    I don t often give books five stars and as I neared the end of this book, I gave some thought to how many stars this book deserved I ve read the Anne of Green Gables series once before over twenty years ago In spite of the amount of time that has elapsed, I clearly recall reading the last book in the series very slowly and thinking to myself, I will be so sad to not be able to read about Anne any When I picked up this book a few days ago to re read it, I found within a few chapters that it was like seeing an old friend Anne was even delightful than I recalled, since I now have daughters who share her scope for imagination, her penchant for large words and her zest for life Reading about Anne s appreciation for life s loveliness made me appreciate my daughters and long to live in the moment myself So, I decided that a book that feels like an old friend after twenty years deserves five stars.Anne Shirley must be one of the most delightful characters ever written, largely because she is far from perfect She makes mistakes, as we all do, but her mistakes are much funnier than my own feel and she makes me see the value in learning from each of them, laughing at them and moving on Like my middle daughter, there is no lukewarm with Anne I love that she approaches life enthusiastically, despite have spent a decade belonging to no one.I also like that Anne talks straightforwardly about wanting, seeking and building friendships Even now, I a...

    I never read Anne s story when I was younger, so when I heard that Rachel McAdams was narrating the first in the series I knew I had to give it a go I m a sucker for a celebrity narrated audiobook if you haven t checked out Maggie Gyllenhaal s reading of The Bell Jar, do that now.It s wonderful to read a story that, for the most part, is extremely uplifting There s hardly anything truly terrible that happens in this story, and that s quite refreshing Granted, it is a children s novel and from the early 1900 s so it has that moralistic quality to i...

    Excitement hung around Anne like a garment, shone in her eyes, kindled in every feature Oh, what sheer pleasure it was to spend just a moment in time with Anne and her delightful companions in this little classic What pure joy to catch a glimpse of the beauty of Prince Edward Island I am likely one of the last persons on earth well, on Goodreads at least to read this novel What in the world was I waiting for As a child and adolescent, I wrongly assumed that this book would be of no interest to me I wasn t a girly girl and surely this was written for that sort of reader, right Wrong By the time I was old enough to know better, I thought I had grown too mature in years to pick this one up Wrong again The sort of reader that this does appeal to however one who appreciates exquisite writing and vibrant characters, one who relishes being steeped in another time and place, and one who enjoys an all out fantastic story In short, this book should satisfy nearly everyone You can t help but fall in love with Anne She is the friend you have always longed for, the daughter that will bring that much needed light in your life, that student that any teacher would be proud to instruct She is funny, imaginative, bright, and a regular chatterbox She laments about her red hair, apologizes for being a great trial to Marilla, and...

    This story is cute, touching, heart warming, tear jerking In other words, a classic The target audience is definitely not me I would say it would be perfect for a teenage girl living in Canada in the early 1900s That makes sense, because that is exactly what Anne is However, the point of this obvious detail is that sometimes it is fun to read a class...

    October 2018 read with the Retro Reads group This is a classic 1908 novel about an orphan girl who comes to the Prince Edward Island home of aging brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert mistakenly they wanted a boy to help Matthew with chores After an initial kerfuffle about sending Anne back to the orphanage and getting the boy they had intended, hearts are softened, and Anne proceeds to upend their lives in what turns out to be very good ways for everyone involved Anne is eleven years old when she first comes to Green Gables, and the novel follows her adventures over the next five years It s kind of an episodic novel, with memorable characters Anne is a chatterbox with a vivid imagination, passionate and sincere Marilla and Matthew are drawn so well that I feel like I really know them though it s disconcerting to realize that Matthew in the book has a long beard My mind s eye refuses to see him that way, LOL That miniseries has co opted my imagination And then there s Gilbert, who lives to regret some initial teasing about Anne s hair.The novel has a healthy sense of humor that sets it apart from most literature of this period and keeps it from being too sticky sw...
