More About L. M. Montgomery
Lucy Maud Montgomery was born in Clifton, Prince Edward Island, in 1874. Educated at Prince Edward College, Charlottetown, and Dalhousie University, she embarked on a career in teaching. From 1898 until 1911 she took care of her maternal grandmother in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, and during this time wrote many poems and stories for Canadian and American magazines. Montgomery's first novel, Anne of Green Gables, met with immediate critical and popular acclaim, and its success, both national and international, led to seven sequels.

Anne of Avonlea Jan 5, 2008
Can Anne make it as a teacher? In Anne of Avonlea the second book in the series by L M Montgomery Anne is an orphan growing up. She has gone through school and hopes to become a teacher. The only problem is she is teaching her old schoolmates. Anne and her friend Diana go through numerous adventures. My favorite is when Anne accidentally sells her neighbors cow thinking that it is her own. The book is a quick read and takes place on Prince Edwards Island a long time ago. I enjoyed how the book tells about how Anne and her neighbor, Mr.Harrison, have a growing friendship. Anne goes over every now and then despite Mr.Harrison's rude bird, Ginger. The part that I disliked the most was Dora. There is no point in having her there she doesn't do anything she is too shy. The author is really into details and is good at expressing the emotions of various characters. The genre of the book i think is realistic fiction because everything about the book seems real because it could all actually happen.Anyone interested in history would really enjoy this book because it is good at explaining how things were done back then.
An Extraordinary Beginning, but a Rather Monotonous End Nov 25, 2006
The first three installments in the "Anne of Green Gables" series have to some of the most wonderful, enchanting, all-around greatest books I have ever read. L.M Montgomery has done an absolutely splendid job bringing to life the red-headed girl with a fiery temper to match, but the farther I progressed into the series, the more disappointed I became. For me, the series became monotonous and depressing; the war kills Anne's beloved child, and I cannot help but despair in the numerous times Anne is mentioned with streaks of gray hair, and wrinkles in her face. This is not the lively girl of Avonlea I have come to so dearly love. So, my advice to you would be to read the first three books, and the first part of the 5th, for the end of the series should not overshadow its timeless, an
Anne of Green Gables the Ups and Downs May 17, 2006
Anne of Green Gables was an amazing story. The way Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote makes you really knw the characters,and you feel what the characters are feeling .Along with this we have the great description of the beautiful province of Prince Edward Island. You can almost feel the wind in your hair and smell the ocean. you can almost see the wonderous white Way of Delight that Lucy Maud Montgomery described so clearly. This book take s you through many exciting adventures with Anne ,the poor orphan girl who absolutely hates her looks but always has a way to imagine them differently. She had traveled from home to home when finally she comes to mathew and Marilla. Anne's wide imagination takes her through many adventures. She causes a lot of mischeif which really shakes the people of Avonlea. Anne goes from strange new girl to the girl who the people of Avonlea admire. This makes the book fun and makes you want to read more. the one thing I don't like about this book is the sad ending. this book touched my heart and I believe it will touch yours too.
A great book!!!!! Feb 8, 2006
What do you get when you combine a redheaded girl, a firey temper, and a wonderful imagination? Anne Shirley, from L.M. Montgomery's book, Anne of Green Gables! It's a great book set in the 1880's, in a little Canadian town called Avonlea. Anne gets into many problems, like when a boy teased her, and she in turn took her slate and hit him over the head with it, or the time when she accidentally intoxicated her best friend Diana at a tea party. All in all, it's a great book, because of the lively friendly character, Anne. If you like using your imagination, but it sometimes gets you in trouble, you should read this book!
Anne of Green Gables Apr 26, 2005
"I hate you! I hate you - I hate you!" "How dare you call me skinny and ugly? How dare you say I'm freckled and red-headed? You are a rude, impolite, unfeeling woman!" said Anne Shirley to Mrs. Rachel Lynd, the town's busybody, one day in a village called Avonlea.
Anne is an imaginative, overly dramatic girl of eleven, who has just been adopted by Marilla Cuthbert, an old lonely woman, and her kind brother, Mathew Cuthbert. Anne of Green Gables is set on Prince Edward's Island in Canada.
I enjoyed the book because of the humour tied in with the story, and how well I got to know the characters because of the wonderful character descriptions. Overall, I would highly recommend this book as both a gift idea and for reading yourself!
