The third book of L. M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables series finds its heroine, Anne Shirley, attending college and falling in love.
A loveable, headstrong orphan in the first book, Anne is a teacher in Avonlea, Nova Scotia, when she enrolls in Redmond College in Halifax. She’s followed by her lifelong friend Gilbert Blythe and Philippa, a charming girl from Anne’s hometown. It’s at college that Anne experiences the death of an old friend and the romantic attention of Roy Gardner. Anne’s ideas about love and friendship are tested and altered by these experiences.
Barbara Caruso’s inviting tone, well-paced narrative, and subtle characterizations make her performance in Anne of the Island stand out.

I want to be Anne!

What made the experience of listening to Anne of the Island the most enjoyable?

Anne is honest, funny and likeable. Her stories are full of fun, wit and at times, tears.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Anne is my favourite character because she never stops growing in personality.

Which character – as performed by Barbara Caruso – was your favourite?

I think Barbar's portrayal of Phil was brilliant and just as I imagined her to sound.

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

I think when Anne discovered the man of her dreams was someone close to home, I almost wept.

Any additional comments?

Read the series of books in order to see the characters develop as they grow up together from children to adults.

Good

It was good, but the narrator was a bit annoying. Anne of green gables is my favorite book, but I like all the Anne spelled with an e books😀

Enjoyable, except for wanton animal slaughter

I love Anne. However, I was shocked about how many ways animals were killed or attempted to be killed. Chloroforming cats. Drowning kittens. Hanging dogs.

The book is still enjoyable, but be aware of these acts if you are sensitive as I am.
