Montgomery’s literary classic recounts the exciting adventures undertaken by the fiery eleven-year-old Anne Shirley, an orphan girl accidentally adopted by middle aged siblings Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert. A coming-of-age novel, Anne of Green Gables focuses on Anne’s new life at Green Gables farm in Avonlea and her adjustment into the Prince Edward Island community. The story launches when the aging siblings Matthew and Marilla decide that they could use an extra hand around their farm, and believe that adopting an orphan boy would be an appropriate solution. However, due to a misunderstanding, the orphanage sends Anne Shirley instead. As Matthew heads to the train station to pick up the anticipated boy, he is shocked to be greeted by a red-headed, freckled and quite talkative little girl. Oblivious to the fact that a mistake has been made, Anne cheerfully enjoys the ride to her new home not hiding her enthusiasm whatsoever. Although initially spinster Marilla requires a bit of persuasion, both siblings are drawn in by the irresistible charms of the young chatty girl and accept the orphanage’s mix-up. Undeniably Anne adds the much needed color in the lives of Matthew and Marilla who are quiet and timid, while Anne serves as a complete opposite to the two. As Anne adjusts to her new surroundings, she leaves readers absorbed as she makes social gaffes in her clumsy attempts to soak in the social norms, religion, and morals with which her peers are already long accustomed to. Obstructed by countless mischief and creative excursions, Anne must make a distinction between reality and imagination as she walks along the path of self-expression. A timeless favorite, Anne of Green Gables leaves a mark on all that have come across the bright and imaginative character portrayed by Anne. It is nevertheless a little girl’s imagination, romanticism, free-spirit and playful antics that have presented Montgomery’s novel with a special place in the world of literature.

Great book and great narration overall.
I am a nine year old girl and I have to say I LOVE IT! I love it with all my heart!
Rachel is so nosey. she should definitely mind her own business.
but really, other than that, this book was so great, and reading it really helped me relax and just gave me a sense of happiness.
I loved listening to this book, and the characters voices were just as I imagined them, but every time Diana talked, I pictured an old woman instead of an eleven year old, so that was the only problem.
The read was great but Diana and Aunt Josephine's voice should be switched.
i love love love Anne of Green Gables and I read it about 5 times
Arielle Lipshaw is my favourite narrator. Her voice is so sweet. But Diana sounded like old granny.
The story was great i was listening to it on my drive home from work-as well , wish i could find another story like it i love all the different voices , i had a friend in school that had a bad sinus problem and she sounded just like dianas voice so it was ok for me reminded me of Cheryl, why cant i find #6 anne of engleside .
