Lucy Maud Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables is one of the best loved Canadian books of all time. Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, middle-aged brother & sister, live together at Green Gables, their farm on Prince Edward Island. They decide to adopt a boy from an orphanage in Nova Scotia to help out on the farm. Through a series of mishaps, the child that arrives at their door is not a boy, but Anne Shirley, a precocious 11 year old girl! Anne is bright, quick, and eager to please, but dissatisfied with her name, her pale countenance dotted with freckles, and her long braids of red hair. Anne takes much joy in life, and adapts quickly, thriving in the environment of Prince Edward Island.

"A wonderful gem of a story with great naration."
Despite being a "middle-aged" woman, I enjoyed this delightful tale of Anne and her her unfailing optimism.
I had never read Anne of Green Gables and since I was going to the area about which it was written decided to. Great story read by an engaging narrator.
This is my favorite narrator-she is expressive and has a lovely voice. I sampled all of the versions before choosing this one. I already loved the book but listening to it was a pleasure.
Really like it especially at the end when she makes up with Gilbert (but the rest of the story is really nice to) good for ages nine to 13
"Narrator leaves me wantong"
No, great book.
When the reader did Anne's voice, it was annoying. I would have preferred her to just read in her normal voice rather than use the phony child voice.
"excellent read of a classic"
the vocal inflections of the reader were impeccable and the story is an unmatched tale of coming of age
"Ok but cut the music!"
Good narator but music between chapters or anywhere else drives me crazy. Its short and hasn't kept me from listening to this book over and over but I still hate the blooming music. I love the book itself though.
I do not know why, but some stories I may find good when I was very young, are very boring now. I do not like it unless you want to die from sugar.
Brings back so many childhood memories. Such a lovely story and beautifully narrated. A great classic.
A great listen except for the super-annoying musical interludes between chapters which drove me nuts!
