This was a fascinating story about a young orphan girl who has quite an imagination. Although she is unwanted by most people and runs her tongue on and on, she finds herself in the home of Green Gables owned by a brother and sister who adopt her. This is filled with tales of how she spends her first 6 years in Green Gables in the first place she can truly call her home. It was encased with stories of friendship, heartache, and growing up. I wanted to read this book series for years (and even owned it as a child but had never read it until now. . and I am 28). I'm so glad that I have been able to read it. I laughed, cried, and could quote a bunch of it since I grew up watching the mini-series.

I must have read this book ten times as a child. Even as an adult, it never fails to cheer me up and remind me of how beautiful the world can be.

A brilliant orphan who just wants a home, a book, and to banish her red hair.
If you want a clean happy read for your daughter 9 up or yourself this is the series to read. Sweet & very funny, there is a little Anne in all of us. Best bet buy it for your younger daughter & read her a chapter at bed every night.

This book is a great read for an upcoming teen or tweener interested in life at the turn of the century but its appeal crosses all generations and genders. Equally as good as the Disney real-life portrayal of this 20th century gem!

When siblings Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert decide they need help on the farm they decide to adopt a boy to bring some youth and strength to help them. As Matthew makes his way to pick up the orphaned boy at the train station he finds that the orphanage made a mistake and sent a girl. Not just any girl but redheaded,and dramatic Anne Shirley. Anne is a dreamer, a free spirit and full of exuberance. Matthew and Marilla end up falling in love with and Anne even if she is drawn to trouble.

Anne Of Green Gables is the first book in a series written by Lucy Maude Montgomery (L.M. Montgomery). When I was growing up the t.v. channel PBS made this series of books into movies. I knew of them but only caught bits and pieces here and there. I hear they are excellent and hope to one day catch them. Not only had I not seen the movies but I had never read the books. Anne Of Green Gables was completely new to me. I loved Anne Shirley and her friend Diana. They were such dreamers and so passionate about life and its beauties.

If I had to pinpoint anything I disliked about Anne Of Green Gables it would have to be actually it would be nothing. I can not think of a thing I disliked about story. I mean Anne gets in trouble but the way she gets in trouble is just another piece of Annes character because usually when she in hot water it was because she was trying to be good.

HIghly recommend for girls from ages 10 and up. Boys might like it but it is a book of a girl in her world.
