4.0 out of 5 stars Charming Happy ever after, 9 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anne of the Island Complete Text (Charming Classics) (Kindle Edition)
If like me you read all the Anne of Green Gables books as a child, dont be afraid to read them again.
If anything I think I have enjoyed reading them more as an adult.
Anne of the Island is the 3rd book in the series, Anne is all grown up now and is off to College. She is just as ambitous as ever, and needs to work hard to win prizes in order to stay in College.
I thought perhaps that now Anne was an adult, the story would take on a boring tone, however I was so pleased that even though Anne is all grown up, she is still as wistful and charming as the girl at Green Gables.
Anne of the Island is also a romance and introduces competition for Gilbert in the form of Roy Gardner. Of course as you expect everything ends happily ever after (as everything does for Anne)but the telling is beautiful.
Even though I am sure that L M Montgomery's everyday life was in actual fact nothing like Anne's. It is still wonderful to be able to read these stories and get a glimpse of what life was like for women 100+ years ago. Even if it is a glimpse through rose tinted glasses, its still worth a peep.
