When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables, Prince Edward Island, send for a boy orphan to help them out at the farm, they are in no way prepared for the error that will change their lives. The mistake takes the shape of Anne Shirley, a redheaded 11-year-old girl who can talk anyone under the table. Fortunately, her sunny nature and quirky imagination quickly win over her reluctant foster parents. Anne's feisty spirit soon draws many friends - and much trouble - her way.
Montgomery wrote the novel in the twilight of the day, sitting at her window and overlooking the fields of Cavendish. Since publication, Anne of Green Gables has sold more than 50 million copies.

What did you like most about Anne of Green Gables?

The whole book is just so uplifting, the character Anne is a bundle of joy, throwing herself fully into everything in her life whether it be happiness or despair.

Would you be willing to try another book from Lucy Maude Montgomery? Why or why not?

Yes, I really enjoyed this writing, even though the main character is a young girl who uses lots of big words and sometimes sounds so grown-up, it also feels so real.

Have you listened to any of Mary Sarah’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No I haven't, at first I wasn't sure about the narrator but I guess I learned to love her along with the character and have already bought the next in the series, checking that it was Mary Sarah again.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

All of Anne's adventures were so uplifting and really made you appreciate things that little bit more. If I every feel down, I know that giving this book a listen will make me feel happy again.

Any additional comments?

This is a classic that I felt I really should catch-up on and I'm so glad that I did, it is not just a book for children!

A welcome tonic😀

I somehow managed to miss out on some of the essential reads of childhood and so I am trying to make up for it. I loved every minute of this gentle, beautifully read tale and I will be revisiting it.

Even this old man love Anne

I see that virtually all of the reviews of this book are (understandably) from women. I, on the other hand, am a 68 year old, male, retired academic & scientist who typically reads sci fi & fantasy these days. I bought this audiobook because a) we'll soon be going on a cruise to Prince Edward Island (the setting of the story) and b) Audiobooks was offering it for 95 cents. I expected to hate it. The language, particularly of the heroine, is flowery & archaic and the character of Anne is loquacious to the point being manic. I fully expected to want to strangle her by chapter 3. Much to my surprise, I loved this book. The author & narrator are equally responsible for my enjoyment. I can't imagine anyone doing Anne better than Mary Sarah. I'm still not certain why I loved it so much but I did. Maybe it's the fact that the writing is so much better & more interesting than in most of the sci fi & fantasy I've been reading. Maybe it's the use of words with which I was unfamiliar (or which I hear only infrequently) because I love words & pride myself on my vocabulary. Maybe it's the simple coming of age story set in a quaint past in a culture that may or may not have ever really existed. Whatever the reason, I loved it and have already bought volume 2. For another 95 cents, how could I not?

A Pleasure No Matter Your Age

This has to be one of the best bargains I've ever found on Audible. I was searching around for a low stress summer listen and came upon this beauty for just 95 cents! I usually shy away from reading books written for children--but in this case I am really glad I overlooked the genre. The narration was excellent and the story was sweetly engaging. Somehow I missed out on reading this series as a child. Better late than never. It was great.
