I tried to read this book as a child and I found it so unbearable that I couldn't finish it; I tried it again a few years ago and loved the whole series (Anne of Ingleside wasn't the best, though), so if you didn't love it the first time, wait a few years and try it again!
I am 35 years old and this book and its series is one of my favorites! So heartfelt and touching with wonderful lessons to use as a parent and entertaining for young girls going through trials of their own. In such a hectic world that we live in, it is so nice to sit down with these books and get lost in the peace and slow paced world of Green Gables.
Absolutely loved this book. I highly recommend that every girl read this, especially those who are prone to mishaps and adventures.
I love this book, it is on my favorite shelf next to the Narnias and Harrys.
A loved Canadian classic. Anne is such a lovable and feisty character with so much heart. I love the movies too. Actually just thinking about it makes me want to watch them again.
I really loved this book as a kid and I think it really appeals to childhood imagination. Read it as an adult and liked it less but none the less still a really worthwhile read!
This book is really great, never boring! You are always wondering what will happen next, and whether she will be sent back to the orphanage.
I have read it lots of times but I never get tired of it!
Amazing book!! Couldn't put it down! Funny, passionate, and sad this book is never slow, and always has you wondering what sort of trouble Anne will get herself and Diana into next!
Rumour has it....that the Duchess of Cambridge, formerly Kate Middleton, requested that PEI be included on the royal tour because Anne of Green Gables was her favourite childhood book!
I had to read and do a book study on this for school. I thought it would be boring, just like all the other books I had to read. Instead, I finished the whole book within a few days, long before my study was completed!
An all-tim favorite for anyone! What else can be said??
Of course I’ve read this before, both in high school and in university, but I don’t remember anything of the literary analysis I may have learned about it. I added this (and the rest of the series) to my library because some other girl in the future is still going to enjoy reading it, and because of my lasting love for books that detail everyday life.
I love the modern theme of this old book: nature and being a good person is a worthy substitute for religion. Anne is an incredibly well-fleshed out character: the agonies and ecstasies of her childhood are instantly recognizable. I also liked her (as does everyone else who enjoys this book because she IS the book) – this is fascinating because Anne is essentially Lucy Maud Montgomery. The author created a character out of her childhood self who was instantly beloved; is that ego, skill, or happenstance?
I own this book and I absolutely love the troubles anne gets into. Heartwarming and adventurous..
MY FAVOURITE BOOK EVER!! I love this book- it's amazing and inspiring and... CANADIAN!
I was surprised to find how thoroughly enjoyable it was to encounter such a fascinating and delightlful character as Anne.
My favourite book of all-time!
This book is still the best
