Anne of Green Gables & Anne of Avonlea (Wordsworth Classics) Comment

  1. I read this when I was about ten or eleven, and forgot how much I adored it I ve finally got the whole set of the Anne books, so I sat down to reread this one today It s easy to read, and charming, and touching than I d remembered I came over all sniffly a couple of times And I also had a lot of delighted little giggles.



  2. Rating 4.4A good old children s classic It was nice to read this after being disappointed with my previous read.While reading this book, I always imagined myself as Marilla, while Anne is my niece and nephew, because like Anne, they talk non stop This novel reminds me a lot of Little Prince, where grown ups, maturity, imagination, friendships and customary practice are the subject matters.


  3. I had forgotten how very much I loved Anne Shirley when growing up Rereading all of her stories has brought back so many memories, and I have fallen in love once again with the girl, Anne After reading so many not worth mentioning, crappy, free, kindle downloaded books, this has been such a refreshing change of pace well written, poetical, beautiful, and clean and watching Anne grow up again is such a pleasure.


  4. BEST BOOK EVER And not just for children Seriously, why did I wait so long to read this gem The writing is simply beautiful and the characters believable and real.


  5. I loved this book Oh what a happy heart warming story of Anne Shirley I could not stop reading this book I found this story to be the best that I have read in a long long time It brought joy to my heart and happiness into my day This wonderful little girl changes the lives of Matthew and Marilla Once she arrives at Green Gables there world is filled with endless stories and imaginations from Anne She grows to become a scholar and makes Matthew And Marilla proud The funny things Anne does are war [...]


  6. You know when there s been a book in your childhood that you want everyone in your life to read because this is the book that you internalised so much that once you re read it when your older you actually realise you don t know how much of your personality is your own and how much is a fictional character s There s something about Anne Shirley, her ideas and her personality that makes her a modern character even years after the novel was written.L.M Montgomery wrote Anne with ample enough imagin [...]


  7. Some episodes are laugh out loud funny, others are philosophical and poignant The writing is light and lyrical and only seems dated here and there, but this only adds to the charm Likewise, some of the attitudes are of their time, but the negative ones are often questioned in this context.Can be read and enjoyed by any age and makes a welcome change to the crash bang wallop of most modern books There is a great sense of magic and poetry brought to the smaller happenings in life and the main char [...]


  8. I ve been listening to the Anne books as audiobooks if I m awake in the night I don t remember reading them as a child, but have found them delightful as an adult I love the descriptions of Prince Edward Island definitely now on my wish list to visit and have smiled at the varied characters and the troubles Anne experiences I doubt I d have selected them to read, but they are perfectly suited to listening in the dark, being both interesting and soporific Thank you to librivox for supplying them. [...]


  9. mild spoilers but not enough to mark it so Anne is who I want to be I love her optimism, her sunny disposition, and the way she makes her life around her a dream I love the opportunity readers are given to watch her grow One of my favourite lines is when Marissa asks why she stopped using big words, and Anne says something like she doesn t feel like she needs them any What a big, inconsequential, yet massive character development For full context, you ll have to read the book I love the second b [...]


  10. Rating review only for Anne of Green Gables, have not yet read Anne of Avonlea Best word I can think of for this book is charming It really is The writing is gorgeous, and despite going in with a bit of cynicism and being initially turned off Anne by her incessant yattering, I absolutely fell in love with the characters view spoiler The ending broke my heart as Matthew was a favourite _ hide spoiler I will have to watch Anne With An E the Netflix adaptation ASAP.




  11. I ve been in a childish mood as of late, and I have all these unread children s books so I decided to crack in to them in between chapters of a very long book Anne with an E Shirley is a very interesting character, or as she describes herself a Kindred Spirit , she s clearly affected with ADHD, she has a beautiful imagination, brimming with dreams and most of all ready to enjoy life, not in a jaded fashion, but how it should be enjoyed, she loves every tiny fern, every little flower, even puffed [...]


