Format: Paperback
I'm not kidding- this book and whole series in fact is great, and one of the best classics of all times. Anne Shirley is now giving up her post as teacher at Avonlea school and attending Redmond College, to puruse her real dreams and ambitions. She takes some of her pals with her, close enough is Priscilla Grant, who shares a mangey old boarding house with her, until Anne's old Queen's friend Stella and exciting new girl Phil come and join her. Stella's relation allows them to use a wonderful, elegant house called Patty's Place for rent, and soon, the girls are having the time of their lives! Anne is also proving popular with the boys too. Billie Andrews, Charlie Sloane and Gilbert Blythe all propose, and are all rejected, until Anne meets Roy Gardner - handsome, and her old description of an ideal man. Will he be her husband, or will she marry her old rival and school comrade Gilbert? Amazing and a must-read before you die book.

Great story, too bad I don't know how it ends, since the last 4 chapters are missing in my book (Puffinc Classics Relaunch). Anyone who is a fan of Anne will love the story, but be sure to buy a different edition (my book probably is not the only one missing the end).

It arrived in time and in absolutely perfect condition, which is saying something because it's a really nice edition. I would recommend to anyone buying this to read the previous 2 books in the Anne series first though.

This continues from the first book in the series, "Anne of Green Gables", and is at least as absorbing as that first one. One delightful book leads on to the next, as the reader follows the life of Anne, growing up on Prince Edward Island, Canada, with its social connections to the folk in Nova Scotia.

Anne of the Island... 22 July 2010
By HMS Warspite - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Anne of the Island" is the excellent third entry in Lucy Maud Montgomery's superb "Anne of Green Gables" series; it is also a decisive moment in red-haired orphan Anne Shirley's long and uncertain romance with childhood rival Gilbert Blythe.

After two years as the Avonlea schoolmarm, 18-year old Anne Shirley is finally off to college, along with former Queens Academy classmates Priscilla Grant, Stella Maynard, Charlie Sloane, and Gilbert Blythe. Redmond College in busy Kingsport will be a big adjustment after her years with foster mother Marilla Cuthbert in the small village of Avonlea on rural Prince Edward Island. Fortunately new and vivacious friend Phillippa Gordon provides a foursome for the girls to rent cozy Patty's Cottage, with its lovely garden, as a home base for studies and an active social life.

The once awkward Anne has grown into an attractive, passionate, and caring young woman who excels at her studies and her many friendships. She will attract lots of male attention and six offers of marriage. Several will be unexpected; most will be unwanted. Two will pose tough choices. Anne's relationship with longtime friend and admirer Gilbert is complicated; although she is attracted to him and cherishes their friendship, she is not prepared to see her childhood chum as a romantic leading man. When Gilbert makes clear he wants more from Anne than her friendship, the uncomfortable Anne makes an anguished refusal of his proposal.

Wealthy, worldly, and charming fellow student Roy Gardner will seem to embody Anne's notion of romance. Warning signs, including Anne's jealousy over Gilbert's social life and her decision to wear a corsage from Gilbert at graduation, are ignored. Roy's not unexpected proposal will present Anne with the potential consequences of her choice: life with a wealthy man who might not a kindred spirit, a lonely spinsterhood of good works, or, perhaps, a second chance with the man who completes her...

"Anne of the Island" is most highly recommended to "Anne of Green Gables" fans as an emotional and moving chapter in her life.

Anne of Redmond College... 19 Dec. 2012
By HMS Warspite - Published on Amazon.com
After two years earning her way as the Avonlea village schoolteacher, Anne Shirley is finally off to college, along with teacher's academy friends Priscilla Grant, Stella Maynard, Charlie Sloane, and Gilbert Blythe. Redmond College in the bustling city of Kingsport is a big adjustment after her years with foster mother Marilla Cuthbert on rural Prince Edward Island. Anne, once the scrawny and imaginative red-haired orphan who came to Green Gables, expects to be equal to the challenge. New friend Phillippa Gordon will make a foursome for the girls to rent a cozy cottage as a home base for studies and an exciting social life.

The once awkward Anne has matured into a slim, attractive, auburn-haired young woman, who finds herself the subject of much male attention and several offers of marriage. For the romantic Anne, most of the proposals are unwelcome and disappointing. But two men will challenge her ideas about marriage. One man is an old and dear chum from Avonlea, who doesn't seem to fit her romantic notions. The other is the living embodiment of her knight in shining armor imaginings. As her friends, one by one, enter into serious relationships, Anne will find herself facing a difficult choice, one that will determine her future happiness.

"Anne of the Island" is the third of Lucy Maud Montgomery's superb "Anne of Green Gables" novels, and easily a priceless piece of romantic comedy and drama. Readers of the earlier novels may think they know Anne's choice, but Montgomery cleverly wrings much laughter, suspense, and insight from the journey; very highly recommended.

I just can't stop reading this series. I originally got the first 2 books and then this one to read to my daughters because there is not a lot of great literature with strong female leads and I want as many positive influences for them as possible. That being said, we got much more than we bargained for. This book was finished within 48 hours of being started it was that good.
