Still love these books

I read the Anne books when I was a girl and I loved them. Almost 20 years later I've now read them again and I still love them. Not only do I love them still but I can appriciate the writing more today. It is beautiful and romantic but also oh so funny and heartbreaking, in a well balanced way.
These books give me that achy feeling that Anne somtimes describes, when something is so momentary and beautiful it hurts a little.

Don't be put off by the sample's audio quality.

I listened to the samples of all the different recordings of his book, and I liked this narrator best, but I almost didn't get it because the audio wasn't great. When I got it, however, the audio quality was great. Barbara Caruso does a great job.

Good story, well narrated

Any additional comments?

The narrator does a really good job on all of the characters.
The story was better than "Anne of Windy Poplars" and as good as the more widely known first three books in the series.

A dreamy home for Anne

This was a delight -- the only drawback seemed to be the mispronunciation of several words; of particular annoyance was any reference to Gog & Magog, as the narrator kept pronouncing Magog as "Mā-gog" rather than "Mah-gog"... other than that distraction, was extremely pleased.

Great narrator, but rough cutoff points

The narrator read the voices well and I have always enjoyed Barbara Caruso, but instead of allowing listeners to follow the real chapters, the book was divided into 45 minute sections. Since I started and stopped quite often, it was never easy to find my place. What made it more difficult was how the voice was chopped off before properly finishing the sentence, which made it even more confusing, especially if I was distracted or fell asleep. For the price, that was disappointing.

one of my faves in this series

This is such a good book! I've been a fan of Montgomery for years, but for some reason have never made it through this whole series. they're all delightful, but this one is extra special. I laughed harder and cried more over this one than the rest. It's very dear.

A great treasure!

This has been one of the most moving books in the series. I have laughed and sobbed listening to this book. I see it all so clearly and easily. This book is one that I'm sure will always be very special to my heart.
