Publisher's Summary

Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables is one of the best loved Canadian books of all time. Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, middle-aged brother & sister, live together at Green Gables, their farm on Prince Edward Island. They decide to adopt a boy from an orphanage in Nova Scotia to help out on the farm. Through a series of mishaps, the child that arrives at their door is not a boy, but Anne Shirley, a precocious 11 year old girl! Anne is bright, quick, and eager to please, but dissatisfied with her name, her pale countenance dotted with freckles, and her long braids of red hair. Anne takes much joy in life, and adapts quickly, thriving in the environment of Prince Edward Island.

A wonderful gem of a story with great naration.

Despite being a "middle-aged" woman, I enjoyed this delightful tale of Anne and her her unfailing optimism.

excellent narrator

This is my favorite narrator-she is expressive and has a lovely voice. I sampled all of the versions before choosing this one. I already loved the book but listening to it was a pleasure.

Thoroughly enjoyable

I had never read Anne of Green Gables and since I was going to the area about which it was written decided to. Great story read by an engaging narrator.

I wish I could meet Anne

This is simply one of the kindest, brightest, life and truth affirming books I have read for quite a long time. I sincerely recommend it to all the kids and grown ups out there, especially if you feel somewhat down. All is well with the world if you are eager to see the right and the Light!!!

Narrator leaves me wantong

Is there anything you would change about this book?

No, great book.

How could the performance have been better?

When the reader did Anne's voice, it was annoying. I would have preferred her to just read in her normal voice rather than use the phony child voice.

Re-enchanted With a Childhood Favorite

It's been several decades since I read this book so, on a whim, I picked up this audio edition for a re-read.

I was captivated once again by the little redheaded orphan who found her way into the hearts of lonely Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert and made her place in the little Prince Edward Island town of Avonlea. Marilla remains a favorite, I found, while smiling over the many dialogues between she and Anne. I giggled at the school scenes as Anne established her place among the other children. I sighed over her childhood fancies and friendship with Diana. And yep, cried once again over dear Matthew.

The story lost none of it's charm this many years later.

Laural Merlington was a new to me narrator. I easily fell in tune with her storytelling and voice for Anne and the others. I thought she did a lovely job with such a cast of characters and range of emotions.

All in all, this was a rather delightful revisit and now I want to listen to the rest of the series if I can find them.

An any-ager absolute favorite!

This has bee one of my favorite books/audible tracks for many years. Montgomery is a wonderful writer and you will absolutely fall in love with Anne as she gets into hilarious scrapes, is ludicrously romantic, and is delightfully sincere. My eyes are still drying as we speak from the immensely satisfying and touching ending.
