    I don t often give books five stars and as I neared the end of this book, I gave some thought to how many stars this book deserved I ve read the Anne of Green Gables series once before over twenty years ago In spite of the amount of time that has elapsed, I clearly recall reading the last book in the series very slowly and thinking to myself, I will be so sad to not be able to read about Anne any When I picked up this book a few days ago to re read it, I found within a few chapters th I don t often give books five stars and as I neared the end of this book, I gave some thought to how many stars this book deserved I ve read the Anne of Green Gables series once before over twenty years ago In spite of the amount of time that has elapsed, I clearly recall reading the last book in the series very slowly and thinking to myself, I will be so sad to not be able to read about Anne any When I picked up this book a few days ago to re read it, I found within a few chapters that it was like seeing an old friend Anne was evendelightful than I recalled, since I now have daughters who share her scope for imagination, her penchant for large words and her zest for life Reading about Anne s appreciation for life s loveliness made me appreciate my daughters and long to livein the moment myself So, I decided that a book that feels like an old friend after twenty years deserves five stars.Anne Shirley must be one of the most delightful characters ever written, largely because she is far from perfect She makes mistakes, as we all do, but her mistakes are much funnier than my own feel and she makes me see the value in learning from each of them, laughing at them and moving on Like my middle daughter, there is no lukewarm with Anne I love that she approaches life enthusiastically, despite have spent a decade belonging to no one.I also like that Anne talks straightforwardly about wanting, seeking and building friendships Even now, I am hesitant, awkward and scattershot at building relationships I may meet someone who seems a kindred spirit, but lack the time or, let s be honest, sheer boldness to approach them and seek to build a friendship We see Anne seek and build relationships not only upon her arrival in Avonlea, but during her time at Queens.One reasons I re read this book was because two friends recommended it for it s fluency in writing dialogue Unlike Little Women, which I attempted to read for the writing, this book did not disappoint The dialogue sounds exactly like each character would sound and it flows smoothly from narration to dialogue and back In fact, I m baffled that Little Women routinely makes top 100 lists while Anne of Green Gables is nowhere to be found on the lists of must read classics Unlike the Little Women characters who are archetypes rather than three dimensional characters, Anne is a bold a female character who refuses to be categorized That s exactly why I love her and love this book

    actual image of me thinking about this book actual full review of what i thought about this book do you review a book that transcends books Do you ever love a book so much that it doesn t feel like a book You re so immersed and reading is so effortless that you don t feel like you re reading at all The characters are real enough to be people, and their problems and happinesses feel like they re happening to you That was me with this book actual image of me thinking about this book actual full review of what i thought about this book do you review a book that transcends books Do you ever love a book so much that it doesn t feel like a book You re so immersed and reading is so effortless that you don t feel like you re reading at all The characters are real enough to be people, and their problems and happinesses feel like they re happening to you That was me with this book.Which is all well and good until it comes down to reviewing it Basically what I m saying is I m at a loss for words I m saying I have nothing TO say This is just too damn good.I didn t read this as a kid, or for many years after I didn t think I d be interested I had a copy for years with no intention of picking it up, because I am shallow as hell and only bought a copy in the first place because it s pretty In my defense look HOW pretty Honestly, I can t remember why I decided to read it in the first place.But I am very, very, VERY glad I did.I love Anne so much I love Green Gables I love Diana, I love Matthew and Marilla, later on I love Gilbert although I don t really understand how people love him from this book alone Not much to see After reading this, I was obligated to chase the high of the reading experience by picking up the next two installments as quickly as possible, and they were just as good Mostly But still an unparalleled level of good.I guess what I m trying to carry across here is that somehow this hundred year old children s classic about an orphan girl moving to a rural island in Canada was one of the most unputdownable books I ve ever read.And also the writing is as pretty as the cover.Bottom line I want to live in this book, please and thank you fun fact joy exists as a concrete object, and it s called Anne of Green Gables.THIS BOOK IS PURE JOY.review to come

