"Fifty years after her death, her work surfaces regularly in new guises....There's no cool modern cynicism here; these stories are decidedly old-fashioned and determinedly upbeat." ( Calgary Herald)

Anne of the island. Romance and School.
After I read Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea I decided to read on. So I started reading Anne of the island.
Anne goes to College. She and friends go and live in a dream house of Anne’s after living in a boring boarding school. She has a great time.
Gilbert proposes and she refuses. Gilbert and her imagined Ideal Man are nothing alike. Such romance and drama like this is great to listen. When you want to know what is going to happen and I walk to school, the faster I walk the more tension builds up.
Anne is an original unique girl. She expects everything to turn out how she imagines it. And then again she meets her handsome boy. Anne can finally feel like all of her dreams have come true.
Anne, Anne, Anne…. Why did your imagination lead you to this. Jealousy. What will she do? Will she be too jealous to say yes to such a Man?
I would like to say that you can’t read this book without reading the previous books first. I do recommend, as it is like being in an Imagined life of romance, drama, laughter and sadness. But as previously, Anne hasn’t changed a thing she still has many interesting problems and funny events.
I enjoy reading books through Audible and sometimes follow it throw on the kindle. I am going to keep on reading this way.

The narrator is very annoying. This book takes place in Canada. Why does the narrator put on a SOUTHERN accent when trying to do a local dialect?!?!?! Her voice often sounds as if she is overacting and is overly earnest or wispy. She also mispronounces words. I wish I had chosen another version. L.M.Montgomery's books deserve better.

Love the book, not the reader.
I love all the Anne books, and this one especially as we really see Anne leaving her childhood behind and growing into a woman. I had looked forward to a reader's interpretation of Anne in this book - ambitious, spirited and as charming as ever.
The reader gave sweet voices to characters like Diane, but to Anne she gave the most horrible rasp! She made her sound like Milhouse from the Simpsons. When the line says, "said Anne gaily" the reader reads it like Anne said it so sadly! The most charitable way I can say it is that I do not think this reader "gets" Anne.
Most shocking is that this made it all the way through production and to sale without someone involved saying something! It is not that the reader does not have a pleasant voice. Her normal narration was just fine. But it's like there is a voice that Anne SHOULD have in everyone's head...and she just did the complete opposite!
