Overview A young orphan struggles to adjust to the new experience of a permanent home on Prince Edward Island
Publishers Description As soon as Anne Shirley arrived at the snug, & #160; & #160; white farmhouse called Green Gables, she knew she& #160; & #160; wanted to stay forever... but would the Cuthberts& #160; & #160; send her back to the orphanage? Anne knows she's not& #160; & #160; what they expected -- a skinny girl with decidedly& #160; & #160; red hair and a temper to match. If only she could& #160; & #160; convince them to let her stay, she'd try very hard& #160; & #160; not to keep rushing headlong into scrapes or blurt& #160; & #160; out the very first thing she had to say. Anne was& #160; & #160; not like anybody else, everyone at Green Gables& #160; & #160; agreed; she was special -- a girl with an enormous& #160; & #160; imagination. This orphan girl dreamed of the day& #160; & #160; when she could call herself Anne of Green Gables.

My favorite red headed snippet Feb 4, 2007
It would be impossible to tell how many times I have read this book but I must say that I have never gotten through it without laughing out loud as well as shedding a few tears.
Anne is possibly the most charming and adorable character that I have ever read about. I love her dreamy mind, her unconditional love, her sometimes uncontrollable imagination, and her positivity.
Too good to leave on the shelf! Jan 29, 2007
"Anne of Green Gables" is one of those books that make you appreciate the little things in life. The beauty and gentleness of the words of this book are just so inspiring. It is deffinately my favorite in the series of 8. The first chapter or two is a bit slow, but don't let that stop you! I was 12 when I first read it, and let me tell you, I have fallen in love with everything Anne and beyond! Don't put this one aside, trust me.
For Everyone With An Imagination Jan 27, 2007
I would give Anne of Green Gables, by Lucy Maud Montgomery 4 stars because it is a perfect book for anyone, but tends to drag in some places. The book begins with Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert who want to adopt an orphan boy to help out on their farm. To their surprise, when Matthew goes to pick up this boy from the railway station, they get Anne Shirley, an orphan girl with a vivid imagination. After a few days, Matthew convinces his sister Marilla to raise Anne so long as Matthew never goes easy on the skinny redhead of eleven years. Little did they know, they were investing in the trip of a lifetime. While growing up in Avonlea, nothing excites her more than "kindred spirits," which she seems to find around every corner. Since there is nothing terribly exciting happening in Avonlea, Anne makes her own adventures. She renames places with her boundless imagination, such as The Lake of Shining Waters and The White Way of Delight. Anne spends many of her adventures with her bosom friend, Diana Barry, who has decidedly strict parents and a big heart. Anne becomes passionate about school and excels in her class with only one challenger-Gilbert Blythe, who Anne has hated since her first day of school. In Anne's words, it will give you "thills." If you enjoyed reading of the maturing girls in Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott, or the imaginative worlds in The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis, then you will enjoy reading this classic. I am a seventh grader in North Carolina who enjoys reading when I have the chance.
A perfect companion on a dreary day! Jan 26, 2007
Whenever life gets me down, I read this book...it has all the elements that make you feel inspired to live your life to the fullest & attain your dreams. The story of the orphan Anne Shirley is a story for the ages, and yes, definitely a story to be read again & again, and shared with family & friends. It was after reading this as a child that i determined the perfect place to live would be on Prince Edward Island, Canada:)Read this and watch the Anne Of Green Gables DVD [Megan Fellowes does a great job as Anne].
A Review by Lyric Jan 23, 2007
Anne is an imaginitive , dreamy , 11 year old girl who lived in the 1860's on a farm called Green Gables. Anne faces many problems during her teenage life. Her parents die and eventually she leaves to Green Gables.She also has mistakes. One time,she accidentally baked linament into a cake!Although she was trouble , she was good at other things.Once she saved a little girl's life! Anne is a great scholar and tries to win an award,do you think she can? I like this book because it helps me understand that changes lead to bigger things in life. I recommend this book to young readers who have had big changes.