    The beloved classic 1908 novel about an orphan girl who mistakenly comes to the Prince Edward Island home of aging brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, who just wanted an orphan boy to help Matthew with chores After an initial kerfuffle about sending Anne back to the orphanage and getting the boy they had intended, hearts are softened, and Anne proceeds to upend their lives in what turns out to be very good ways for everyone involved.Anne is eleven years old when she first comes The beloved classic 1908 novel about an orphan girl who mistakenly comes to the Prince Edward Island home of aging brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, who just wanted an orphan boy to help Matthew with chores After an initial kerfuffle about sending Anne back to the orphanage and getting the boy they had intended, hearts are softened, and Anne proceeds to upend their lives in what turns out to be very good ways for everyone involved.Anne is eleven years old when she first comes to Green Gables, and the novel follows her adventures over the next five years It s kind of an episodic novel, with memorable characters Anne is a chatterbox with a tremendously vivid imagination, passionate and sincere Marilla and Matthew are drawn so well that I feel like I really know them though it s disconcerting to realize that Matthew in the book has a long beard My mind s eye refuses to see him that way, LOL The miniseries has co opted my imagination And then there s Anne s classmate Gilbert, who lives to regret some initial teasing about Anne s hair.This novel has a healthy sense of humor that sets it apart from most literature of this period and keeps it from being too sticky sweet It s really so charming, with great insights into human nature, and lovely descriptions of P.E.I It s a feel good story and a total comfort read Anne of Green Gables spawned a slew of sequels and five other related novels, not to mention any number of film and TV adaptations Not all of the sequels are great reads like this one they start getting progressivelysappy but I do recommend the first four books in this series if you liked this one

    This story is cute, touching, heart warming, tear jerking In other words, a classic The target audience is definitely not me I would say it would be perfect for a teenage girl living in Canada in the early 1900s That makes sense, because that is exactly what Anne is However, the point of this obvious detail is that sometimes it is fun to read a classic and try to put your mind in the mindset of who it was written for at the time A couple of the storylines seemed silly or to not make sense, This story is cute, touching, heart warming, tear jerking In other words, a classic The target audience is definitely not me I would say it would be perfect for a teenage girl living in Canada in the early 1900s That makes sense, because that is exactly what Anne is However, the point of this obvious detail is that sometimes it is fun to read a classic and try to put your mind in the mindset of who it was written for at the time A couple of the storylines seemed silly or to not make sense, but if I stopped and changed my mindset, it would click.A bit of a history lesson combined with a well written story If you haven t read this before, give it a shot and maybe you will find your inner early 1900s Canadian teenager

    I never read Anne s story when I was younger, so when I heard that Rachel McAdams was narrating the first in the series I knew I had to give it a go I m a sucker for a celebrity narrated audiobook if you haven t checked out Maggie Gyllenhaal s reading of The Bell Jar, do that now.It s wonderful to read a story that, for the most part, is extremely uplifting There s hardly anything truly terrible that happens in this story, and that s quite refreshing Granted, it is a children s novel and I never read Anne s story when I was younger, so when I heard that Rachel McAdams was narrating the first in the series I knew I had to give it a go I m a sucker for a celebrity narrated audiobook if you haven t checked out Maggie Gyllenhaal s reading of The Bell Jar, do that now.It s wonderful to read a story that, for the most part, is extremely uplifting There s hardly anything truly terrible that happens in this story, and that s quite refreshing Granted, it is a children s novel and from the early 1900 s so it has that moralistic quality to it wherein each incident Anne undergoes resolves itself with a lesson learned But it was delightful, and Anne s optimism is contagious Rachel McAdams also does a great job at encapsulating that attitude I felt like I could hear her smile.If, like me, you ve never given Anne s story a chance, I can highly recommend the audiobook route And I m definitely going to continue listening to this series, especially when I m in need of a pick me up
