Item description for Anne of Green Gables (Modern Library Classics) by Lucy Maud Montgomery & Jack Zipes...

Anne, an eleven-year-old orphan, is sent by mistake to live with a lonely, middle-aged brother and sister on a Prince Edward Island farm and proceeds to make an indelible impression on everyone around her.

Publishers Description
"Matthew had taken the scrawny little hand awkwardly in his; then and there he decided what to do. He could not tell this child with the glowing eyes that there had been a mistake. . . ."
When eleven-year-old Anne Shirley arrives at Green Gables with nothing but a carpetbag and an overactive imagination, she knows that she has found her home. But first she must convince the Cuthberts to let her stay, even though she isn't the boy they'd hoped for. The loquacious Anne quickly finds her way into their hearts, as she has with generations of readers, and her charming, ingenious adventures in Avonlea, filled with colorful characters and tender escapades, linger forever in our memories.
This Modern Library edition of the first of L. M. Montgomery's beloved and immensely popular Avonlea novels features the restored original text and an Introduction by the noted children's literature scholar Jack Zipes.

Reviews - What do customers think about Anne of Green Gables (Modern Library Classics)?

Rereading Anne as an adult  May 26, 2010
When we decided to read a children's literature novel in book club, I nominated Anne of Green Gables with enthusiasm. Nonetheless, it was with some trepidation that I went back to the book, because the things that moved you as a child sometimes fail to have the same impact later in life. As a young reader I shared Anne's joy and wonder at the world and its beauty, her fear of not being accepted into the family and society, her longing for romance in an ordinary world, her outrage at the unfairness with which youth is treated. Her attempts and shortcomings to live up to moral standards.

As an older reader, these features still touched me. Reading the book later in life I also paid more attention to the older characters: The sadness of Marilla, who has watched her life shrivel way. Matthew's mute inability to make contact with others. They are both of caring and kindhearted people but their lives lack joy.

It is not difficult to figure out why Anne is such an endearing and enduring heroine. She is intense. She loves and hates passionately. Her bosom buddy/kindred spirit relations. Her romanticism, great imagination, and that fact that she is given to flights of fantasy. She revels in sentimental tragedy. Her outspokenness. Her adventurousness. She is hard working, honest, caring and compassionate. She is aware of her own shortcomings. She sees beauty and looks for goodness. She approaches the world with wide-eyed wonder and openness.

Rereading Anne of Green Gables brought me back to the Leslie Anne I used to be.
Irresistable Anne...  May 22, 2010
Lucy Maude Montgomery's beloved classic novel "Anne of Green Gables" passed the centennial of its 1908 publication still in print. Its heroine, the orphan Anne Shirley, continues to captive readers with an irresistable tale of growing up in late 19th century rural Canada.

As the story opens, middle-aged bachelor Matthew Cuthbert and his spinster sister Marilla have decided to take in a young boy from an orphanage to help out on their small farm in the town of Avonlea on Prince Edward Island. Through a twist of fate, the orphanage sends a scrawny eleven year-old girl named Anne, who has red hair, wide eyes and an active imagination. Matthew is immediately taken with her; Marilla takes longer to warm to the little girl but takes pity on her unloved life of poverty and neglect. They decide to keep Anne.

Anne is a handful to raise, full of good intentions and enthusiasm but dreamy and forgetful. Her spirit has survived a tough start in life, thanks to the armor of her imagination and a good heart. In Avondale, she will make friends, put down roots, and become involved in a series of youthful escapades that will delight the reader. At book's end, on the threshold of young adulthood, Anne will come face to face with a need for mature choices.

"Anne of Green Gables" may be a sentimental story, but that tag fails to do justice to the author's craftsmanship. The story authentically captures its time, its place, and its characters in a sympathetic way. We may no longer understand why the young Anne is embarrassed by her bright red hair, but we can feel her embarassment with her. Similarly, the social mores of an isolated 19th Century small town may seem quaint to a 21st Century reader, but the author's supple prose ensures that we appreciate their effect on the characters.

"Anne of Green Gables" is very highly recommended to readers aged nine to ninety with the imagination to appreciate a timeless story. Jack Zipes provides a concise, well-written introduction to Montgomery and to Anne. "Anne of Green Gables" was the first of a series of books written by L.M. Montgomery, featuring our heroine as she moves through her life. It is a strength of this book that it is both complete of itself and a pathway to the series.

Anne of Green Gables  May 17, 2010
"I'll try and do anything and be anything you want, if you'll only keep me." This is what a little orphan girl says in desperation in Lucy M. Montgomery's realistic fiction novel, Anne of Green Gables, in which she hopes to stay at a place she wishes to call home.
The two elderly Cuthbert siblings, Marilla and Matthew, sent word to the orphanage for a boy to help with the outdoor work, but somehow ended up with a girl. The orphan, Anne, is sure she wants to stay at the Cuthberts' house, Green Gables, and is simply delighted when they decide to keep her. The author does a fine job of bringing the imaginative, humorous, wild, and fiery character, Anne, to life in her quest to be as proper and ladylike as possible.
I loved the way Anne worried herself sick over little things - very funny! If anybody is looking for a whimsical, enjoyable book to read, or has ever been thrust into problem after confusing problem, I would recommend reading this book.

An absolute must read  Sep 9, 2009
Last year marked 100 years since this book was published, yet it is as fresh and real today as I'm sure it was back then.

Meet 11 year old Anne - with an "e" - one of the most delightful characters in junior fiction. She is an orphan who through a misunderstanding ends up with Matthew and Marilla (unmarried brother and sister) at Green Gables farm. Anne's imagination brings life and romance to everything she experiences. She is a great talker, and some of the funniest parts of the book are where she uses the most amazing language for her age. While she is very smart, she also has an innocence and clear-eyed awe of the world which enchants those around her.

Village life is beautifully drawn, with its characters and the small events that cause great excitement.

This is an absolute must read book, for children and adults alike.
Exactly what I was looking for  Jan 31, 2009
I ordered a set of five of this book, because several of my fourth grade students had enjoyed an abridged version of Anne of Green Gables, so I decided to set up a literature circle and have them read the true version of the book. Local book stores didn't carry multiple copies of any one edition, so I ordered this edition from this site. Fast delivery, of course, and an edition of the book that meets what my students needed--it even includes book club discussion questions.
