But things begin to change as Emily makes several new friends. There is Teddy, who does marvelous drawings; Perry, who has sailed all over the world with his father and has never been to school; and Ilse, a tomboy with a blazing temper. Amazingly, Emily finds New Moon Farm beautiful and fascinating. With new friends and adventures, Emily might someday think of herself as Emily of New Moon.

"Not as refined as Anne but Emily's interesting"
Yes, while it's easy to see Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables, Avonlee… ) Rebecca of Sunnybrook as classics. This to should be amoung them. Somehow not as refined as the Anne books (same author) similarities in setting and conditions but just a little more disjointed. Subtly darker than Rebecca of Sunnybrook but engaging characters. Best read after the Anne series as it's easier to get a feel for the era and settings.
Anne of Greengables, same settings, similar situations just a little darker. In a larger view it's probably closer to Rebecca of Sunnybrook. Casually cruel aunts, matching intolerance and sense off entitlement.
No I haven't . She does a good job with few mistakes. It seems it would ne difficult to voice a historical as well as regional story. But she does a good job.
Difficult question, as an adult male it's harder to respond to the emotions of a young turn of the century girl. But Emily did have an emotional depth that was understandable .
While I have a preference for the Anne books, I still feel these Emily books (3 in all) are, just as Rebecca of Sunnybrook and Pollyanna must reads. I found more of an emotional connection with Anne amd Becky than Emily hut a stronger historical picture with Emil..
"What a difference tone makes"
I've always found Emily Starr to be the most interesting and enjoyable of L M Montgomery's heroines, and her story remains my favorite. This narrator, unfortunately, sounds distinctly bored, and has decided that Emily speaks in a constant, plaintive whine. A shame.
"Loved the book, this narrator stinks"
UGH! I can't even get through the first chapter with this droning, mechanical voiced narrator. This is awful.
