' lit is like being wrapped in a sun-warmed, fresh-washed quilt.

Un-listenable

Is that a word? Because it’s the perfect description for this narration. No phrasing. No consistent voicing. No feel for the character. I think it’s a computer reading it. This narration is the antithesis of Anne Shirley and her friends.

Such hearrwarming story. I love all of the Anne books but this is one if those that takes her outside of Avonlea and puts new challanges in her path.
