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.
This is a fantastic book full of love about a very imaginative orphan and people fall in love with her.
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.
This is a hardcover and illustrated edition of the story of Anne of Green Gables, a red-headed, imaginative, fiery-tempered, and talkative orphan who longs to belong somewhere.
This is a classic! Montgomery's style will endear you to Anne as well as to Matthew and Marissa Cuthbert who adopt this rea headed orphan and give her a home and love. Anne is creative and ends up in much innocent mischief inspite her best efforts to do good. From coloring her hair to accidentally drinking too much cordial, she always seems to be in a mess, but generations can't help but love her. Great read aloud.
