Æ Anne of Green Gables ↠´ Download by Î L.M. Montgomery October 2018 read with the Retro Reads group This is a classic 1908 novel about an orphan girl who comes to the Prince Edward Island home of aging brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert mistakenly they wanted a boy to help Matthew with chores After an initial kerfuffle about sending Anne back to the orphanage and getting the boy they had intended, hearts are softened, and Anne proceeds to upend their lives in what turns out to be very good ways for everyone involved Anne is eleven years old when she first comes to Green Gables, and the novel follows her adventures over the next five years It s kind of an episodic novel, with memorable characters Anne is a chatterbox with a vivid imagination, passionate and sincere Marilla and Matthew are drawn so well that I feel like I really know them though it s disconcerting to realize that Matthew in the boo I never read Anne s story when I was younger, so when I heard that Rachel McAdams was narrating the first in the series I knew I had to give it a go I m a sucker for a celebrity narrated audiobook if you haven t checked out Maggie Gyllenhaal s reading of The Bell Jar, do that now.
It s wonderful to read a story that, for the most part, is extremely uplifting There s hardly anything truly terrible that happens in this story, and that s quite refreshing Granted, it is a children s novel and from the early 1900 s so it has that moralistic quality to it wherein each incident Anne undergoes resolves itself with a lesson learned But it was delightful, and Anne s optimism is contagious Rachel McAdams also does a great job at encapsulating that attitude I felt like I could hear her smi As Soon As Anne Shirley Arrives At The Snug White Farmhouse Called Green Gables, She Is Sure She Wants To Stay Forever But Will The Cuthberts Send Her Back To To The Orphanage Anne Knows She S Not What They Expected A Skinny Girl With Fiery Red Hair And A Temper To Match If Only She Can Convince Them To Let Her Stay, She Ll Try Very Hard Not To Keep Rushing Headlong Into Scrapes And Blurting Out The First Thing That Comes To Her Mind Anne Is Not Like Anyone Else, The Cuthberts Agree She Is Special A Girl With An Enormous Imagination This Orphan Girl Dreams Of The Day When She Can Call Herself Anne of Green Gables 4.
5 starsAnne, my lovely, I feel restoredMarilla Anne sat down on Marilla s gingham lap, took Marilla s lined face between her hands, and looked gravely and tenderly into Marilla s eyes I m not a bit changed not really I m only just pruned down and branched out The real meback here is just the same It won t make a bit of difference where I go or how much I change outwardly at heart I shall always be your little Anne, who will love you and Matthew and dear Green Gablesand better every day of her lifeFull RTC.
Pre review You know what I ve been wanting to reread these books for probably a decade, and I m still inexplicably battling my ever present book funk, so I m just gonna do it Gilbert Blythe, you were my first and best book boyfriend See you soon I m so glad I ve finally read this book I started reading it as a young girl, and got distracted by the 10 other books I was reading at the time and never finished it Excitement hung around Anne like a garment, shone in her eyes, kindled in every feature Oh, what sheer pleasure it was to spend just a moment in time with Anne and her delightful companions in this little classic What pure joy to catch a glimpse of the beauty of Prince Edward Island I am likely one of the last persons on earth well, on Goodreads at least to read this novel What in the world was I waiting for As a child and adolescent, I wrongly assumed that this book would be of no interest to me I wasn t a girly girl and surely this was written for that sort of reader, right Wrong By the time I was old enough to know better, I thought I had grown too mature in years to pick this one up Wrong again The sort of reader that this does appeal to however one who appreciates exquisite writing and vibrant characters, one who relishes being steeped in another time and p What a lovely little book There were a million excerpts I wanted to add but maybe at a later date Happy Reading Mel This story is cute, touching, heart warming, tear jerking In other words, a classic The target audience is definitely not me I would say it would be perfect for a teenage girl living in Canada in the early 1900s That makes sense, because that is exactly what Anne is However, the point of this obvious detail is that sometimes it is fun to read a classic and try to put your mind in the mindset of who it was written for at the time A couple of the storylines seemed silly or to not make sense, but if I stopped and changed my mindset, it would click.
A bit of a history lesson combined with a well written story If you haven t read this before, give it a shot and maybe you will find your inner early 1900s Canadian teenager

Dear old world, she murmured, you are very lovely and I am glad to be alive in you This quote really accurately depicts how Anne lives her life and what makes you love her as a character She s stubborn and makes mistakes, but she also has a huge imagination and sees the world as beautiful and full of possibilities.
I loved this SO much and I m sad I never read it before I love all the characters and the plot, and it s really fun to see Anne grow up through this book The writing is also really really lovely.
I can t wait to read the sequels and follow Anne s story This has made it up to my favorite books of all time list, that s for sure.
REREAD NOTESI didn t think I could love this bookbut somehow I do I AM SO EMOTIONAL.
How do you review a book that transcends books Do you ever love a book so much that it doesn t feel like a book You re so immersed and reading is so effortless that you don t feel like you re reading at all The characters are real enough to be people, and their problems and happinesses feel like they re happening to you That was me with this book.
Which is all well and good until it comes down to reviewing it Basically what I m saying is I m at a loss for words I m saying I have nothing TO say This is just too damn good.
I didn t read this as a kid, or for many years after I didn t think I d be interested I had a copy for years with no intention of picking it up, because I am shallow as hell and only bought a copy in the first place because it s pretty In my defense look HOW pretty Honestly, I can t remember why I d
