"She'll have to go back." — Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert had decided to adopt an orphan. They wanted a nice sturdy boy to help Matthew with the farm chores. The orphanage sent a girl instead -- a mischievous, talkative redhead who the Cuthberts thought would be no use at all.

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 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!

I've just re-read this in my quest to read the classics I missed and/or have forgotten, and am again enamoured with Anne. Just as she does in the story, the girl grabs your heart and you find yourself rooting for her though you know she'll do well without your help. I find myself remembering feeling the way she did at times, with her imagination and the adults around her finding her creativity but silliness. Dear to my heart, and I'll be (re)reading the rest of the series as well! Next up is Anne of Avonlea.

Any one who reads this book will become a kindred spirit. Anne is just one of the most exciting people in the world! She keeps you on your toes and cause you to really look at life and find the joy and love in it. And who doesn't want a Gilbert Blythe? Still a master piece after 200 years!

Oh, what a perfect novel! This book will always stand out in my memory as the first book that ever made me cry - and while hundreds of other books have brought me to tears since then, even in re-reading this book nothing makes me cry harder than this one! Re-reading this has given me such pleasure, that I think I will have to re-read the whole series! In fact, I don't know how far I ever made it in the series, I don't think I have read them all, to be honest. I am looking forward to this project! This book just fills me with such joy! What a perfect delight it has been to re-acquaint myself with Anne Shirley.

Anne (spelt with an e) arrived at Green Gables as an orphan. The Bachelor ( Matthew) and his sister, (Marilla) who was an old maid had asked that the orphanage send a boy to help on the farm.

Anne talked constantly and day dreamed and that was the last thing this couple wanted. Anne was always getting into trouble because of her day dreaming.

Did the couple keep her or send her back? Well, you will have to read the story to get the answer to this.

Since I adopted two boys I found the book intersting.
