Wonderful book!

I got a copy with a beautiful green cover. It’s a little ratty but still a gorgeous cover. Overall a wonderful purchase!!

Cottagecore, but I wanted more.

Maybe the book just isn’t for me. I liked it fine enough, it was pleasant and passed the time, but there wasn’t anything keeping me hooked on this book. I liked it, but that’s kind of all. The voice acting in the reading helped me not get too tired of Anne’s long speeches, so that’s good. It just felt like nothing happened except Anne talking. And I like Anne fine, but I wanted something more than that. Pleasant, well-written slice of life. If you’re looking for heartwarming and low stakes with lots of charming philosophizing, this is the book for you. :)

Highly recommend!

This is such an incredible story! This is just the beginning!

Was not impressed

This version was cut down into a story book for young children. Big words and nice drawings but not what I wanted!

the pages were ripe and I read it a nd it was wonderful

A wonderful book!

I have read this book many times. Anne is such a captivating girl! You will enjoy this book. The characters are so real. I just can't say enough about this book...It's one of my favorite books of all time--and I have read a lot of books! I recommend it to anyone, especially preteen and teenage girls.


I really don't know how I am going to review this book. Putting something so beautifully alive into cold, brutal words has never been my forte. It seemed committing some kind of sacrilege, but nevertheless I felt something of loyalty to do so. Basically this sweet, innocent tale is about an orphan girl- Anne Shirley and the countless scapes that she seems to have a talent for getting into. Her beautiful, friendship with Diana Barry, friend, not to mention enemies at school, especially a certain significant one- Gilbert Blythe whom she will share a very special comradeship with and later on in life become his wife. This classic also tells about her wonderful flights of fancy, and the many enchanting places where she and Diana often build castles in the air. This touching, heartwarming tale has been spun so cleverly that Anne and her successors really do live! I can live and relive Anne's world over and over again, not once finding it tiresome. This beautiful, timeless classic is naturally the masterpiece of the Dreamer of Dreams- Lucy Maud Montgomery, whom I sincerely admire, for as she says " For things seen pass away, but the things that are unseen are eternal" Anne of the Island
