Anne of Green Gables

Anne of Green Gables
By Lucy Maud Montgomery

I don't know how many pages because I couldn't find one on Amazon that had a correct amount

10 hours and 2 minutes listening time

Grade A

You can describe this book with just one word. The one word is not nice, sweet, interesting, great, perfect etc. The one word to describe this book would be DARLING! Everything about this book was darling. Young Anne reminds me so much of my niece Jade. Things that Anne would do or get into remind me of Jade. For instance there was this time at Thanksgiving dinner (or maybe Christmas) when Jade, out of nowhere, said, I signed up for the talent show at school. When my step-mom, Candy, asked her what she was going to do for her talent, Jade replied, I am going to play the trombone. This would be a wonderful talent to showoff, however Jade neither plays the trombone nor knows anyone that does. However, she is fearless, and fun, and when you get her started with a conversation, sometimes she just will not stop.

I really loved how the author created Anne. She would just talk and talk and talk (sounds a lot like me IRL) and would just go off on tangents but it is EXACTLY how a little girls mind works. Well little girls like me, and like Jade. I loved the trouble she got into, and I just loved her thought process. She was such a sweet little girl, and seemed to turn into a wonderful adult.

I was so sad to think that this book was going to end. I really didn't want it to end because the amount of crappy books I have read/listened to recently, or sad books, I wanted something to keep my spirits up. I didn't know until I was almost finished with this book that it was apart of series. And I also netfix'd the DVD. I will read the rest of the series too (hopefully I can get it on audio), and I look forward to reading the rest.

My word for this book is darling. Candy uses that word a lot, and it is one of my favorite words ever. But never ever have I known anything to deserve that word, more than this book.

I'm so glad you liked it. I felt the same way when I read it - I didn't want it to end, but I couldn't slow down because I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. Anne is a delightful character.