  12. Marilla and Matthew Curthbert was mistakenly adopted a girl, but they never regret their decision to keep an 11 year old Anne, because she was the best thing that ever happened to Green Gables.Anne Shirley, an outspoken, full of spirits and vivacity orphan girl, who always look for a scope for imagination in everything In spite of her past circumstances, she still could manage to maintain a pure innocence heart, and became a kindred spirit herself She could not feel exactly perfectly happy becau [...]


  13. Even Canada was a pretty awful place to live a hundred years ago The Anne series seems to be one of those children s series that cloaks pretty retrograde morals in a progressive coating Anne is so outspoken and unwittingly rude Watch as she still becomes a model student and devout Christian, and accepts the rigid role in life that s thrust upon her without even thinking of complaining Still, it s easy to see why the first book, at least, has been popular enough to adapt into movies, TV shows, an [...]


  14. Note I have only read the first book, and plan to go back and read the sequels later on I marked it as read for filing purposes Anne of Green Gables is an overall feel good book I just love the timid pace of the book after reading a challenging novel before There was the perfect sprinkle of light hearted humor that really reveals the personality of the characters involved I found myself falling in love with each person, even Josie Pye, I have to admit The characters developed so realistically an [...]


  15. I read these two stories one after the other in an omnibus book I wish I d have read this book sooner because I really enjoyed both stories Anne was such a great character, and I wish I lived in Avonlea because it s sounds delightful The writing was beautiful and so descriptive that I felt like I was actually there Each character is very well written and even the background characters are very fleshed out, which I really liked because there are so many authors who don t tell you much about the b [...]


  16. i have loved all of the anne of green gables books, but each of the books in the series has been a favorite at different times of my life my fav when i was in college was anne of the island my fav when i was writing nathan on his mission was anne of windy poplars my fav when i was engaged was rilla of ingleside you get the point i love anne i think i am anne nathan just read this over my shoulder and stated that i must not be anne, because i am not canadian good point hubs, good point.


  17. When a friend of mine gave me this book, i actually expected it to be just normal but to my surprise it was extra ordinary i could not return the book back instead i bought it from my friend.Anne Shirley possesses every of my character traits which people consider to be wicked but i just cant see the spark of imagination among serious minded people i found great comfort in Anne and i would do anything to get the complete series of it.


  18. This a book that I first read in 2nd grade and then closely followed y 95% of anything else she wrote I I have read this so many times its ahrd to count I adore Anne and Gilbert and love to relieve there romance and Anne s hijinks over and over I movies are incredible event he third which doesn t follow the books.


  19. Read in May,21 2012.God bless Lucy Maud Montgomery, I simply liked her novel so dearly Anne spelled with an E not only gained Marilla and Matthew s hearts, but she had everyone s too I m not going to waste another blessed minute and start right now reading the second book Looks so promising.Re read in May,11 2015.


  20. This is the book that my best friend introduced me to when we were 11 years old we became close friends after because of our love of this book, the character and her antics and we love Anne s romance with Gilbert Blytheterwards, we became a bonafide Anne addict and read the entire series, until Anne of Ingleside.


  21. I love this story I originally saw the four hour miniseries then ofcourse had to read the book This is one of those books I recommend to all young girls because it leaves you with a warm feeling inside.


  22. A lovely book about a little orphan girl She is adopted by Matthew an Marilla Cuthbert who rather wanted a boy as a help to Matthew But Anne soon wins their hearts with her wit and incurable romantic spirit.I enjoyed every page of the book.


  23. Anne of green gables was the better of the 2 stories I d give it like a 3.8 By the end of Anne of Avonlea I was speed reading through some of the flowery paragraphs Too much of a good thing maybe.


  24. Quite different from the miniseries which I always loved growing up , but still pretty good Somehow the miniseries captured some magic I didn t feel as much in these novels, but I think I ll continue reading the series to find it.


  25. An absolutely charming series with a story and characters so rich they feel as if they were a part of my childhood Augmenting this book with the movie starring Megan Fellows and Colleen Dewhurst is the icing on the cake For years I was in love with Gilbert Blythe.


  26. Having seen the series absolutely years ago, I felt it was time to read the actual books So, I did and I wasn t disappointed either A very enjoyable book I bought the two in one version which I will definitely will read again
