Publisher's Summary

When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables send for a boy orphan to help them out at their farm, they mistakenly get Anne Shirley, a feisty, independent but warm-hearted 11-year-old girl. Fortunately her sunny nature and quirky imagination win the hearts of her reluctant foster parents and everyone in the community. But not a day goes by without some memorable adventure or prank in the tragicomedy of her life. Early on she accidentally dyes her "cursed" red hair green. Later, in an effort to impress a neighbor, she bakes a cake, but with liniment instead of vanilla.

Lucy wrote that Anne is an extension of herself and represents the independent, "new" woman of the emerging 20th century. Individualistic, resourceful, and of a great humanitarian heart, she remains a great role model for girls and women today.

    Story
    "A wonderful re read after over 50 years"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it was delightful, enjoyed every minute, wanted the story to go on and on.<br/>The reader performance was perfect.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The look back in time but yet the wisdom and human longings still apply today. Good laugh at the statement about politicians, nothing has changed in over 100 years.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Difficult to pick out a favorite but the opening scenes set the tone, I knew I would enjoy the book


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Throughout the book Anne's love for her new family was lovely.

    Story
    "A Favorite loved by All"
    If you could sum up Anne of Green Gables in three words, what would they be?

    Still a favorite


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a story I have read many times over the years from childhood to "great grandmotherhood". Being the only girl with four big brothers, I was always being put to a challenge and would seldom back down regardless of the outcome. Thus, it is easy to relate to Anne. Shelly Frasier is a marvelous reader and adapting her voice to each character.


    Which character – as performed by Shelly Frasier – was your favorite?

    I think it was Anne although the couple who took her in were true heroines.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely!


    Any additional comments?

    Keep these old classics alive and in print so all generations may enjoy them for years to come.

    "Wonderful Retelling!"
    Where does Anne of Green Gables rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This classic is one for all ages. It takes the reader back to a simpler time and tells a story of self-discovery and the union of an orphan with an older, quiet couple and the enrichment they bring to each other in a beautifully touching way. Not to be missed!

    Story
    "Pure sunshine!"

    I liked this book as a child but loved it even more as an adult! Timeless and endearing, it was pure sunshine to hear. Listening to this soothed nerves I hadn't realized were frazzled.

    It's not often you can go back to a book you liked from long ago and find it's even better than you remember. Montgomery transports you completely to another age and time, and you bring back nothing but smiles! Recommended for red heads, romantics, curmudgeons, and readers of all shapes and sizes.

    The narrator is perfect. I wouldn't want to hear the rest of Anne's tales from another reader, so I'll seek out all of Shelley Frasier's versions I can find!

    Great book. Great reader. An annual listen for me, and a recurring listen for our 9 year old who has been listening to this story for more than 2 years. Both of us give it high recommendations.

    "Smile from Ear to Ear"

    I remember reading this book when I was a child and smiling from ear to ear as I read. Anne does not disappoint I laughed and smiled with Anne through her ups and downs as I recently listened as an adult. This book is a must listen.

    "Made me fall in love with Anne over again."

    The performance was adorable, the story was cute as all get out and I remembered why I liked it. It helps me to be happy about the small things and to be thankful for the loves and life I have.

    "A MUST HAVE!!!"

    LOVED THIS AUDIOBOOK!!! I did love the Anne of Green Gable series as a child and have listened to all of the audiobooks available and can say without a doubt, the Shelly Frasier narration is the absolute best! Her voice brings into the story like none of the others does. Susan O'Malley's is good too, but again, this Shelly Frasier narration is the best of them all!

    "Couldn't put it down"

    I originally started reading this book as an assignment, but once I started I couldn't put it down. This is an interesting well written book. I look forward to reading the other Anne of ... books as a liesure read and not an assignment.

    "A walk down memory lane!"

    I hadn't read Anne of Green Gables for quite a few years, and it was a real pleasure to meet Anne, with an 'e' again. The reader was very good and I would highly recommend this book to all those who enjoyed reading about Anne in years gone by or to those who haven't had the pleasure!!!

    I only wish that Audible had the entire series! I would love to start listening to Anne of Avonlea
