Book Description

3 July 2014 Anne of Green Gables Novel
When Anne Shirley arrives at Green Gables, she surprises everyone: first of all, she's a girl, even though Marilla Cuthbert and her brother Matthew specifically asked for an orphan boy to help around the farm. And second of all, she's not just any girl: she has bright red hair, a wild imagination, and can talk a mile a minute. But she also has a sweet disposition and quick wit, and Anne (with an "e" of course-it's so much more distinguished!) soon finds her place in Avonlea, making a friend in her neighbor Diana Barry and attending the local school, where she spurns the advances of the popular and handsome Gilbert Blythe when he commits the ultimate sin of making fun of her hair. Anne has a temper as fiery as her hair and a knack for finding trouble, and she also has a big heart and a positive attitude that affects everyone she meets. This classic and beloved story makes a wonderful gift and keepsake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful edition of a true classic 19 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love this touching, funny, classic coming of age tale and this is a beautiful edition of LM Montgomery's best novel. The inside cover says it's for readers of 8-12 years of age... but I'm quite a bit older than that and still love it! I bought a copy for a friend too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Childhood Classic 7 May 2014
By Miss Bonnie - Published on Amazon.com
“Isn’t it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive—it’s such an interesting world. It wouldn’t be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There’d be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

Anne of Green Gables was written in 1908 yet the magic of this childhood classic continues to charm readers over 100 years later. Even at 28 years old, Anne managed to charm me. Yes, this is actually my first real read of Anne of Green Gables. I read The Secret Garden and Little House on the Prairie but somehow managed to miss out on the story of Anne, a spunky, chatterbox of a redhead with a knack for getting into trouble. I have no doubt I would have adored her then as I still managed to do so now.

Anne’s story is a simple one but full of heart. She was living in an orphanage for many years before she was finally put on a train and sent to Prince Edward Island where she was requested to assist Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, a brother and sister that lived on a farm in Avonlea. Immediately upon her arrival, she finds out that the duo had actually required a boy and that she wasn’t needed and would be sent back to the orphanage. She becomes determined to win them over so as to not be sent back, and succeed she did. Matthew was instantly enamored by this interesting child but Marilla was much more stubborn.

“It’s been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.”

Anne is clearly the protagonist of the novel, however, I found myself paying a lot of attention to Marilla and the transformation that she undergoes throughout the novel because of Anne’s presence. Anne grows up and matures as any child is expected to do but Marilla is truly the one that changes, and definitely for the best. Marilla is a stern woman who sets out to teach Anne how to be a proper young lady and not to be so fanciful all the time yet it’s that fanciful nature of hers that slowly breaks down Marilla’s harsh demeanor. It’s a gradual breakdown but by the end of the novel she is able to admit to her love of Anne, how proud she is of her and how happy she is that she came into their lives. It was truly touching to not only see the benefit to Anne because Marilla and Matthew chose to take her in but how she in turn equally changed their lives.

Details of Montgomery’s early life reveal that she was the inspiration for her character Anne. Montgomery’s mother died when she was just 21 months old from tuberculosis and her father sent her away to live with her elderly grandparents who resided in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island. Their manner of raising her was strict, such as Marilla’s manner was at first, yet their demeanor never lightened in the time she lived with them. The story of Anne is clearly how Montgomery wished things could have been for her yet despite her difficult childhood, one good thing clearly came out of it for Anne would have never existed without her experiences.
5.0 out of 5 stars The story of a red-haired orphan... 24 Jan 2014
By D. S. Thurlow - Published on Amazon.com
Once upon a time, a young orphan arrived at a train station in Canada's Prince Edward Island. Her shabby clothes and scrawny frame were a sign of past neglect. But the little girl had imagination, and she would change the lives of those around her, beginning with Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, a bachelor farmer and his spinster sister who were expecting a young boy to help out on the farm...

Thus begins "Anne of Green Gables", Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic novel about a young girl coming of age in rural Canada. The young girl, Anne Shirley, will be a challenge to raise. Although she is smart and hardworking, she is easily distracted by her imagination, and she is a bit of a drama queen. Her life will be a series of humorous and heartwarming adventures and misadventures, from her first tea party to her efforts to get rid of her red hair, to her competition at school with a handsome boy and even to her first picnic. Along the way, the reader will learn that Anne, for all her faults, has a positive influence on people, in often unexpected ways.

Anne will make a place for herself in the village of Avonlea, and blossom into an attractive young woman. Time will deliver a chance for college, but life will demand adult choices at a critical moment. Those choices will change Anne's life and those of her new-found family. Very highly recommended.

I bought this for my soon to be eleven year old granddaughter. I have not yet given it to her but since she is an avid reader, I'm sure she will love it. Was received timely and in excellent condition.
