Synopsis:

At sixteen Anne is grown up…almost. Her gray eyes shine like evening stars, but her red hair is still as peppery as her temper. In the years since she arrived at Green Gables as a freckle-faced orphan, she has earned the love of the people of Avonlea and a reputation for getting into scrapes. But when Anne begins her job a the new schoolteacher, the real test of her character begins. Along with teaching the three Rs, she is learning how complicated life can be when she meddles in someone else’s romance, finds two orphans at Green Gables, and wonders about the strange behaviour of the very handsome Gilbert Blythe. As Anne enters womanhood, her adventures touch the heart and the funny bone.

Anne of Green Gables (Anne of Green Gables #1), by L. M. Montgomery

Publish Date: June 1908 (audiobook recorded in June 2006)
Published by: Librivox.org (audiobook)
Narrated by: Karen Savage
Pages: 314 (approx. 8 1/2 hours)
Genre: MG Fiction/Classics
My Rating: ★★★★★ (5 out of 5 stars)


Synopsis:

“She’ll have to go back.” Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert had decided to adopt an orphan. They wanted a nice sturdy boy to help Matthew with the farm chores. The orphanage sent a girl instead – a mischievous, talkative redhead who the Cuthberts thought would be no use at all. But as soon as Anne arrived at the snug, white farmhouse called Green Gables, she knew she wanted to stay forever. And the longer Anne stayed, the harder it was for anyone to imagine Green Gables without her.


My Review:

Now, I know for sure that at some point in my childhood I tried reading this book, because I definitely remembered a lot of the first few chapters (up to about the incident with Diana and the sherry), but not the details. Continue reading “Book Review | ANNE OF GREEN GABLES, by L. M. Montgomery”
