Narrator for Anne is a little stiff

What did you love best about Anne of Green Gables?

I love Anne of Green Gables. The story never grows old even after the fourth time.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Anne of Green Gables?

The tender moments between Anne and Matthew and the budding romance between Anne and Gilbert, of course, are memorable. Anne's exuberant personality is most outstanding.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Victoria McGee?

Victoria doesn't quite capture the spirit of Anne. She's a little stiff for Anne but does a better job with Murilla.

Narration taints this beautiful story

Such a beautiful story but the narration is so monotone and without substance. I recommend this story but I would suggest getting the one Barbara Corusso narrates. She can bring the story of Anne to life

Victoria McGee

Victoria is one of the best performers I've heard within the Anne series. She has a wonderfully pleasant voice for the reading of Anne of Green Gables. I think she is the best performer I have from all the Anne book I have. I wish she did more performances for the Anne series. I will always love the story as well. I loved it before ever reading the books because of Megan Follows performance in the movie series. The blessings of a little waif of a girl turned beautiful and smart and loving and open always warms my heart. C'est très magnifique livre.🇨🇦🇫🇷

Stiff stilted voice artist

Would you listen to Anne of Green Gables again? Why?

I plan to listen to the whole series. It is very old fashioned and charming even as it<br/>is filled with overly wordy and cliche description. That is part of the fun. And the characters<br/>Are interesting. Also the historic setting and way of life is delightful.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoyed the heroine. She was lively and reflective. Her actual dialogue bothe external and internal was captivating. The author's own narrative through out the story was oddly<br/>Cliche and overwrought in contrast.

How could the performance have been better?

The voice artist was very stiff as if biting each word. And there was not a great deal<br/>Of artistry in variety of voice characters.

Bad Narrating

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Robots who want to be amused by listening to a human who is trying to sound like a robot.

Would you be willing to try another book from Lucy Maude Montgomery? Why or why not?

nope. I do not like her writing style.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator was HORRIBLE. She sounded like she was attempting to imitate an electronic phone voice.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I could not get past the irritation of the sound of the narrator's voice.
