Publisher's Summary

In the first sequel to Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Montgomery's feisty red-headed heroine is now 16 and a school teacher in the small village of Avonlea on Prince Edward Island. Although older, she isn't necessarily wiser, and she hasn't outgrown her mischievous antics. She learns how complicated life can be when she takes two new orphans at Green Gables under her wings, meddles in someone else's love life, and learns about romance herself when she encounters the "odd behavior" of a very handsome man, Gilbert Blythe.

    Story
    "Prince Edward Islanders Southern-style?"

    I used to love the "Anne" books by L.M. Montgomery as a child. Recently, I got the itch to reread them. Having thoroughly enjoyed "Anne of Green Gables [Radio Theatre]" by Focus on the Family publishing, I was interested in continuing with an audiobook reread. Out of the narrators for "Anne of Avonlea", based on the sample, I thought that Shelly Frasier had the most pleasant reading voice, most distinct character voices, and the clearest and cleanest recording. Would I try another book from Shelly Frasier? Maybe. I felt that the characters sounded very faux-Southern, which was initially amusing but grated towards the latter half of the book. I might try a different book by Shelly Frasier, but would hesitate with an Avonlea book.

    "Timeless and Sweet"

    Anne of Avonlea is a wonderful timelessly sweet story. It took me back to childhood memories of reading these books and dreaming about finding friends who are kindred spirits and a boy as wonderful as Gilbert. I would recommend this book for anyone that yearns for a simpler time and a heartwarming story.

    Story
    "Narration drove me crazy"

    My daughter tends to listen to audiobooks over and over. This is a great story, but I found this narrator to be exceptionally irritating - especially her imitation of children's voices. I did find her narration in the subsequent book, Anne of the Island much better - maybe because there were fewer kids voices.

    "nice"

    its a nice hearing for both children and adults, I enjoy lucy maud works, they are peacefull and calm and interesting as well, she is a good writer and has managed to creat good charachters
    anne is my favorite
    however the lady who read the story was not quite fit for the job
    the one who read anne of green gables was better suited

    "audio quality very poor"

    Thou I like the story and the author, the audio quality was very poor. There were long pauses between chapters (making you feel like it was a book on tape and they were waiting for you to turn the page!) and it sounded like it was taped on a cassette tape versus digial quality. I am repurchasing the title by another narrator other than Shelly Fraser. Do not waste your credits.

    "Memory lane..."

    Anne Shirley's adventures aren't quite as spectacular in this second book of the series, but I've always enjoyed watching Anne grow up. Listening to this again after having read it for the first time so long ago, brought back a lot of fun memories.

    "Simple and sweet"

    If you're in the mood for a novel whose characters are so sweet and caring it's sickening, then this is probably it. It's not deep, motivating, or moving. It's just simple and summery. If you have nothing else to do and you've been listening to too much Dostoevsky, this is the book to bring you back from the brink of darkness.
