    I don't often give books five stars and as I neared the end of this book I gave some thought to how many stars this book deserved I've read the Anne of Green Gables series once before over twenty years ago In spite of the amount of time that has elapsed I clearly recall reading the last book in the series very slowly and thinking to myself I will be so sad to not be able to read about Anne any When I picked up this book a few days ago to re read it I found within a few chapters that it was like seeing an old friend Anne was even delightful than I recalled since I now have daughters who share her scope for imagination her penchant for large words and her zest for life Reading about Anne's appreciation for life's loveliness made me appreciate my daughters and long to live in the moment myself So I decided that a book that feels like an old friend after twenty years deserves five starsAnne Shirley must be one of the most delightful characters ever written largely because she is far from perfect She makes mistakes as we all do but her mistakes are much funnier than my own feel and she makes me see the value in learning from each of them laughing at them and moving on Like my middle daughter there is no lukewarm with Anne I love that she approaches life enthusiastically despite have spent a decade belonging to no oneI also like that Anne talks straightforwardly about wanting seeking and building friendships Even now I am hesitant awkward and scattershot at building relationships I may meet someone who seems a kindred spirit but lack the time or let's be honest sheer boldness to approach them and seek to build a friendship We see Anne seek and build relationships not only upon her arrival in Avonlea but during her time at ueensOne reasons I re read this book was because two friends recommended it for it's fluency in writing dialogue Unlike Little Women which I attempted to read for the writing this book did not disappoint The dialogue sounds exactly like each character would sound and it flows smoothly from narration to dialogue and back In fact I'm baffled that Little Women routinely makes top 100 lists while Anne of Green Gables is nowhere to be found on the lists of must read classics Unlike the Little Women characters who are archetypes rather than three dimensional characters Anne is a bold a female character who refuses to be categorized That's exactly why I love her and love this book

    Dear old world she murmured you are very lovely and I am glad to be alive in youThis uote 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 possibilitiesI 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 lovelyI can't wait to read the seuels and follow Anne's story This has made it up to my favorite books of all time list that's for sureREREAD NOTESI didn't think I could love this book but somehow I do?? I AM SO EMOTIONAL

    actual image of me thinking about this book 😍actual full review of what i thought about this book 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 bookWhich 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 goodI 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 decided to read it in the first placeBut I am very very VERY glad I didI love Anne so much I love Green Gables I love Diana I love Matthew and Marilla later on I love Gilbert although I don’t really understand how people love him from this book alone Not much to see After reading this I was obligated to chase the high of the reading experience by picking up the next two installments as uickly as possible and they were just as good Mostly But still an unparalleled level of goodI guess what I’m trying to carry across here is that somehow this hundred year old children’s classic about an orphan girl moving to a rural island in Canada was one of the most unputdownable books I’ve ever readAnd also the writing is as pretty as the coverBottom line I want to live in this book please and thank you fun fact joy exists as a concrete object and it's called Anne of Green GablesTHIS BOOK IS PURE JOYreview to come

    The beloved classic 1908 novel about an orphan girl who mistakenly comes to the Prince Edward Island home of aging brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert who just wanted an orphan 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 involvedAnne 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 tremendously 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 book has a long beard My mind's eye refuses to see him that way LOL The miniseries has co opted my imagination And then there's Anne’s classmate Gilbert who lives to regret some initial teasing about Anne's hairThis novel has a healthy sense of humor that sets it apart from most literature of this period and keeps it from being too sticky sweet It’s really so charming with great insights into human nature and lovely descriptions of PEI It's a feel good story and a total comfort read Anne of Green Gables spawned a slew of seuels and five other related novels not to mention any number of film and TV adaptations Not all of the seuels are great reads like this one they start getting progressively sappy but I do recommend the first four books in this series if you liked this one

    This story is cute touching heart warming tear jerking In other words a classicThe 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 clickA 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

    45 starsAnne my lovely I feel restored Marilla 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 me —back 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 Gables and better every day of her life Full RTCPre reviewYou 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 ;

    Excitement hung around Anne like a garment shone in her eyes kindled in every featureOh 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 exuisite writing and vibrant characters one who relishes being steeped in another time and place and one who enjoys an all out fantastic story In short this book should satisfy nearly everyoneYou can’t help but fall in love with Anne She is the friend you have always longed for the daughter that will bring that much needed light in your life that student that any teacher would be proud to instruct She is funny imaginative bright and a regular chatterbox She laments about her red hair apologizes for being a ‘great trial’ to Marilla and always manages to see the positive in most everything However she does maintain a long standing rivalry with her peer Gilbert Blythe She was as intense in her hatreds as in her loves Nothing is ever lukewarm when it comes to Anne’s feelings There were moments I wanted to laugh with her and moments when I wanted to cry When she first arrived at Green Gables Anne learned that it had all been a mistake For Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert meant to adopt a young boy to help with the chores A little girl was not needed It nearly crushed me when Anne fell in love with Green Gables only to find that she must surely be turned away and carted straight back to the orphanage Have you ever noticed what cheerful things brooks are? They’re always laughing I shall always like to remember that there is a brook at Green Gables even if I never see it again What transpires after this will melt even the most hardened heartsSome might say this book is too wholesome too charming and perhaps too unrealistic I have to say that I don’t believe those are good enough reasons to skip reading this enchanting novel It didn’t take place just yesterday so I didn’t expect the trials and tribulations of today’s day and age The events do occur on an idyllic island so I felt the beautiful scenery I was immersed in was wholly believable Anne is not a perfect little girl and each character has their share of flaws Not every story has to be full of doom and gloom to get all the stars Sometimes one just needs to sit back relax and just surrender to the small pleasures in life We could all use a lesson from Anne’s book of optimism here and there Dear old world you are lovely and I am glad to be alive in you

    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 nowIt'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 uite refreshing Granted it is a children's novel and from the early 1900's—so it has that moralistic uality 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 smileIf like me you've never given Anne's story a chance I can highly recommend the audiobook route And I'm definitely going to continue listening to this series especially when I'm in need of a pick me up
