Anne is All Grown Up and even better than before! Mar 18, 2008
I agree with "veggiechiliqueen"! Anne of Windy Poplars is one of the Best! IF you love Anne Shirley, you will love this book. I enjoy Anne for herself and "who she is" the most. Gilbert is just a side attraction, A GOOD side, but just a side. This is one of my favorites because of how much good she does and the special way she does it!
Fun, but not the best Sep 8, 2007
Anne of Windy Poplars is the fourth installment of the Anne of Green Gables series. It is mostly set in a city called Summerside. Anne has left Redmond College to begin a job as principal of Summerside High School. She ends up staying in a place called "Windy Poplars" with two widows and an old maid. Throughout the story Anne has to face winning the affections of the Pringle family, solving marital problems between her friends, and helping a little girl named Elizabeth find laughter in the world. As with the rest of the series, this book is a thrilling read, with sorrows and triumphs. I feel that this book is missing something that the others have (it is probably the absence of Gilbert, who rarely shows up in this book), but it is fun and exciting all the same. I would recommend this book to all fans of Anne of Green Gables, as well as to those who are simply looking for laughter and magic in their life.
OK, but not Great. Jan 22, 2007
This book is definately better than most other fiction books I've read, but its one of my least favorite in the Anne series. The Gilbert-Anne romance and Avonlea truly made the first books magical, that was slightly lacking here. I will read it again and again, but only after all the other books.
Too Much of a Great Thing Nov 24, 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
Pretty good! Sep 3, 2006
The beginning is kind of boring, and so I was thinking if I should stop reading this book. But I didn't and kept going on. It got more interesting. Anne meets many new people, and faces many adventures. It's a great book after all. It feels like you are really there with her.
