Megan Follows is the best

Yes, it's disappointing that this is an abridged version of the book and the sound quality is pretty poor (being, I believe, cassette recordings when first released). But Megan Follows is a brilliant narrator of these books and I enjoyed it immensely nonetheless. Please please please could Megan Follows be recorded reading the whole series of books unabridged? I'd buy them all!

Loved hearing this read by Megan Followes!

I'm a big Anne fan from way back and it was even better to hear it read by Megan Followes. I think she does an amazing job reading Davy's voice and all the others in this book as well. Although I do prefer Unabridged books on the whole, this one is great! I've listened to this one many times and it's I turn to when I want to be comforted!

Anne of the Island

As Amethysta said, Megan Follows is an amazing performer/reader in this delightful third book in the irrepressible and irresistible Anne series. Though this edition happens to be abridged, it is truly incredible; it's no wonder Megan won the Award for best actress for Anne of Green Gables! Anne is now growing up and facing decisions and obstacles in her life that she hadn't expected to find, but with the poise and grace that only Anne carries she succeeds and her honest innocence remains true to the end.

A Delight

A lovely tale of kinder, gentler times. So very soul soothing and uplifting, just what's needed in the dark days of the summer of 2020.

good narration, cut out half the book

I love the "Anne" series and have read these books multiple times. I was super excited to see it was narrated by Meghan Fellows. unfortunately it seems they've cut out half the book. The cats at Patty's place? Gone. Roy Gardener's sister? Gone. I'm extremely disappointed.

I have enjoyed all 3 books! background music a little loud during some times of the story, but I loved it!
