Overview

Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert are in for a big surprise. They are waiting for an orphan boy to help with the work at Green Gables - but a skinny, red-haired girl turns up instead. Feisty and full of spirit, Anne Shirley charms her way into the Cuthberts' affection with her vivid imagination and constant chatter. It's not long before Anne finds herself in trouble, but soon it becomes impossible for the Cuthberts to imagine life without 'their' Anne - and for the people of Avonlea to recall what it was like before this wildly creative little girl whirled into town. As inspiring today as it was in 1908, this beautiful centenary edition of "Anne of Green Gables" remains a testament to the powers of hope, friendship and imagination.

Lovely story

Written by Daparoye from Orange, CA on July 12th, 2007

  • Book Rating: 3/5

I enjoyed this story very much. The reader was good but seemed to be reading to a VERY young audience. This was read as a children's story ... which it is. Anne is a wonderful character and one I remember fondly as a child. It was a little stroll back to my youth. I will continue to listen to Anne's life and smile all the while. This is a nice change from the nitty gritty books I usually listen to.
