what a delightful story and the narration was beautiful. I've listened to many of the classics and I have to say this is one of my favorites.
"I've loved this story since I was a child"
My first time meeting Anne of Green Gables was as a very young girl in the form of a condensed and beautifully illustrated storybook. I then read much of the series as a teen.
The opportunity to revisit L.M.Montgomery's book was a pleasant surprise when it was chosen as my bookclubs monthly read. And I am so happy it did. I enjoyed the story as much, maybe even more than in the years before.
Susie Berneis did a wonderful job. It was narrated and performed beautifully. I both laughed and cried while listening.
I really loved this book next time when I'm not crunching I'll listen to it slower.
Great Narration by Susie Berneis. I loved the voices she used for the characters. All the kids ages 4-11 enjoyed this book. I most especially.
"Wonderful! Much better than the movie!"
I loved this book so much. I only saw the video of this story as a young person and while the movie was entertaining, it impressed me as being only about a sassy little orphan with a knack for getting herself in trouble and vexing everyone else in the process. The movie left out the character building lessons Anne learned with each calamity, and the overarching hand of providence that worked to see her through. Every young girl should find this book on her school's required reading list.
"Anne of Green Gables"
At the top. It's truly an old favorite.
